I'd pass the double and lead the K.

If it's two randoms at the club I vote a forget.

AKx, AJTx, KQJx, Kx.
Perhaps a similar 2=4=5=2.

I think you can gauge the chances of a forget. I assume it was you and your partner so that is low.

Hi Kurt, East holding short J is ok, too.

What bullshit. Sample size 500, across all nationalities.
Imagine how significant when making up numbers for each nation.
By the way, Italy and Argentina were rated likely to cheat by responders, not by some analysis of evidence. So this is just a measure of prejudice.

Please no one flag this.
Such a monumentally moronic comment deserves to stand and advertise the intelligence of its writer.

Neither lead strikes me as exceptional. Actually the first one looks perfectly normal.
Either way you may also take a look at the bottom right of page 9 of the very same bulletin.

Yes, you still got to be careful, partner holds AK7xx, dummy shows Jx.
Depending on your leads and the card declarer plays on the trick there may be ambiguity.

Well, it seems there was little hope of figuring this out.
Partner held: xxx, AKxxx, xxxx, x.
1330 away!

Of course you didn't, partner did. Silly, sorry.

Tom, I was definitely slow-poke rather than fast-track.

However, while making up story lines one could take into account also that F/N were hardly ever juniors at the same time, they both played with partners who didn't have a significant pro bridge career and that Versace and Sementa were of the company, too.

On the whole, I would say that the connection between Z and F/N 30 years ago wasn't meaningful at all.

I was coached by Zucchelli at about the same time as Fantoni and Nunes. If you want to believe there was even a whiff of impropriety let me tell you that your imagination is leaping wildly

I like making game tries when it's obvious to partner how to evaluate his hand. Hence 3.

Isn't 4 lazy? KQxxxx, xxx, Ax, Ax isn't far fetched and could be better.

East had a difficult choice, West had an easy alternative (4NT).

I have hopes to get right the next one.
On this occasion I will discard the 7.

On the other hand, I have implied a couple of defensive tricks by opening and partner has shown none with his bidding.
