Need to Cash
"This time 4♠ doubled would have made, but South wasn't sitting for the double." Not quite true, since West is short in trumps when North plays hearts at every opportunity.
Lose the Trials Semifinal with Me, III
I'm afraid that 4H can't be defeated double-dummy on the last hand, even on the lead of the A and switch to a . You win in dummy and carefully ruff a before playing another to dummy. Now, you will know to take a discard on ...
Billy Rosen Hand
My guess is that South had a diamond more and a heart less. Otherwise, why didn't he bid 2 at his second turn?
Obscure suit combination
Craig's line is clearly the "correct" one, since you will make the contract when West has 4 spades and 2 diamonds. It does not matter whether West overruffs the third round of diamonds or not – if he does not overruff, you are planning to discard on the fourth diamond ...
Reisinger, Day 3, Final Session, Bidding/Play Competition
Maybe we should have had Easts hand on board 17? West cannot possibly bid 4 in front of partner having bid 3 in the previous round.
Leading the Singleton
Well, if West is 3=0=7=3, South could be K8 AK10876 4 AQJ9. Now that is a really strong 1 opening, but continuing diamonds after winning the Ace (whether South has cashed the A or not) gives declarer the extra entry he needs to play trumps for ...
Leading the Singleton
K8 AJ98732 4 AQJ You have seen Kit's strong 1 openings before - this hand would surely qualify. Giving declarer a second entry to dummy would mean that East's KQ10 of hearts will be picked up.
Percentage Shift
Third example hand on page 5 is: Kxxx Qx AKQx Qxx. However, if this is South's hand, it makes no difference whether you cash the A or not, since declarer has a spade loser to go with 2 heart losers and the K. Only if South has the J ...
Does Anybody Play This Any More
To all you guys who think this is awful, how would you handle a situation like this: (They are vul) 2 D 4 D p 5 5 6 ? It is clear to everyone that if 6 makes, you will have a very cheap sacrifice ...
Bundesliga jewel: Bridge over broken hearts
Declarer should have led a diamond up after winning the Q. If you duck, he will unblock the clubs, come to hand with the Q and has 10 tricks (2+2+1+5). If you go up with the A and return a heart, he has 2+5+2+1 ...
