A Haunting Combination
I took it to be "how do I maximize the expected number of tricks?"
A Haunting Combination
Run the Jack. If it is covered, win and either cash the second honor or finesse the 9. If it loses (or holds) then cash both top honors.
Split Screen when commenting
Paul, As a work-around, you could copy the web address and paste it in another tab or window. Many computers will allow you to drag the tab to the desktop as a separate window.
Respect the post
In addition, there are many occasions on which I know the hand from having played it the day before. I may comment on the action I took, but don't believe I should vote.
Setting the record straight: the French pair did it
Bernie, Juan Ramirez. Great guy. I always wondered how many of his always-interesting stories were true. Hms
Setting the record straight: the French pair did it
Magnus, Fascinating. I can see from your brief bio that Borel influenced your personal life as well as your mathematical one (assuming some difference between the two). Hms
Anything Suspicious Here?
In today's common game: One of the legitimately top players (well over 10000 MPs) passed the East hand in tempo. Afterwards, he said he was planning out the auction and looked down to see that he had passed. Of course, it never occurred ...
Finesse or drop
-170 was average for us as well. One person in game (making) and one person in 3 (down 1--???). All the rest were in part scores and presumably played for the drop. None of the South players would have made any calculations.
Zero or Top
Gregory, Thanks. I think I will vote for "other": not the best agreement. hms
Zero or Top
Do I have an agreement about 2? Natural? Scrambling?
