Third hand high or low?
Holding honor doubleton, it seems normal to play the honor first.
Auction Whacking
I've talked about this one before. In an A/X Swiss Teams at the Dallas NABC; my partner and I were North-South, playing 2/1 game forcing: [code] North East South West 1S P 2D 4C P 4D Dbl all pass[/code] 2000 points later, West asked East why ...
Putting it to You
I've heard this attributed to Hamman.
Am I allowed to bid ?
Aren't South and West screenmates? Presumably South would have not alerted his 2 call, and if West asked then South would have explained it as a WJO in diamonds. Surely South's own lack of alert is AI to himself!
Robot Makes a Striped-Tail Ape Double
It's cute, but I don't think for a second that the bot was deliberately stripe-tailed aping it. Rather, I think it played your jump to 4 to have more high cards and less distribution, and was doubling for penalties.
There are many ways to get fixed: Part one of one to infinity
Aren't there plenty of quite likely distributions where 4 makes easily and 3NT goes down like a dog?
Do You Count Your Cards?
I once tabled a 14-card dummy, with my partner declaring 3. Nobody noticed. Partner claimed making 5, thus concealing his 12-card holding, and we scored up +200 and sent the board to the other table. It came back, and only then did we figure it out. So we re-dealt ...
Is there a name for this play?
The basic position in diamonds at the end – where the defense has two tricks but can't take them because of blockage: one defender has a singleton honor, and is endplayed if they win it; but the other can't crocodile because that sets up a winner for declarer – is ...
A score I've never seen before and probably never will again.
I did in fact call the director as soon as the diamonds hit the table. He was standing right there as I played the top diamond and my LHO took his ace.
Best line for this slam
What happens if East ducks the diamond?
