If East hadn't played the king of hearts you certainly would have played him for the king of clubs, taking your 5 to 2 odds. It is only because you know East started with the king of hearts that it might be right to play West for Kx of ...
How should these hands be bid playing 2/1 GF?
Sure, 4NT could go down on a bad day if partner has a mis-fitting minimum and things lie badly. It is all a matter of risk vs. reward. You must ask yourself the following question: If I bid 4, which is more likely: Getting to 4NT down 1 (or ...
How should these hands be bid playing 2/1 GF?
South's pass of 3NT is a joke. Even if North has a mis-fitting minimum, 4NT figures to be safe. After South properly bids 4, North is easily worth a slam try with 4 (or 4 if that would clearly be a slam try -- for me it ...
Declarer thoughts
There is no clue from West's defense. West has a routine heart continuation after East encourages, since it is inconceivable that East would encourage holding 5 hearts and the king of spades, the only layout where a heart continuation can be wrong. There is some clue from the bidding ...
Which Slam Is Best
Yes, 5NT would be pick a slam, as it always is if not part of the king ask structure. We never play any kind of third round control asks after bidding RKC. It is an interesting idea, and certainly should have been taken into consideration. If partner has 4 diamonds ...
Which Slam Is Best
The RKC bidder would be asking for kings without all the key cards only if he felt a superior 6NT contract might be reached if responder has a critical king. The responder would be bidding 6NT only if he had so much stuff that he judged there is a grand ...
Plan the play
If West has a stiff spade and AK doubleton of clubs, he definitely would have cashed the AK of clubs and gotten a signal from his partner what to do next. This would make far more sense than leading a singleton spade.
Plan the play
I don't see any chance if West has led from K107(x) or from a doubleton, so I'll assume he has a stiff spade. He also needs AK of clubs for there to be a chance. So, I'll play him for 7 xxx KJ1098x AKx. I will ...
Which is more likely for them to balance?
I'm not exactly sure how to answer this question. If partner is going to be passing your 2m rebid then obviously the opponents are more likely to enter than if you pass 1NT, both because there are two of them who can act and they know from your 2m ...
Forcing or not
Our rule is that we don't make correctional bids when partner has rebid a suit at the 3-level.
