C A((10)Q7
S A1097
H 9(8)

2/2 Hinterhand
J CD
C (A)1087
S A10Q(7)
H9
D8

1/18. Maria and I had the hand at 18, Maria making Spades schneider, and me, Grand schwartz. At the other table John took it in MH at 27 with this hand and went off in Diamonds

J H
C 8
S Q8
H AQ
D AKQ9
Skat CA S7

And you think I bid recklessly, John? :o)

2/2 Patrick and I took the hand at 20 and made Clubs schneider. A bit of mauering at the other table allowed Beate to play it for 18 in MH, and she went off in Hearts with:
