Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
ATB for missing this slam
I abstained because I also would have opened 3♥, but if it's partnership style not to do so then N should bid over 4❤ I think, expecting something like this. I do like x better than 3NT though.
How do you play this bid?
Yes " takeout of hearts" is somewhat similar description, but I agree it's more " if you're doubling hearts they're in trouble."
How do you play this bid?
I agree David, if partner has a reasonably good hand. But what if he had a heart stack and not much else because you have the extras?
How do you play this bid?
I would say extras, penalty-ish, especially if 2♦ is nf. Partner can easily have a penalty double of hearts on this auction. Say 3145 or 2146.
All the aces
I don't see anything better than ♦A, A♠, ♠ruff, ♥K pitcher ♠,♣A, ♠ruff,♣, which seems only to lose with clubs 1-4 or 0-5. Or a major (71).Or is it better to return to hand with a ♥ruff than a second ♣?
Bad Timing
♦A-Q, pitch ♠ if not covered,♦ ruff, ♠A, cross ruff ♠ and ♣ to four card ending. If ♦Q is covered, you have to return to hand with ♠A, pitch ♠ on ♦J and crossruff again
Bad Timing
Maybe a clue from " what's the best lead"? I think you can make if rho is something like ♠KQJx ♥- ♦xxxx ♣AKJTx, which might qualify for "aggressive but not insane". If you come down to ♥QT ♣xx and ♥Ax ♦xx with the lead in hand you make, but I think ...
what do you call this play?
Declarer missed a countermeasure which would have foiled the carpet coup. After a H to the K, he should have ruffed the 10C felling E queen (again).
What is your favourite bridge hand? (At the table)
Oops, yes was 1075.
What is your favourite bridge hand? (At the table)
My favorite was AQxxxx AKQx Ax A. Vul vs not, it went 3H on my left, and pard bid 4D. I bid 7NT and dummy had x - KJTxxxxx KQJTx. RHO had 4234 with SK and was squeezed, a spade lead would have beaten it.
