Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: --- AQ875 J94 QJ832
Good point but it looks like if someone owns the spade suit it's not us.
Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: KT73 K83 98 J762
Well, I was East on this hand and we got a good board when N passed and South bid 3 which was down 1. 2 was likely down 2. I thought N should double with a good hand for defense in spades, but apparently most of the world ...
Easier Source
Kit- I would have won the first trick in dummy with A and led a small diamond at T2, then play on hearts. Is this line inferior to the suggested line of play or are they essentially transpositions?
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: K54 AT KT KQJT72
If partner shows 3 then I'll try 7. That looks a whole lot safer than 7NT. At matchpoints it's a tougher call but I think I still try 7.
Barry Dehlin's lead problem: AQT92 AJ7 Q 7543
If partner happens to have J I would like to see it at T1. Q it is.
Solution To NABC Starting Times: EVERYONE Can Have What They Want
Also, I may get a table at the nearby restaurant between sessions.
4!S MP-play
If E started with Kx (not the 10), then I can start running diamonds pitching hearts, hoping W started with at least 3 diamonds. If E ruffs in, I can overruff and pick up the trumps.
Who to blame?
Maybe I should have said that I would double with 4-5 in the majors unless the 5-card suit is sufficiently stronger than the 4-card suit.
Who to blame?
North by starting with 1 is almost but not quite denying 4 spades. Then by failing to bid spades later, S cannot expect a 4-card holding. I put most blame on North.
Who Are the Shrewdest BW Members!?
I'm waiting until the events are over before I vote.
