Dr. Ira Abrahamson bid and made 7 notrump in back-to-back hands, which is like making two holes-in-one in successive outings of golf, he says. He made the first hand in his apartment, where he plays on Tuesdays, and it was the last hand bid of the day. His hand was: S – A, 10; H - K, 8; D – A, K, Q, J, 3; C – A, K, J, 5. His partner’s hand was: S – K, Q, J, 7; H – A, 7, 6; D – 10, 6; C – Q, 7, 4, 2. He made the second 7 notrump bid two days later at Sarasota Yacht Club on the first hand bid of game. His hand was: S – A, Q, 7, 2; H – K, 6; D – A, Q, J, 8, 2; C – Q, 2. His partner’s hand was: S – K,9; H – A, 9, 7, 3; D – K, 7, 4; C – A, K, 10, 2. You could give him a hand, but after these, he doesn’t need one!
