I also had the Q guess on the 6 hand (page 6) on a spade lead.

My initial thoughts were that if my opponents gave me the count in hearts too easilly I would play for the short hand to have Q. But I got the count in hearts in the middle and I couldn't tell if they did on purpose or not so went for the “odds” and went down.

What I actually missed for thinking on the heart suit too much was the easiest clue of all. After a spade lead, East took a bit more time than he should to win his A. He was actually thinking about ducking it!. Thinking of ducking A cannot be justified unless he has Q+KJ. (he had Q+K only if I recall correctly).

Slightly dissapointed that nobody managed to play 6NT from West.

The first version of precision I played opened 2 with 4414, we didn't have any disaster from it before we dumped it

If you play a heart before knocking A East could fly on A and play a diamond leaving you with only 2, 2, 2, 1. Your line is assuming diamonds are 6-1, while Korbel maximized his chances when diamonds are 5-2.

I would give at least a bit weight to west considering winning Axx at first club trick. We are all human.

I tried 1-2NT-4, and couldn't decide if pass was LA, it seems 5-level is relatively safe, but on the other hand, partner shouldn't have hands that make slam.

You don't know, but you sure make a lot of wrong guesses, are you perhaps one of my usual partners in disguise?

According to the article, wikipedia is just one of many sources he has plagiarized (hope I wrote that word right)

You can build a specific lie out where dummy has Qxx and declarer J where low heart allows to make but K defeats.

I recall someone solving this by answering the question directed to partner before he could. Not exactly within the rules, but he got away with it.

If we assume that East has KJ, west certainly has room for 6 clubs, or even 7, I am not sure if the fact they will have to be specifically Q1098654 or Q98654 makes them less likely.

I suspect when americans refer to someone as silver life master or the like, they don't have a clue of his presumed skill either.

I would take double as penalty oriented. Not a command, but certainly not to be bid with 3145

people using the terms flight, bracket, sectional, seed, life master, those are the ones that annoy me. Although I am starting to understand their meaning after all these years, I know most people who don't play in the US have no idea what they mean.

IMO partner is limited to 15, we have no fit, 2 semibalanced hands with no fit and 30 HCP combined don't rate to make slam so I would pass.

Observing is not UI, the information you get from observing is UI

For me the biggest difference with Axxxx is that it provides a defensive trick. For offensive purposes, one is better opposite Kxx while the other is better opposite Kxxx
