GRANNOVETTER: I supporse one diamond.

DREYFUS: Well, I was fairly sure that, with my wild distribution, the opponents probably had a big fit in one of the majors. So I opened four notrump (Blackwood). The odds were simple to calculate. If partner showed one ace, I had a two-third's chance of it being in hearts or diamonds. He did show an ace, I raised to six and it was a red ace.

GRANNOVETTER: But when I do that with my wife, she always has the spade ace.

DREYFUS: Well, marriage is not a variable I can help you with.
