Here's a memorable hand from Just Play Bridge on bridgebase.com
I'm south (playing with bots).



North's 3 should have promised 2. I couldn't bid 4 because it would show 0544 shape. I opted for a safe game in hearts with a 7-fit rather than rebidding without extra length or the ace. North didn't even correct to 5.

Running 3 trump reveals the 6-2 split. West ruffs a diamond and drives out the rest of the trump. Defense can run spades, but West instead returns a , handing me the contract.

Good defense by GIB to hold the contract to no overtricks. As for the 3 preference bid, I'm sure GIB N would have supported diamonds if it had better support, maybe a 7th or 8th diamond and a couple of more diamond honors. On the actual hand, this was a strong looking void.

We all make mechanical errors occasionally.
