Jon Green's bidding problem: J97 J875 964 J94
We play direct bids as natural. To me it seems best to wait since the opponents might have been running themselves. Of course as things went you're in more danger now because they have clarified that it's their hand, but it's worth the risk I think.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: 9743 KQ7 98 AJ65
2. If it goes all pass we will be okay IMO. I would have bid Drury if the J was a small one or if the Q was the jack but I don't have a lot of extras. He could have bid 4 directly if he was ...
Jon Green's lead problem: QT754 K87 JT87 9
I do think it's better at matchpoints also. Most of the time you're getting a heart trick before they can get 12 tricks, so there is no worry about giving away an overtrick. In that case it must be right to give yourself the best chance for a ...
Jon Green's lead problem: QT754 K87 JT87 9
The spade lead was the winner on the actual hand. Declarer had 3 top diamonds, 4 top clubs, the ace of spades and was able to establish 4 heart winners after losing a finesse to the king. I think this is a predictable outcome. Sometimes passive defense might prevail but ...
Postmortem Analysis of March 2020 Bridge World MSC Contest Results
The panelists voting on the lead problem is due to the known length on your left. If you are leading hearts in the hope of establishing winners in the suit your best chance is to catch honor doubleton in partner's hand. If you are lucky enough to find that ...
Leonard Helfgott's lead problem: KJTx KQx QJT JTx
Sure, that is a possible scenario, but it's very specific isn't it? You could construct hands where leading any suit would be best.
Leonard Helfgott's lead problem: KJTx KQx QJT JTx
I'd still lead the diamond. Blowing a spade trick could be the route to -90 vs +100. If the contract is in the balance there should be time to shift to spades later when it's right. I do have entries. We will win a diamond trick at some ...
Leonard Helfgott's lead problem: KJTx KQx QJT JTx
Sure the diamond can easily cost some tempo. It did on the actual hand as the diamonds were 4333 with declarer holding 4. Heart and club leads have the same sort of tempo risk and might also lose materially. A spade lead is less risky as to tempo but very ...
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: 97532 Q4 T AQJ97
Difficult. Double, 2 or 2 are all possibilities and any of those could turn out to be best.
Leonard Helfgott's lead problem: KJTx KQx QJT JTx
Least dangerous. As I recall it wasn't best on this hand, though.
