David Caprera's bidding problem: AT83 T72 AK K743
I like 2 here, and don't like passing, even though no one will believe me when I say a red card was in with my clubs. I'm sticking to my story. I won't mention the name of the guy who bid 2 here on AKX ...
Ercan Cem's bidding problem: AT2 9765432 2 QJ
Partner has 3card hearts, AK. Twelve tricks may well be there opposite 3 keycards. Never going to defend 4 in any case. (It just doesnt feel like South has defensive values.)
Online Issue #1 Last Hand
Of course if you never play the last hand, you will be playing forever...
Online Issue #1 Last Hand
Reminds me somehow of an old chestnut from superstitious money bridge players: "Never play the last hand!"
Richard Granville's lead problem: 65 T8742 A4 J763
When I used to lead the A with this hand-type it never worked, but it does seem to work against me...bad karma or just paranoia?
Jack Spear's lead problem: J2 Q2 A432 KJ432
I thought if I posted this, many would place partner with 6card diamonds and dummy with a singleton, so lead a small diamond to get a club through. Sort of a classic hand, where an original black suit lead gives declarers ten tricks (lots of -170's), otherwise the endplay ...
Doubling a splinter
I play like Steve--One may be able to bid a higher suit on some auctions. I also play these "lowdown doubles" vs opponent's unusual jumps to slam eg (1)-P-(6), giving pard a little edge that I might have doubled if the lead of the lowest ...
David Caprera's bidding problem: 83 K972 K865 Q87
Agree with Steve that on BBO short explanations are understandable. A more complete explanation of the treatment would have been preferable, but I would not consider persuing this, a waste of everyone's time. The double was alerted.
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: AKT852 A6 K AT52
The 1 opening decreases the likelihood of partner bidding 1NT to keep the bidding open over 1.
Yehudit Hasin's bidding problem: AKTx Kxx QTx Kxx
The cat knows...
