UI in club games?
I'm skeptical of time estimates. Did both sides agree to these number? Yet another problem with the stop card is the lack of understanding of how long to leave it out and how long to wait after it's returned and whether the latter depends on the former. I ...
Can you play 4S better than I did?
The club signal not withstanding, are we sure that RHO has the K? That would make for the world's strongest preemptive raise (particularly if it includes a singleton spade as those playing West for Q suggest). The play suggests yes, the bidding no. I generally trust the play inferences ...
David Libchaber's bidding problem: QJT8742 QJ3 J32 ---
Guessing that we are missing a pass and that we are responder.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: 7 43 AKQ87643 KQ
There is a definite need.
How to Proceed? You be the Judge
Without regard to the rest of declarer's play, the J is higher than the T.
How do you bring this slam home?
At MPs, i can't imagine not trying for an overtrick and finessing after testing trumps playing for 4-2 diamonds and/or king onside. As an aside, i think most would play 4N here as regressive not RKC (what suit is trumps?). What does opener do with no fit ...
Balancing act for the NT opener
For those who are interested in at the table results, 3 was the winner. Dummy had their own close decision over 3 with Qxx xxxx Ax Txxx and enough good things happen on the layout to take 9 tricks on most lines (from our side, not so from ...
Given the double dummy analysis
DD analysis suggests K is offside as well. Thus i can survive unless clubs are 4-0 (given OP conditions) by pitching on A. Win K continuation. 3 rounds of clubs, A, run trumps to squeeze RHO in reds. If RHO were void in diamonds, LHO could give ruff --- don ...
Niko Roemer's bidding problem: KT7432 K43 J76 2
-940 is bad enough, don't need to make it -1440 (or -xx00).
Whats best now
I don't see how covering the T is difficult at all. This loses to ATx (less likely AJTx) only (provided partner is signaling honestly); and what declarer would start the T from that holding? Might the T catch South napping? Sure, but the current position is an actual problem.
