What went wrong?
Whatever one may think of the various calls, 3 creates a game force. South must not pass 3.
Guard your wealth
Very nice. I didn't see the guard squeeze. I had eliminated the spade suit as a threat in a squeeze position, since it was a non-entry suit which both defenders guarded. Normally such a suit can never operate as part of a double or compound squeeze with proper defense ...
Perhaps some seniors feel the opposite. They might prefer more boards per session, wanting to play as many deals as possible while they still can.
Guard your wealth
Declarer's most likely hand appears to be: -- KQJxxxx Axxx AQ. If he has that you will be squeezed, but declarer will take the club finesse as he will count you for 3 clubs and partner for 4 clubs. Of course if declarer has 3 diamonds and 3 clubs ...
Bid, Play, Analysis-not so mundane
Since the defenders don't know you have a 9-card fit, the false-carding aspects are a lot different. For example, if North has 10x he can't safely falsecard with the 10 for fear that you have K9xx and will choose to go up ace and finesse. Also, I would ...
Just another claim
I couldn't imagine accepting any claim without seeing declarer's hand unless I already knew that he had the rest of the tricks. It would make no difference who the declarer is. Anyway, I don't think declarer miscounted his tricks. I think he miscounted your tricks. He just ...
ATB: 3N-3
If North's 7 of hearts were the 10 of hearts and N-S had stopped in 3, you would be looking for blame for missing the cold 3NT contract.
6C play problem
Andy's line fails when West has Qxx of clubs and a doubleton diamond even when the king of spades is onside, since West ruffs the king of diamonds and we can't get to dummy for the spade finesse without squandering dummy's last trump. The 3-0 club split ...
6C play problem
If you start with the king of clubs and get the bad news, you don't win with Qxx of diamonds. You still get Q10 doubleton somewhere. You also get Q8 doubleton in the West hand, since in theory West could play 8, Q from Q108 or Q108x and no ...
6C play problem
Yes. Corrected.
