You need an analysis. I play a figure of club without an analysis. The only problem I have is: which figure?

After 4 I'll hear 5. I dont like it at IMPs.

Then title of the article would be titled “I outsmart them”…

Fact that W invented stiff queen lead does not mean that he is an expert. There can be players who will cover ten with jack.
If someone does not share this reasoning can treat T as 5.

I think the type of scoring doesn't matter very much. Let assume a principle: You try to win and if it will be impossible try to be minus one.

Nevertheless at many other tables they are going to play 4 after different bidding. In particular it is important to be down 1 for distributions where at other tables they are going to down 2.

I'd reply that it is not a typical situation. So my reaction may not be routine.
I have minus-values: QJ. I.e. they are worse than xx. I wanted a reaction from my pd and I finally received it.

This remark is very important. Quality of partnership is not the only criterion in bridge. And here this is not straightforward: I can consider bidding after 2 underbids.

You can also pitch on diamonds.

I agree with all suggestions (except winning with K in trick 1). Nevertheless the line proposed gave us a bonus: W dropped a heart.

Whatever I say , Lefty is going to say 3. But it is exactly what I have to say!!

Answering to Michael: we are at MPs. N's shot was very risky, but it was (or even: is) quite accurate.

Even with 3 diamonds in declarer's hand there is a case when clubs still have a future for us.

Probably it is simplest to assume that pd had no other no-risky choices.

I think that Lefty has hearts: the natural reason to enter 1N and wait for the hearts lead. That is why one may consider a risky double now.

1N of Lefty was fatal for me, but I didn't know that he is going to bid it :-(

Say, AQT or 4 not bad spades.

In my standards now x is propositional.

Yes pd's 2 instead the first double was better. Even my 3 was better since LHO could bid 3. But after so many bad bidding decisons we must face a bad contract. It is frequent bridge reality.
Declarer did not beat my J to play - most probably - hearts.
What can I do now?

First sentence of my problem is: Pd can have 5 hearts. Now he can consider my doubleton. As you see even with my good tripleton our contract 3 is bad and it will be doubled.
