All three seats declared at different tables, but only John made a contract. His was +20 in hearts as Mittelhand. The big gainers were Tom as Hinterhand and Alban as Vorhand, who defended while Vorhand and Hinterhand respectively went off.

It seems a fair result. From what I can see, in seat 2 Robin, Patrick and I all played sensibly, bidding up to 20 and then stopping. So I don't think I deserve much of a plus for making the same contract that Robin and Patrick would presumably have made if allowed.
