Done. (Thanks Ozzie).

“Knowing if opener has a shortness is of little value.”

Actually, it can be utterly invaluable, as illustrated by A. Woo's example.

He's just being arrogant, which is typical.

Precisely. I actually wonder if Pete's partner (one of the finest players at our club), forgot they were playing UD. There is simply no reason to play a low diamond at trick one otherwise.

I agree. Looking at the QJ10 of diamonds remaining in dummy, partners play should be SP.

I have a (crazy) friend who runs ultra marathons, which take about 24 hours. I used to think they were made of iron. Now I know the true Man Of Iron, and his name is Daniel Jackson.

“Passing in 1st seat vulnerable describes the hand even better.”

Finally, some sanity!

While we're at it, let's talk about abortion and gun control.

I would encourage anyone to check out Max and Debbie's outstanding defense against Hamman/Berkowitz 3S Board 15 2018-5-13 Segment 3 of 8 (currently about the 31st entry down the archive list).
A very nice trump promotion, (my personal favorite play in bridge).
Max's early duck of the K of spades was critical.

“Was the postmortem equally ungracious?”

Oh, much more ungracious, but I accept full responsibility for my unwise double. I still don't agree with the opening bid though. And I apologize for missing your earlier question: The opponents played and made 4H, undoubled. And yes, North opened 1D at that table too. It's obvious that I know even less than I thought about this game.

We had a great Sectional this weekend, and 4 local high school seniors were paid to caddie for the Sunday team game. During a lull, a caddie was asked to turn cards for dummy, and this caddie admitted A) not knowing the suits, and B) had never played a card game in her life. Bridge isn't dead, but it's on life support.

Lol Lotan Fisher filled one out. I guess that's as close as he'll get too.
