As long as the readers do not need to pay to understand, I do not see any issue

So are we saying if I play 1 board in duplicate cash games and stop playing, 2 Euro will be added in my account? or there is a dependency on number of played boards/spent time.

May be more than 80% vote will strongly suggest that there is a definite implication of the UI since according to me there is no obvious choice of lead without the UI, but may be a better way would be to post this as a generic lead problem without the UI and compare the results.

I am curious if any clear inference can be drawn from the pause and this poll wil help me to find that out. Your suggested poll might not be able to indicate a particular lead, however this poll will show if there is indeed a clear cut implication of the pause.

Agreed, however the intent is to know if East indeed used the UI or not, if his lead maches with the majority of the Vote ( obviuosly based on the UI ) then there would be a possiblity that East used that

Your opponents were Pepsi & his partner Michal Kwiecien, dont you think if declare needed one trick, he could have gotten that by pulling small at trick 2? if S has the A he would almost always duck that and if N has the A, it would be very difficult for him to shift .

I was also wondering while I was posting this …that someone might get surprised , the hand is so common, players who have been playing bridge for some time should have a clear opinion on this. However, I came to know that the opinion is not same for the experts as well, when I invited with this hand in a local tournament, some of my team mates expressed that they would not do that ,afterwards I discussed this with some of my friends from Indian bridge and was surprised to know that there are two different camps. You can see that the result of this vote shows the same difference as well.

We play it when the partner of doubler sits after the suit biderer, when the doubler sits after the suit bidder we dont play the pass as penalty.

I do not think 4 is a cue bid, it should be only and and does not say anything about

You u r right that declarer's line wins most times but my point was that K is a superior play in case you know that west has a singleton . I play K West ruffs and back a , I take that in dummy and ruff a in hand, cash my A and ruff a in dummy. Now I play the K and come back to my hand with Q and play a winning for 10 sure tricks, the difference is you can cash two rounds of s here before running the long .

In the line of play you stated above, I don't believe there is a guess, you should always over ruff the 4th with the J and hope that W has the Q, if W does not have that you can not make the contract since no E hand can be constructed where he can not establish a trump trick ( if he has the Q ) by pitching a black suit ( or depending on his shape ) on the 4 th ( his P ruffs and you pitch a ).
