The Rosenblum Cup

Some years ago, David Gold wrote an article where he afirmed:

I BELIEVE IN:

“SEVEN-CARD SUITS SHOULD BE TRUMPS.”

There he wrote:

You will almost never lose control when you have seven or more trumps in one hand. In addition, the ability to ruff gives you built-in entries to the long suit.

Almost all declarers in board three were in tune with David´s words…

Board 3
