Johnny will always be the first to admit that good results can often be down to good luck rather than good play. Why just the other day he picked up a very tasty looking ...... AQJ109xx......Qxx.....QJx.....(void )
His partner ( bless him ) held : ....Kx.....A109876.....xx......AKx
The bidding was over in seconds (4S - 6S ) but Johnny soon discovered the gods were truly on his side, when his LHO plonked down the jack of hearts as the opening lead.
Johnny immediately went up the the Ace.....only to pitch his two remaining hearts on the A/K of clubs. At trick 4 the 10 of hearts was played from dummy, covered by his RHO's king, and ruffed in hand with the 10 of spades. Trumps were drawn in 2 rounds ending in dummy, and now all three of Johnny's losing diamonds were lobbed away on the established hearts. So 6S+1 earned him an outright top.
Mind you , when it comes to luck Johnny has an amazing habit to take full advantage of it , as he proved above.
What a man......what a player !
