On what basis do you think that you could sue, Marshall?

It was certainly part of Baron but it was fashionable amongst Acol pairs in the early post-war years.

I wrote in the November 2006 Bridge Plus that the original H-G book was my favourite bridge book of all time and the one that would accompany me to Radio 4's desert island. I haven't changed my mind since.

Say that you rebid 3NT. You get a spade lead. You still need your diamonds to run and for partner to produce the ninth trick. This is too much to hope for.

If you were going to bid, the time was earlier (I wouldn't).

My spades are fractionally better so I go for a spade.

The main disadvantage is your lack of aces. If you had A10xx x Ax A109xxx, it would be a different matter.

Were you at the YC on the night many years ago when there were 23½ tables and Warwick put out 48 boards? He didn't understand why this might not be a good idea.

I'm playing this game to win and North made a mistake. I take advantage of his mistake and pass. It could have been a bidding mistake or a playing mistake; instead, it was a concentration mistake.

If 3 is an intermediate or strong jump in the N-S methods, this would be a comparable call.

In relation to Raymond Brock's updated version of Harrison-Gray's Country Life Book of Bridge, the blurb is:

“This is a clasic collection of bridge articles that first appeared in Country Life. In this book they have bben editied and updated by the late Raymond Brock. Illustrated with photos.

Raymond Brock was a sesoned internation player who won two world championships as the captain of the British Junior teams.”

Five typos - not bad going. But if you haven't got the book, it's a real bargain at £4.99.

I agree with Dave. The suit should be playable opposite a singleton so KQJ10xx or KQJxxxx.

Whilst not disputing the soundness of your analysis, leading 2 from four to the eight is hardly likely to inform partner as to the position in the suit.

I'm probably going to play in 6 but it does no harm to bid 4 for the present.

I wouldn't have bid 3. I would have passed and reopened 2 with a double.

I agree with Dave: this is a penalty double and I expect partner to have the contract beaten in his own hand.
