Best play for 6NT
I have seen and written about a fair number number (litotes) of false cards in my life and never seen anyone propose the duck with K10x as East. Thank you David; I'm going to pay off to it -- if I wouldn't have found it I deserve to lose ...
♠AQJ4 ♥86 ♦75 ♣AK642 revisited -- subtitled: I'm only here for the beer.
Apologies; fixed now and footnote added.
Do bridge paradoxes exist?
When I saw Alan's mail I jumped to the completely wrong conclusion that it was changing the PARTNERSHIPS which would lead to one side beating the other. eg: Hamman/Wolff beat Hamman/Zia who beat Zia/Rosenberg who beat Rosenberg/Hamman who beat Hamman/Wolff. This example is totally ...
What are the ruling principles here?
Just for the record; I expected south to have a hand like this but with K for his pause (maybe a fifth spade/K10xx). The fact that he really doesn't have much to think about does make his partner's case slightly better! But does South have enough for ...
Do bridge paradoxes exist?
Not quite the same as the other learned discussions above. David Burn might remember a deal I think involving GB Juniors in Plovdiv where GB made 6NT in one room and defeated 3NT in the other. The hand on lead led its long suit against 3NT and cashed out; they ...
What are the ruling principles here?
Given the particular circumstances of this case I'd say 30-40 seconds would not count as slow here. Anything more than that... slow. And yes the 7 bidder might well have done much better than bid 6. 4, 5 and 6 all seem sensible. I ...
Aggressive or Hyperaggressive?
Swinnerton-Dyer would have found a way I'm sure.
Aggressive or Hyperaggressive?
I don't play this; but I wonder if it works: Over xx (strong) give up on defending as advancer. If they psyche they deserve to beat you. I think pass should get partner to bid his minor when he has hearts and xx when he has spades? Now advancer ...
common game Tuesday 8th board 15
My ideas are frequently associated with crocs in one form or another though often there is a 'k' in there. Just for the record I believe in the second example North must follow with the jack on the first trump knowing that against competent declarer play he needs partner to ...
Auction Whacking
I do not remember who my partner was but I think I remember my opponents. Young Chelsea c 1985-1990. 1-Pass-2-Pass Pass-x-Pass-Pass 2NT-Pass-Pass-3 Pass-4-All Pass Not a great spot but it made. The auction may be close to unique for only one reason, in that all four ...
