Who's crazy ?
I voted "auction 1 is fine, auction two is crazy" but I'm with a lot of the commenters here in that I probably wouldn't choose the 2 bid myself. "Not horrible" would be a better description than "fine".
K98x vs AQ7x
Yes, you're right, as noted further down by Martin Henneberger also. Patrick Laborde's calculation of the probability agrees with mine.
K98x vs AQ7x
Yeah, you're right: cash the A and if East plays an honor, cash the Q next; if West, lead to the K. In this way you pick up JT doubleton, or else get to take a proven finesse. So restricted choice doesn't come into it, and my comment ...
K98x vs AQ7x

ATB - 15 imps away
Without the double N-S score +630 instead of +170, don't they? Saving at least a couple of imps.
Harrison-Gray the novelist - which pen name?

How do you respond to this question?
[i]I refer to 'Round' and 'Pointed' suits routinely[/i] Me too.
What's your line?
I'm pleased to see the votes for going up ace, and especially pleased to see the comments from Michael and Kit. That's what I did. On the J, RHO pitched a heart. When I next tried to cash a high heart, LHO ruffed in – the A lead was ...
David Goldfarb's bidding problem: K964 AJ85 KT75 T
In actual fact, declarer did not pass the 2S bid. He bid 3C, so I passed again. Partner bid 3NT, which I corrected to 4S, which made. I couldn't help wondering what I would have done if RHO [i]had[/i] passed.
