Goodbye, Russ
This is very sad news. Russ and I went back to the '70s when we both lived in New England. My first friend in the family was his older brother Steve (who passed away in 1985). Russ and I were variously partners, teammates and opponents on many occasions, and always ...
Advanced safety plays
The second deal is the last board of the 2003 Bermuda Bowl. Declarer Lauria was manually playing dummy's cards because Versace had left the room to find out the status of the match. The safety play is the SPADE QUEEN, which would have guarded against declarer not noticing that ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Damo: If you're going to cite my article to support your theory, do all of us the favor of showing the deal and the specific actions you find "strange". Yes, I said that "off-center actions abounded" on the deal. The most glaring was a favorable third-seat weak 2 ...
Necessary Shift
West may have missed the killing defense, but he does have a perfect 13-card straight.
Nickell vs. Lall - Board 111 - 7!S
I'm relieved that our calculations of the relative merits of the two lines are now consistent, albeit not identical. I see that I erred by assuming that QJ would allow the suit to be set up with one ruff, which will affect my count of both lines. And my ...
Nickell vs. Lall - Board 111 - 7!S
Kurt: My math is different. I excluded deals with voids but included all other deals. I made the same assumptions about possible holdings from which the lead could be made (half of the time from J10 or J108, never from J103, even though I consider that last assumption doubtful). Line ...
Nickell vs. Lall - Board 111 - 7!S
I should have included the possibility of trying for queen-third of hearts. However, playing for it compromises some of the other chances, because it requires cashing AK before ruffing the first club. If either the Q or A is doubleton, then declarer must ruff an extra red card at the ...
Nickell vs. Lall - Last Board
I realize now that this squeeze is a variant of a guard squeeze. Imagine West with Jxx of clubs; it still works, because East can never throw a club. In many guard squeezes declarer cannot afford to cash a side winner early, lest he squeeze the opposite hand early, but ...
Board 24
Wooldridge did make four hearts, playing as described. I was an opponent. Inexperienced Vugraph operators made many errors throughout the early KO rounds.
RIP John Sutherlin
Devastating. A great player and a greater man. A true friend. The definition of strength in the face of adversity. Judy and I miss you dearly. Our thoughts are with Peggy.
