Double Dummy problem 6N
I believe Sathya and Steve are correct. After the entry disturbing spade lead you eventually get East to pitch too many hearts to set up your heart 9 and score it via Steppingstone against West. Reminds me a bit of my 2005 Bridge World submission "A Three's Lament", originally ...
Where do you wish to play at Matchpoints, at IMPs?
Well if the GS is only 63% I wouldn't want to be there.

Hi folks. Thanks for your opinions. I've been trying to calculate how good 7D actually is. Here is what I come up with: let's say you get a club lead cash HA and test diamonds with A and J. If 3-2 you can pull 3Rd round and go ...
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: 2 J952 AKT75 A42
But when partner expects a balanced hand and jumps to 3S with a medium 6 card suit, it doesn't bode well. A 2C rebid with this hand type is better than 2C with 1=4=4=4, IMO. However, if your mechanics allow for 1NT with small stiff (and ...
Where do you wish to play at Matchpoints, at IMPs?
Valid points, the 4H after 4C is probably not wise. But I was suggesting RESPONDER bid 6D over openers 5C instead of 6H, and that would certainly be an option to play, even with hearts agreed.

7NT especially greedy, 6NT perhaps mildly greedy!?
Where do you wish to play at Matchpoints, at IMPs?
In our partnership style the 3D bid showed some extra values (Mike Lawrence , not Larry Cohen) and the 4C was an undiscussed combination of advanced cue for hearts and "keeping all strains open." Opener could have used RKC but he wasn't sure of a trump suit. After responders RKC ...
Can you play 4S better than I did?
"...find an easier game to play in." Oh. You mean like Ken Lebensold was told in "Odd Bridge", Bridge World, 1975.
Toby Curtis's bidding problem: Q7 --- J72 AKJT8754
I don't understand the 2C. Are we playing Precision?
Where do you wish to play at Matchpoints, at IMPs?
Just for the record at the local club, no one was in 6D OR 7D. 6H scored 1430 for 9/11 mps, the only trick being heart queen in Q9xx holding. Spades were 3-3 so the mildly greedy 6NT scored 1440 (10/11) and the very greedy 7NT scored a ...
