Avon Wilsmore's bidding problem: AJT53 KJ43 T64 5
What is more likely, exactly 3-3-1-6 or partner holding one of: 2-4-2-5, 2-5-2-4, 1-5-2-5, etc. So, yes, double can come up empty, but so can 2 and it may well do so more often than double.
Avon Wilsmore's bidding problem: AJT53 KJ43 T64 5
Even if 2 is an inverted raise, game is still possible for our side. Give partner as little as: Kxxxx, Qxx, x, xxxx and we can make a surprise 4 game. (And remember, partner could have an ace more than that). So even though entering the auction ...
Jess Cohen's bidding problem: 9 JT AQJT976 AJ9
3 is much more attractive at IMPs.
Kevin Fay's bidding problem: 97532 Q9 A62 973
There are game chances and vul at IMPs I don't need great odds to justify bidding it. I want to offer 4 and 5. However. 4 leaves partner room to bid 4, if his are excellent, which I will pass.
Jeff Lehman's lead problem: A654 84 T73 QT82
Excellent point.
Restricted Choice
“The statement that restricted choice produces 2-to-1 odds is based on the implicit assumption that P(x)=P(y)=P(xy) which does not always hold.” It's not an assumption. It always holds (the second equal sign should be an “approximately equals” sign) for a fair and honest shuffle ...
Niall Igoe's bidding problem: JTxx QJTx xxxx x
Both are vul. Even if we do have a fit, we are no lock to make a 2-level contract.
Paul Gipson's lead problem: 75 K742 A532 QJ5
I need less from partner in hearts than in clubs to establish 2 tricks for the defense (and i don't expect partner to hold much). I might rethink this aggressive lead if my opponents are known to be weak players.
Gregory Nowak's lead problem: J987 T873 A74 63
Declarer is void in hearts. If dummy has AK declarer may collect fast pitches for minor losers if I am not careful. So A followed by a continuation or a club depending on what I see.
Restricted Choice
"The concern I had, and still have, is that after declarer cashes the ♠A and RHO follows with the ♠J, you say “This looks like a restricted choice card combination, but it's not.” " I said that because it isn't a restricted choice situation. RHO is many time more ...
