DON'T SHUT HIM UF IF YOU HAVE mich a big hand that your partner's opening bid makes a slam seem very probable, bo careful that none of your bids along tho way is of exactly game. Such a call by you may be dropped, especially if his own holding is merely strong enough to have juati- aod a gqod sound initial call. In this Kind of spot, if you have shown such great-strength that, there Is no chance of his dropping you short of game, some new suit bid at less than game level may be helpfully Informative. Tracking any such suit to bid, it ts usually better to leap to a slam or a'alam invitation, rather than making a call of xacUy game. A K J V A K 9 4 * J 10 3 * A Q 0 S clarer made a grand slani, by winning tJie spade finesse, the expected argument broke out between North and South. North was the culprit. His 3-No trump bid risked the very pass It Invited. After South's Z-No trump, North's best bid was 3-Clubs, which nobody but a deliberate traitor should pass. South after that should have bid 3-Diamonds, also temporizing and giving extra information. The rest of it would depend on what slam conventions the side was using, if any. If none at all. North's natural call would be 6-No trump, and some players in the South position would take that to 7-No trump if they had eaten plenty of eggs for breaKfast and felt both strong ana lucky.
