Eric Hamilton's lead problem: J8 K73 A42 JT875
Yes, and if I had chosen the winning one I mght not have posted the problem :) But I am curious - what thought process swayed you to the diamond ace?
How well do you understand restricted choice?
I may not have been clear. The way the show was run, the host did not open a door randomly, he randomly chose whether to open a door that did not conceal the prize or to open no door. Under those conditions, switching when he does choose to open a ...

We blocked them at MPs
A worthy doubleton is one that hasn’t been led
but partner, I only had 2 points, and one of them was worthless!
Only a walrus would think "only two points", but there's something to be said for thinking "nine losers.... count them again... yes, that's NINE". Bidding game is basically rolling the dice on the amount of diamond wastage. Vulnerable at IMPs we don't need 50% and I'd ...
