Two deals from common game Thursday Jan 17
6 feels like a 60-65% contract even after a club lead -- or am I off base? I'll let the mathematicians do the wrk.
Change of Pace Query: Your Option?
A singleton diamond looks quite plausible. I forbid the diamond lead.
NMF-Assess The Blame
I agree with Richard. I would raise 1NT to 2NT and not look for 5-3 spades. If spades were right partner might already have raised me.
What is partner looking for?
I think this asks for heart control. Could you have a 6-2-5-0 with very good two suiter and no heart control? If the hand opposite could be QJxxxx and a heart card or CAQJxxx then how is opener to know which he is facing? Aside: use 2NT as a semi-positive ...
Have u ever seen a defender get to ruff a suit they started with 5 cards in?
My record (written up in The Bridge World) is to get a ruff from a six-card suit. Not only that, BOTH defenders got a ruff in the same suit. I defended a 2 opener holding the West cards and saw this dummy on the lead of the K. (Apologies ...

I thought of making things less rather than more easy to understand by commenting that it's Dave's title but my wife... What I MEAN to say is that Dave is truly not to blame for any of this. It's my wife who was the victim of the ...
What is this dbl 1!C-(Pass)-1!D-(1M)-dbl
After 1-P-1-1 I used to play 1 was natural but an unbalanced hand, double four spades in a balanced hand.
Setting the record straight: the French pair did it
What a great article. Magnus you should send this to the ACBL -- bridge encyclopedia dept. -- in case in the next edition they want to update their history section.
Field day
The 6 call seems premature, since 5 (or 5) would get 6 and now North would respect a 6 sign-off. But if North had K instead of A you might reach the grand slam and make it. Really in answer to the question as to ...
Field day
I must be miscounting tricks because it looks to me that even if the heart queen comes down in 2/3 we only have 6, 4, 1 so we need spade finesse. Thus on spade lead we run it to hand and claim a few seconds later.
