In the Open room, EW had an easy route to a Diamond partial that went down 1 (*The records are not complete here, so I have assigned the result based o­n IMP tally and normal expectation). In the Close Room, JM opened a light 1. EW ran into problems as a result and the ad hoc choice of 1Nt did not work out well. West's 2♠ must have been music to Ashok's ears. It went down three undoubled for a 3-IMP pick-up.
