Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Looking for pair for Memphis -- Vanderbilt or 0-10K KO
We have found teammates. Thanks to all who expressed an interest.
Is it my choice?
South knows that North might have this hand. If South wanted North's opinion, there were ways to ask for it (3 of a red suit should be a game try once an 8+ card spade fit is established). 3 is purely competitive.
You Be the Judge. Common Game 2/12/19 board 23
"Known mountain" is where we disagree. Sure, we can see that's what West had in mind, but it might just be asking too much of East to figure this out at the table. Consider that if West "didn't like the spade quality for 3 and didn't ...
You Be the Judge. Common Game 2/12/19 board 23
Since we agree that 3 would have been a much better bid than 2, the question for me becomes what hand is consistent with West's actual auction. Since I can't think of a hand that I would bid that way, I have more sympathy than you ...

Something is not adding up here. The trick-taking expectation of the finesse is clearly 12.0 (50% of 13 and 50% of 11). If the calculations above are accurate, the expectation of the combination play is 11.85, so the conclusion is sound (assuming, if MPs, that the entire field ...
10 missing K slam percentage
I haven't done all the math, but I'm pretty confident that the Ace is the percentage play at IMPs. At MPs, I have to judge what % of the field will be in slam. The fewer pairs that I judge will be there, the more I would tend toward ...
1NT defence
Win the Ace, then cash the King. This unusual order of plays should serve as a request for partner to unblock the ten.
