Both my bidding and play were poor. Here's an example of a poor bid. Jeff opened 1NT, RHO overcalled 2S and this was my holding:
What would you do?
I bid 3D (going through 2NT would have been a sign-off), so this was forcing one round. Over his 3NT response, I bid 4S (a general-purpose forcing bid). Jeff now bid 5NT (pick-a-slam). This is where I went off the rails. What should I have bid? 6C, of course. Instead, I bid 6D and then proceeded to misguess the direction of the diamond finesse for down 1 (Would you do better? If dummy shows up with Kx, who would you play for the Queen of diamonds?)
Here's an example of a poor play. The last-but-one board of the night, I lost my concentration and decided to play a dummy reversal line on this 4S contract:
Dummy has three straight diamond losers! What was I thinking?
A pleasant, fun evening, nevertheless. Pity my bridge wasn't better.
