Mistakes usually cost but here is an amusing exception :) I intended to open 1 but mis-clicked 1 instead. GIB leapt enthusiastically to 4 (Splinter). With no easy escape, I passed. 4 was a miraculous make. 13 imps rolled in :) Twice the margin by which the challenge was won :) IMPS is a lottery :)

Solid bidding by Nige1. A better declarer might have found a way to make 6. :)

I have done same. I pulled out 2 card with a weak 2 opener. I was with a intermediate partner. she had a big hand so bid 4nt. I was in a panic so passed. 10 tricks in no trumps played by partner was the best score. lucky also :)

I haven't done this, but have opened (a weak) 1N with a 4(23)4 then discovered all my black cards were in fact clubs as partner transferred to spades, bid 3N for the routine contract.
