Hitchhiker revisited
Makes life very easy for the defenders..
Filippos Karamanlis's bidding problem: Q3 T T6543 AQ862
North had AKQxx of diamonds (updated)
Filippos Karamanlis's bidding problem: Q3 T T6543 AQ862
Passing seems very strange. If one sequence is forcing this is it. Partner made a grand slam try and we leave them playing 6H undoubled red vs white?? For the history partner had AKJxxx -- AKQxx xx, so 6Spades by South (because west is void in diamonds) and 7D is always ...
What you think is the best agreement for this sequence?
You know my opinion, S+D for me should be the agreement. But I used to prefer the slam try with spades!
Deep Finesse Can't Make It, But You Can
Better to eliminate diamonds and play spade to the king. Ace offside will duck often
Filippos Karamanlis's bidding problem: A KQ2 65432 KJT9
The hand opposite was Jxxxxx A x Qxxxx
Which card do you play and why?
Partner had the A of Diamond so club continuation was the winning defense. I am surprised by the fact that the majority is asking for a spade switch when in face it should discourage it - the most promising defense seems to be trying to over ruff the third club.
Which card do you play and why?
To AJ: Spade K and Diamond K not enough to beat it. Declarer can cash Diamond ace and discard whatever he needs (depending on the continuation) in the hearts
Which card do you play and why?
If you think about it partner cannon have AKQ of clubs and both an honour in spades AND in diamonds. So asking for a spade doesn't make much sense.
