High-level defense problem
You need an analysis. I play a figure of club without an analysis. The only problem I have is: which figure?
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: J9765 K862 K4 75
After 4 I'll hear 5. I dont like it at IMPs.
They outsmart you
Then title of the article would be titled "I outsmart them"...
They outsmart you
Fact that W invented stiff queen lead does not mean that he is an expert. There can be players who will cover ten with jack. If someone does not share this reasoning can treat T as 5.
They outsmart you
I think the type of scoring doesn't matter very much. Let assume a principle: You try to win and if it will be impossible try to be minus one.
Moment of decision?
Nevertheless at many other tables they are going to play 4 after different bidding. In particular it is important to be down 1 for distributions where at other tables they are going to down 2.
Andrzej Matuszewski's bidding problem: AK876 Q84 943 QJ
I'd reply that it is not a typical situation. So my reaction may not be routine. I have minus-values: QJ. I.e. they are worse than xx. I wanted a reaction from my pd and I finally received it.
Andrzej Matuszewski's bidding problem: AK876 Q84 943 QJ
This remark is very important. Quality of partnership is not the only criterion in bridge. And here this is not straightforward: I can consider bidding after 2 underbids.
A technical detail
You can also pitch on diamonds.
Cash or not to cash?
I agree with all suggestions (except winning with K in trick 1). Nevertheless the line proposed gave us a bonus: W dropped a heart.
