Leads from a New Suit when defending a Suit Contract
Right -- it was meant to be "Other"
David Parsons's bidding problem: JT85 K852 K4 K96
Unfortunately, the "vote so far" is a product of me posting the wrong problem. Argh! There's no way to eliminate the 27 passes that were associated with the wrong problem...so I'm looking at the passes minus 27 as the "real vote." So sorry everyone. I knew I ...
David Parsons's bidding problem: JT85 K852 K4 K96
Yeah, I made a mistake when posting this one, sorry. The question should have been from the perspective of partner, and South bid 2S on his second bid rather than pass. I'll see if I can edit the problem and restore it to what it should have been, even ...
David Parsons's bidding problem: 3 J8743 KT4 9753
Good comment. I was really afraid that partner would pass 3NT on a flat hand, and with the singleton spade, this hand plays much better in hearts than in NT. In fact, a DD simulation shows that even when partner has only two hearts a 4H contract is only a ...
David Parsons's bidding problem: 9 KJT43 KQ A8753
After 4NT, the response of 5S brings you to an unmakable slam in hearts. Partner has the Kxx of clubs and a doubleton diamond. His SAK is worthless. Just the way it goes, I guess.
David Parsons's bidding problem: K976543 J4 3 JT5
This was actually more surreal than you know -- East had a ten card diamond suit, headed by the AKQJT98, and made 5D. I've never seen a ten card suit before.
David Parsons's bidding problem: K976543 J4 3 JT5
He doubled and wondered if it was right. I told him I'd post it.
David Parsons's bidding problem: AK94 KT 942 K874
I didn't know that cue-bid was a general force in BWS. But that makes sense. Thanks, Paul!
David Parsons's bidding problem: AKQJ65 Q3 T3 863
Indeed (though it is Ax not Kx of clubs) this is a hand from the Common Game of Thursday afternoon last week, and the partnership can make 7NT or 7S. But we didn't find even the small slam and neither did the Bridge Winners group (the consensus bid just ...
Reopening Double by Partner
Leonard: I'll run two such simulations, with 1000 hands, so the margin of error is around 2%. First simulation: The strong hand is 5=4=1=3 and has 16-18 HCPs. The weak hand is 2=2=4=5 and has less than 6 HCPs. The simulation shows that ...
