The Club's Coffee-Housing
Yu, I see what you are saying but I think the analogy is flawed. It is illegal to signal to your partner what to lead by eg how you place your pen on the table and so on. And that is the thing that the cheats are doing. As a ...
The Club's Coffee-Housing
I think you shouldn’t do anything which appears identical to what a cheat might do, because then a cheat might say they were merely doing what you were doing and not cheating. If you look at a defender in a way which would allow you to see where they ...
The Club's Coffee-Housing
I think the implication is that allowing declarer to take advantage of hesitations etc, but not allowing defenders to fake a hesitation adds an asymmetry and is therefore “unfair” in some sense. If you want to know where a queen is, work it out based on counting points, shape etc ...
Would you like to be in slam? If yes, what is your auction?
Just because South might be weak is no reason to jump to 5. If you make a cue bid, South can always return to 4 if he is weak.
Jeff Reubens Math Question
I don’t know whether it helps to contrast this with the situation where the 2 and A are exchanged. You win the opening lead in dummy, discarding J from hand while East discards as well. Now you lead a and two things can happen - west can follow so ...
Jeff Reubens Math Question
You need to take restricted choice into account. In the cases where East does not have the king, he has a choice of which two cards to discard at tricks 11 and 12; with the King he has no choice as to which cards to discard. This increases the chance ...
The demise of "whether"
I suspect the latter is easier to calculate than the former.
Jeff Reubens Math Question
You talk about east discarding 4 and 3, but half the time he can’t do that as West holds one of those cards. If you knew west’s 13 card was a then the odds would indeed be 6/7.
The demise of "whether"
My problem with phrase “logical alternatives” is with the word “logical”. If option A is better, in your opinion than option B, then it would be illogical of you to choose option B.

Suppose east shows out on 3rd ?
