We apply the concept of statistical spin liquid, in which the doubly occupied quasimomentum configurations {|k⇅⟩} for quasiparticles are excluded from the Fock space, to a planar superconductor with real space pairing. The results compare very well with experimental data for the cuprates, namely (i) the condensed state appears only for the number of holes 0 < δ < 0.15-0.25; (ii) the temperature dependence of the gap is close to the BCS result, but the gap has systematically lower value and is of an extended s-wave form.
