Barry Rigal's bidding problem: AQJ4 86 75 AK642
Assuming the most common agreement of double = 4/4 majors (exactly), we are basically raising partner's 1 response. It looks borderline between 2 and 3. I'm falling on the side of 2 because we have an additional bid available, 1, which we might ...
In the Well: Adam and Zach Grossack
Hey dudes. Nice to see you in the well! Psychology (and emotions etc.) plays a big part in this game. What do you guys feel you do well in this area? Where do you feel you still have work to do? Hope to see you in the USA again sooner ...
An Unusual Daily-Double Double from Lyon
I'm thrilled that the IBPA has seen fit to honour Sartaj Hans for his book and Nabil Edgtton for best junior deal of the year. If you haven't read Battling the Best yet, now's the time. It's a great read with something for everyone. You won ...
If you play professionally
I love bridge enough to have made it my living. Why would I not play for fun, as well as for a crust? I played professionally for part of the NABC in Toronto and had a bunch of work lined up in Sydney for when I got back. In between ...

Picking a Winner
Not wrong at all. You are right that East could have played K at trick one which would certainly have woken West up.
Picking a Winner
Having thought a bit more about this, I'm inclined to agree and have updated the article accordingly. The win cases for ducking are pretty easy to spot, and I'm not sure there are many loss cases at all if the defence plays well. Good eye.
Picking a Winner
Well, I do think West should have switched. East's underlead of the diamond is the clue. This layout is very findable given that Q with declarer makes 4 likely cold. I think this hand is very interesting from a defensive point of view as well. It's often ...
Picking a Winner
Thanks Peter. I think I agree with you.
Best books for defensive carding agreements?
It is truly one of the best books on defence - and bridge in general. I really love this book! Good luck Johnno
