I think the best line is start with finesse, especially when is unbid suit (VC, French declarer - 1-3N(bal raise)-4), so LHO's KQ is very unlikely. ditch for immediately successfull here, but we can easily lose 2-2 tricks in majors. Of course with given trump suit the best play is double hook, but we must give up sthg, so I will play later trumps from hand, slightly inferior line. A Danish commentator (not Roland Wald) said on BBO: Looks like a boring game in MA with no swing possible. What is NOT boring for Danes? Rain?

Thx to Traian Chira, really. But we can't see (so called) top teams vs. weak teams matches. It could have been 18+ movie, I bet.

I suggest following one: after RR (can be 1 group or 2) top4 are playing for medal(s), #5-#12 2 long KO matches for remaining 2 BB spot.

And what will be EC format in Budapest? Can we invent KO after shorter RR?

Ok, after 25 years they can play rubber bridge against each other.

Tarek, why do you think before 2010? What did happen then? I know, the infamous Bonn accident against us. And do you really believe they would give up their ‘fight’ after ‘clean’ play in Opatija? Don't joke with us.

I think Fantunes is like wrestling. We can play greco-roman or freestyle. But what if Romans play freestyle?

I think the real problem with FN version of Fantunes that they nearly never miss a game when opener is maximum for 2X and not overbid when opener is minimum. Same is true for 1N. Have you ever seen 2N by them?

Of course, A of C onside isn't sure. But what are your chances if its offside? (Say Q-hook). And I think u missed a chance that pass-than-weak 1/2 is very likely if he has J (instead of your Q-examples)of H and 2 outside big cards.
Ok, I find a (very) slim chance when hook-with-Jack gains: LHO has 2614 or 1615 with Q of AND stiff K/A of . Do u think its better line than A of onside with blockage?

I think the correct line is to eliminate Hs BEFORE Club up, so trump to hand, A of H (diamond ditch), H ruff, trump to hand, Club up. West must take it, and can lead diamonds but East will take 2nd one after we don't cover. And either ruff-sluff or C lead makes it.

Of course 1 hand doesn't prove anything, but in actual hand we could make 3C with a good play, 3N with a perfect eyes meantime against 2Hx we have 7 top tricks. But what I really don't understand: when we have 23+ HCP and likely H trick (how many entries to dummy will be?)could they really make 8 tricks? Doubt it. Another remark: I think with passed pd we need more or same, not less for same bidding, e.g. X here by pd.

I think to transform +200/+500 into minus score is risky as well. Can we make 3N when they make 2Hx?

Strange to me that only 1 member mentioned pass, what is (to me) clearly superior to 3N commitment with aceless hand.

if u play sound w2 (all of us in vuln) in that case weaker, if it shows 5-10 than ‘not matching’, lets say 4card OM.
(but for us 2 is different - 18-19 bal if play Std, flannery OR precision if we r playing precision)
