Bill March's lead problem: KJ4 98 KJ985 K54
I’ll be publishing an article later re aspects of this hand - certainly my first thoughts were as to what spade I should lead.
What is the best Grosvenor Gambit you've seen?
Declarer (on my left) was in 6C,my trumps were Q10x, dummy had Kxx. I’d like to say this was a deliberate Grosvenor with declarer leading a low club to partners J dummy’s K and my 10 but no, the lead was in dummy and the King cashed ...
In the Well: Mikael and Ola Rimstedt
Richard - I remember an impressive hand (from a bidding competition)by the Sharples that was reported many years later. Opener has a 2434 18 count and responder a 4432 13 count - the heart suit being being something like Jxxx opp 109xx. Their simple auction (following the principle of not bidding ...
ATB - missed slam
Ken/Nikos - my apologies, I know my percentages but had an aberration and was thinking of a 4 - 0 split. I would have been better off making the general point that people often talk about 50/50 slams and not considering the small(but not insignificant ) chance of a very ...
ATB - missed game
Nigel Kearny has said most of it but since there are still very confused postings I'll have a go. Acol has many weaknesses but this hand isn't one of them. If playing 12-14 NT then 2C is the system bid as is a 2H rebid by South(though ...
ATB - missed slam
It may be that friendly leads make this better than 50% in practise yet there seems to be no acknowledgement so far that there is a 5% chance of a trump loser.
James Tyner's bidding problem: AQ873 863 K A862
At this vul I’d expect a majority for a 1S opener with a small diamond , perhaps that should be the next poll.
James Tyner's bidding problem: AQ873 863 K A862
I should have abstained,has this been posted to settle a bet of some sort?
The History of History (Part 1)
Re the Reese/Schapiro hand. Though Reese was one of my bridge heroes(the other being Belladonna!) I reluctantly came to the conclusion that they were signalling in 1965. However the hand evidence(no matter how hard Truscott tried) was never that strong. This was one of 2 ‘standout’ hands ...
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: JT932 --- 85 KQJ863
I wouldn’t normally abstain just because I disagreed with the previous bidding but this crosses the line ,no-one prefers bidding a 5 card major over a 6 card minor more than me but the 1S bid is simply ludicrous and 3S suggests the hand has been missorted, Since the ...
