Precision help wanted 1
Maybe p-p-1C-1S-p-2S-3H might persuade East to raise to 4H. But noway 4H or 5C are cold on this case! IMHO percentage winning play would be in 3H making (only 9 tricks).
Cristian Dinescu's bidding problem: Ax KQJ987 QJ ATx
For the record at the table I did bid 4H, get doubled and made in comfort after my partner tabled an excellent dummy. The rest of the field played in 3D or 3H so we did get a Top. But as the majority voted 3H seems to be the safest ...
Missed game after Drury
North might even open the hand with 11 HCP and in this case South will surely bid game. Signing off in 2H is too conservative and he was punished to act this way. What can South do after he confirmed a full-opening bid and his partner signs-off in 2H ?
Playing 7NT with so-so cards and distribution
Dealer S: Vuln: All; 1NT (upgrade)- 2 (transfer to )-2-4NT (quantitative)-6NT (final decision)-7NT! Not very disciplined, pushed bidding by both North and South...
Playing 7NT with so-so cards and distribution

Playing 7NT with so-so cards and distribution
No, I'm just saying that getting six diamonds tricks is a guess. If you guss wrong you are already down. If you guess right, you aren't home yet...
Playing 7NT with so-so cards and distribution
Maybe! But you have too many losing options to execute a percentage play. And as cards lie the whole squeeze will fail since the Diamond Queen is with West, if you take this line of play.
What to rebid?
I agree with Gary! 3NT is out of discussion with a singleton heart so I will show my 4 diamonds support. If outside trumps break 4D is safe even with a lighter responder hand...
Counting
To make a joke borrow Dustin Hofmann like in "Rain man" ! He will be quicker and more accurate than a computer for sure. Seriously, keep practice. There is no other way.
In the Well: Brad Moss
Hi Brad, Can you share with us how do you approach a team's competition versus a pair's one ? How does your play and bidding strategy is modified ? Do you find easier to win a pair tournament or a team's tournament ? Thank you !
