Defending Champions
I thought the point of problem 2 was to duck the A. I don't know if it's a good play but it would be necessary if declarer held KQ76x, AQx, x, KQJx in order to deny declarer the 2nd entry to dummy to strip West of s and ...
A mistake made against me (or, how do we teach counting and inference)?
With xx and QJxx declarer would not finesse into the danger hand. Declarer has several combinations adding to 9 tricks without extra diamonds.

A declarer play poll
You overlooked the 2 bid.
How do you play the diamonds?
I thought writing a correct formula might get the conversation on track. Why did you offer a couple of incorrect ones?

5/8 = 38.43/61.57
Play 6NT
Mike, you are right that I ignored the information from LHO's choice of suit to lead. I was aware of that and other artificialities of my calculation but, given paying tasks elsewhere on my desk I wasn't motivated to get tedious. Andrew -- close. The 44% occurred because I ...
