Favorite Bridge Memory
Unkowningly being off 2 Aces in a Grand Slam and yet still making it. Various psyches. Finally sacrificing at the 7-level effectively.

Douglas Smix's bidding problem: 6 873 AT765 KJ95
Well the East/West hand a big minor fit that would have played better and I as West didn't think to seek that fit after 4X was passed with what I hoped had to be a tolerance. Then Again I could have had a lot longer s or ...
Help us resolve the meaning of this 2nd Double!
The intention was to make my seat position ambiguous (if I was there at all) as I certainly do not want to be yessed. I simply wish to hear people's unbiased thoughts on why the bid ought to emphatically be one way and not another. I'm not sure ...

I could have been more explicit. My intention was on the opening lead of a Jack, what percent chance is this lead a doubleton (JT or Jx).
Chances a Jack lead is from a Doubleton (in general)
My question concerned the odds on balance and thus purely theoretical, yes. I’ve come to the conclusion that the actual hand that prompted the discussion was well under a 20% chance so I no longer find it worthy of being shown – sorry. Yes I do feel there would be ...
Chances a Jack lead is from a Doubleton (in general)
I whole-heartedly agree with your 1st paragraph and it was the crux of my belief the general odds were low, but my table-mates appear to have influenced my guesstimate or else I would have included a much lower range. The hand boiled down to determining if I led partner's ...
