Richard Granville's lead problem: K92 A7 KJT5 J932
A club can give up a trick even if your partner holds the ace, king or queen, not safer than a diamond lead.
A Beautiful Hand
I have the counter experience that these doubles are 100% bluff. {Last double was by Joe Godefrin, (1)-P-(1)-3NT-(X) when I held balanced A, A, AKJTXXX} That looks like evidence to me. Maybe next time I will sit...
A Beautiful Hand
You were looking in the right place at the WSOP poker game. "Factor in the likelihood of West's club holdings" and what he would do with each--That's the poker aspect, betting/guessing based on experience/logic. (Other calcs without the poker aspect are in favor of passing.) I ...
Leonard Hall's bidding problem: QT43 JT96 AT92 K
Pass, but surprised by the ~90% vote. A little concerned with the possibility that nine tricks would be unavailable, but very concerned that bidding 2 would ensure we did not receive a likely favorable lead. And this hand is one of the worst where a bid over 2 ...
ATB - duplication
"Rustlewood" is the local name for FIKC, perpetrated by Jim Russell in the wild west days, when partner was extremely likely to have a control in the unbid suit. If this convention were not available, South is an easy target for blame. 4 here is last train by most ...
Assess the blame (15)
Identifying the singleton over 3 seems the best agreement, so for me 3 & 4 would be simple natural fragments with shortness in the unbid. Without a specific agreement, 3 would be a cuebid (and overbid), responsible for setting off the following disastrous sequence, normal up-the-line, 1st ...
Petter Bengtsson's bidding problem: 8 2 T8 KQJT97532
Not close, don't like to leave them room to get in with 4 or 4. I am not waiting for a longer suit to bid 5.
Richard Granville's lead problem: K92 A7 KJT5 J932
J will be a winner opposite the ace or queen. Neither black suit is as good. A may lose a tempo, and the right shift still may not be obvious.
Eric Leong's bidding problem: 8 Q42 AKQT95 J75
I have "a hunch" about the best trump suit:) ...edited between quotation marks
Eric Leong's bidding problem: 8 Q42 AKQT95 J75
I should have said 2nd-round control, usually a singleton.
