VERSACE-LAURIA BID THE SLAM

I feature this hand because the commentary is very apt: bidding and making are plenty after 1♥-1NT start. China just made 1NT Dbl.

I think Versace  did not think about seven.

To even talk about a grand slam being biddable means that we are looking at the favorable position in the red suits. They did well to bid the small slam considering the first round of bidding.
