Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
ruff&sluff
When declarer can't make a useful pitch from either hand. Sometimes declarer can't afford to ruff in either hand (I.e., trumps are 4-1).
Quick question on Texas.
Scott, Not very good...hmmm...not what Art told me. Anyway, if I redoubled, I would have a 5-card suit and be willing to play 4 of whatever suit partner bid. Hms
Vanderbilt Fantasy
Greg, I somehow ended up with an incomplete bracket. I think in part because of some of the issues Alan mentioned. There are only a few late picks that remain to be made. Is it reasonable to ask you to fill those in with the higher seeds? Thanks, Hms Edit ...
Best Hand Held After Partner Opens
March 9, 2017, Board 19, Common Game. Partner opened 1 and I held AQJ9 3 AQ95 AKJT. You could make 6 of anything. We ended in 6.
Win Sartaj Hans' Money!
Barry, As I said up thread : Small to the Jack. If it loses to the Queen, then finesse the 9. If the Jack loses to the Ace, cash the King and then lead toward the 9. March 3 Send the money. Hms

Small to the Jack. If it loses to the Queen, then finesse the 9. If the Jack loses to the Ace, cash the King and then lead toward the 9.
UI Ruling Question
John, I know all of the participants in this drama. North and South have a detailed System Card as well as extensive notes. Chris himself is as straightforward a person as you will ever meet. I take his comments at face value. Disclosure: I know North and South very well ...
Where do you wish to play at Matchpoints, at IMPs?
I abstained because I held the West hand. My RHO opened 3, after which we had a disasterous sequence to a making slam. We did not deserve our top.
Why do these guys cheat?
Lars, At my house, the answer to that kind of question is always "early upbringing". ;-) Howard
