Drew Casen's lead problem: Q962 AQ5 K54 T95
YOU nailed it, Jon !
Compound Squeeze ?
Thanks, Kit. I KNEW you would know what to name it.
Compound Squeeze ?
Someone ask Rod or Meckles or Rosenberg. I am sure they will know what to call it.
Compound Squeeze ?
Thanks. I knew for sure that a spade lead would ruin it for me. To be honest with you, I wasn't sure if a heart lead would.
Drew Casen's bidding problem: AJT AQ9764 --- KJ75
Ok, David, lemme give it to straight. I bid 6NT at the table over 5D, and partner had something about what I expected, so I made it: KQxxx,x,AKQJx,xx. However, I think I should only bid 5, PROMISING A CLUB CONTROL, and INVITING slam. I would need ...
Drew Casen's bidding problem: AJT AQ9764 --- KJ75

Drew Casen's bidding problem: AJT AQ9764 --- KJ75

Drew Casen's bidding problem: AJT AQ9764 --- KJ75
Surely partner has more than the example hand you have suggested to bid past 4. Since he is known to have no club control by his failure to bid 4N or 5, , he will NEVER bid over 5 no matter what his hand is.
Drew Casen's bidding problem: AJT AQ9764 --- KJ75
Good point, but isn't it a certainly that partner has no club control ?

If you bid 3H, how will you show REAL spade support later ?
