>“TDs need to decide on whether a card has been played or not. The decision is yet to be made.”

Just wondering, since the contract anyways ended up 2 down, why this really matters?

Were the defenders appealing for 3 down?

Anyways, it's now clear we will need professional studio-quality sound-recording and also ultra-high-speed gigapixel video-quality in all future competitions.

There should also be 4 additional such cameras pointing directly at the face of each player including state-of-the-art eye-movement tracking-software plus brain-scan helmets connected to their heads, to make sure we don't miss anything, and all director/committee-calls will be 100% just and accurate!

Seems obvious from the “hand-language” of South it was he who called director.

Not that I know why it matters….

Link more directly at the sound:

From the intonation/“music” of the words (going up like that) sounds much more like “thank you” to me.

Would just be too darn embarrassing to continue hearts if the lead was singleton….

Assuming, you know your opponents,
what would you do if the lead was
a. fast?
b. slow?

hmmmm…. since it's a play-problem, I guess we should at least not start with a trump….? :)

if you pass, there is still 75% it will find a different suit.

if you bid a different suit, there is still 67% it will lead one of the two others :)
Plus the risk it will insist on playing in that suit up to the 6-level or higher :)

Yes, choosing different spotcards may generally make the robots defend differently.
The reason is that you change the monte-carlo random samples for the double-dummy simulations.

Obviously you might use this to “create a swing”, if you feel you need one.

But I doubt you can otherwise exploit this in a meaningful way, since you might just as well prompt the robots to find a better defense, as a worse one.

seems enough to just bid 3 on those…

Looks like we first need to figure out why the 3 bidder could not overcall or preempt s on the first round, and still wants to bid at the 3-level here…

I miss one option:

(x) The formatting of this question could be more readable.

Does it?
If they win and continue spades or hearts (or clubs from East),
it looks like you only have 11 trix and will need the club-finesse, too…?

Prob
P 1 1 3 4

Or maybe
P 1 1 2 2 3 4
Where 3 could be a strong heart raise…

But how does leading the Q protect against bad breaks?
