To Show or Not To Show?
Even if you don't show the results & show just the percent, a strange percentage for a normal result OR a low percent for an excellent result could be a tip for a scoring error... and N can now pull the contract backup to make certain it was done correctly ...
Over my shoulder
Henry, since the 8 is the highest outstanding , partner isn't "wasting it" just to get a shift. When he plays the 8, either he started with doubleton K8 (unlikely) or he also holds the 7 (and possibly other s). Whichever the case, there is no urgency to ...
Over my shoulder
As clever as declarer's play appears to be, I do not like East's play of the 6. Could you have gone wrong if your partner had played the 8 instead? I can't construct a hand in which partner plays the 8 & the shift is now urgent.
This doesn't happen in the textbooks.
Pretty strange auction... clearly declarer mis-sorted & had a diamond in with his spades!
Bruce Schwaidelson's bidding problem: 7 KQJ3 JT9765 AQ
Thanks, Lynn... we were not playing Astro Q-bids.
I'm Still Alive
Glad you're still with us, Larry, but you would think that with such an uncommon last name you wouldn't have this problem. OTOH with a name like mine -- the confusion never ends. :)
Double Dummy problem 6N
Notice that you can make 12 tricks without ever cashing the A. On the final club, E must pitch the J & W the 9 -- but look what happens if S pitches his last spade instead of a H... D to the A & back to the 10 forces a pitch ...
Serious 3NT question
Gary, you may not be driving blind, but you are seeing things... your hand has 14 cards -- presumably an extra club.
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: J8xxx 8x A9 KTxx
This hand is right on my matchpoint overcall "borderline". I generally like bidding on the 1-level rather than passing so I'm calling 1 on this one... I may regret it later when pard leads the K from Kx.
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: --- xxx KQ9xxx KTxx
I can't imagine calling only 3 with this 6-loser hand.
