Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What am I Asking
I don't see what all the fuss is about. Partner bid 3NT when we might be xxxx xxx xx xxxx. He bid 5S when we confessed to xxxxx xxxxx x xx. He now expects us to use our judgement - is our hand good in context? A major Q or ...
I AM SO Embarrassed!
Defending a part score on the last board of a knockout-match, I noticed to my amusement I held the lowest two remaining cards in all 3 side suits. "There's mathematically no way my plays make any difference now," I thought. So I switched off and played my last 6 ...
Angels and demonstrations
When you decided not to play a penalty double of a strong NT, you should have wondered what to do with a good hand. If they're vulnerable, taking them off in 100s may well be best. If they're nonvul, it may not be clear what to do, but ...
Angels and demonstrations
I'm usually sympathetic to "The pause doesn't necessarily promise suitable values" arguments, but in this case, it eliminates too many of the hands where bidding is -200 on a good day. "Hogwash" is a bit strong, but "to be discounted" (I bet you know a good Latin word ...
Angels and demonstrations
Misprint - I assume partner PASSES after appreciable thought.
Wesley May's bidding problem: --- AQ943 T8 T97654
Lucky you! I'll bid 3 which implies a minor and suggests the lead.
James Huntington's bidding problem: --- AQJ43 KJ KQ9842
Partner didn't double 1 so he has minor length. I shall bid 4NT to offer him both.
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: A6 K52 KT92 KQ82
But he can't see the minor kings. Having used Blackwood it is hard for him to suggest 6NT without implying all the key cards. Can anyone suggest a plausible hand for him where we should pass 6?
Simon Cope's lead problem: 9842 Q63 74 QT72
I had a rush of blood to my head and led Q. On reflection, my 9 may prove useful and there was no need to panic, but it's too late. 3 looks normal.
Ulrich Voigt's bidding problem: T9653 T2 --- AJ8532
Ah, sorry I should have guessed.
