September 2. hand 1/4

While I was writing up the hands I noticed hand 4 of session 1, on which I was the non-playing dealer.

Code: Select all
        Vorhand Mittel  Hinter  Skat
J       HD      -       CS   
C       -       97      TKQ8    A
S       8       TQ9     K7      A
H       TQ97    A8      K   
D       T87     AQ9     K   

At both tables Hinterhand made +48 in clubs schneider, the bidding having stopped at 24 at one table and 18 at the other. Isn't it clear that Vorhand should bid up to 59?

Yes. Presumably they both overlooked the possibility. I have done similar things in the past.
