Plan your play7
If we play A and Heart towards the queen and if the trumps are 3-1 off side North will pull two rounds of trump leaving only one trump left dummy. South will lead a spade when in with a diamond forcing us to ruff. The defense will get at least ... had findhes
Greg: I agree with you 100%. Ducking the first club has less to gain when you give up on the possibility of 3-3 clubs break. It did not seem the right play to me. That is why I commented that one might play differently on a forum hand. had findhes
I guess my attempt at some humor was not … My comment “you play differently from obvious line of play at the table” was specifically aimed at ducking the first club. I was responding to Greg Lawler’s comment, which was deleted later. Greg asked why I would give up the ... had findhes
Greg: I was responding to Rohit and Michael's comment on ducking a club. I did not see your comment. West might not want to lead into declarer's strong suits - Clubs and Hearts. So, West might lead diamonds from J fourth spades and Q. I will play clubs from ... had findhes
It is MP and giving up on 3-3 s does not make sense. However, we might want to come up to Q1095 J opposite AK3 10 8 with the lead in the declarer's hand. When we lead 8 either opponent with 4=4 majors get squeezed. Additional benefit of ...
Deb Dhar's bidding problem: 97542 Q3 J7 KJ73
I did not want to risk a negative score in MP and passed at the table. I would have bid 4 in IMP. Partner was not happy when I put down this dummy. He made 5 and we got a near zero. His hand was A AJT8753 K86 A5 ...
Choosing a line at Matchpoints
My comment was in response to Daniel's comment which he has deleted since then. I like David's line. While West is cashing those clubs East has to make three discards. East holding both K and Q will be squeezed on the play of two additional rounds of hearts ...
Choosing a line at Matchpoints
I think the throw in does not work because declarer's hand gets squeezed if clubs break 5-2. We need four idle cards - one to discard on the fourth heart and 3 on the clubs - we have only three - two spades and one diamond. The contract and the lead looks ...
Slim and slinmer
I think 7 at trick one is better. We might need 3 club tricks if the diamonds do not break. Lead diamond to the 8 - loses only if West has a singleton H in diamond. If 8 wins I will find out the diamond break when I play diamond K ...
Defense against 3NT
I was responding to Daniel's comment and did not see Charles' comment. @Neil: You are correct - leading a diamond will ensure down one with my hand. Additionally, the proper play with my hand would be to cash the fourth heart and run spades - coming down to 9 QT8 opposite ...
