Away from Tannery Row
Sarah, you know full well that the declarer in your slow played hand did not say that he was playing slowly to confound the opposition. Indeed, I believe you apologized for that misrepresentation at the time.
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
Queen Margaret laments a costly revoke in Henry VI, Part II: “A heart it was, bound in with diamonds.” Shylock also has cause to regret a careless discard: “Why there, there, there! A diamond gone cost me two thousand ducats in Frankfort (sic).” Junior bidding seems to cause some squabbles ...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
Apologies, Lilias. An autocorrect error, but my fault for not noticing. Peter's source is a blog that only ran for a few months. There are a few red flags for fact checkers: it misspells stature instead of statute; it talks about British stature, when UK law generally distinguishes between ...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
Liliana, I too would have been shocked if these were legal terms in 2005. Peter's post illustrates another problem with quoting from the internet - it is often wrong. Idiot was a legal term from the middle ages, and imbecile became a legal term in England and Wales from the ...
Harry Meacham's Yarborough
There's a reference to the coroner's report in the Independent (Elizabeth City, NC) of August 30th, 1929. https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83025812/1929-08-30/ed-1/seq-3/ See the top of the page. The coroner, S.A.Nathan, believed the death to be an accident, and that Harry thought ...
A game of pigs.
That looks right. The description of the game in this article http://wickedchopspoker.com/simpleton-country-folk-hog-wild-for-pig/ matches Pedro. I can't find a working link to the rules of Pig, although there is a fleeting glance at them in this video. https://youtu.be/Wusjo45UMTo
Finesse or drop?
If you think that a defender with QT would always ruff low first, but with QJ or JT would choose at random, then your strategy with QJT should match that. Your first two cards will be the T,Q 1/3 of the time, and the four QJ or JT ...
Finesse or drop?
Yes, Richard and Kenton have convinced me that I was wrong, and the overall evidence points to a 7222 shape and dropping the SJ.
Finesse or drop?
Vacant spaces (7 v 12) gives odds of 3.85% for initial QJT,1.54% for QT. Divide QJT by 3 for restricted choice, so it's about 55% for the finesse now.
Extremely difficult problem
I certainly would not have seen the necessity of winning with the Q and not the A at trick 1.As David says, a lovely problem.
