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.
Which line to take
That depends on how you came by the information. If your 2NT bid was explained by your partner and you had forgotten, then you aren't entitled to the information. If you intentionally violated the system (maybe partner's declarer play has been or often is sub par), then you ...
Which line to take
Run diamonds pitching a club, then ace, king of hearts. If no heart honor falls finesse spades. This succeeds if a heart honor falls, the spade finesse wins or the spade jack falls. It also caters to West falling for our psyche (or misbid) and playing a second spade after ...
3 level matchpoint decision
With 7=2=2=2 double is definitely not anywhere on my radar screen, Bob. It doesn't show this hand.
3 level matchpoint decision
Your nightmare scenario for a light 2 bid won't occur all that often. The condition only exists when partner has the queen and dummy has an honor. If that's an overriding consideration we'll never preempt without a stray side queen or two since we risk selling ...
