Sven Pride's bidding problem: AKQJ5 6 KQ8 AKJ7
Partner had Txx Jxxxx xx xxx. Those who bid 3S or 3D will probably end up in 4S. Everyone else will end up at whatever they bid after Doubling.
Mark Chen's bidding problem: KQJT AKQJ2 A 654
LOL, Partner had xxxxx x xxxx AQx. I wanted to bid 3D to show a really, really good spade raise but it was shaky ground with my Partner, so I decided to bid 4S and then it went all pass. We missed the good slam, but fortunately for us the ...
Mark Chen's lead problem: 87 AJ95432 KJ9 7
Partner had Kxxx x AQTx KQ65 Dummy had 2 KQTx 987654 Tx Declarer had AQJT98 x AJ986x I led my stiff club, which could have worked if Declarer had something like AKxxxxx x x KQJx. However on this hand, it helped Declarer and the best the Defense can do ...
Play Problem - 3NT at matchpoints
to K, to Q looks like the best line to me also.
Mark Chen's bidding problem: AK5 Q953 J52 AKJ
Like most in the poll, I chose to Double also. On this hand, the 3NT bidders will make Partner's life easy, as Partner's hand was QJxx/JTx/Axxx/xx. After my Double, he had to guess what to do next.
Interesting Discard Situation
Declarer had 9764 T8 K9753 AQ, so this was my only chance to signal to Partner that he needs to win his A on the first or second round and lay down his K. I chose to play the T. The poll results are very interesting and I can understand ...
Interesting Discard Situation
Thanks, I did not know about the hand diagram generator. That is much better!
Mike Gill's bidding problem: --- AQ9754 A8732 AK
I don't know what 4 is here. I guess it depends if you treat the 2 opening like a 1 opening or a 2 opening. I can see merits for either method, although my inclination is to lean towards treating it like a 1 ...
Mark Chen's bidding problem: T6 AKJ762 K7 KQ3
Partner had 4 T A643 A987542. LHO had QJ9732 Q843 QJ5 -. RHO had AK85 95 T982 JT6. With careful play, the hand makes 6C. With best defense, the hand only makes 3H. I was interested to see if people: A) Give up on hearts and support clubs B) Bid ...
Stayman... or Not?
Thanks all for your insightful comments, especially Leonard and Reid for sharing the Garbage Stayman Simulation analysis. Very interesting stuff! I held this hand when playing with Brad and chose to do Drop Dead Stayman based on experience and a hunch (and I like to gamble!). It will be nice ...
