Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
[If it's so absolutely blatantly clear from the AI that partner has the ♦A and declarer is void, why not double?] Why not double, if you believe partner has the A, based on the AI? First, because getting +200 or more, when the rest of the room is making ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
I'm also not sure that the BIT suggests a diamond lead, or even suggests that partner holds an ace, except that the auction itself is telling us that he does. While it's not possible on this particular auction (after East showed the Q), wouldn't you expect partner ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Michael, you said, "There is no auction to 7N after a KC auction that, on the surface, "strongly suggests" an ace is missing." But this was NOT an ordinary auction to 7NT. The limited hand assumed captaincy, and used RKC ONLY AFTER North showed a D card with the double ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Wow, Ray! I pointed out an important consideration in the bidding, one which I believe most, if not all, experts would consider - one which should be factored into the discussion of what, if anything, is a LA on the AI. I said nothing about being clever, I did not brag ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Richard, if that were the issue, and their side possessed all the key cards, why not bid 5NT, letting partner know about all the keys, and see if he can count 13 tricks without a ruff? Maybe he has extra spade length, and doesn't need the long heart. Maybe ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
I would like to emphasize a key point in this decision, which I have not yet seen articulated explicitly, even though it has been suggested implicitly by many people. EW are world-class players. They also know that the game is MP, not IMPs. So if West could count 13 tricks ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Timo, you said, "I am sure like all of us, you made bad leads, particularly at the table when it is not presented you as a lead problem by someone." You use that to justify considering other leads as LA on the AI in this scenario. Let me start by ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Alvin, you stated, "No Ai (sic) may presently be considered along with the UI". That is clearly not correct. The role that the AI plays in determining the outcome falls under 3. Was there a logical alternative to the action taken by the player? If the AI is such that ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
You said, Phyllis, "I'm allowed to think it was obvious that W was void in diamonds". If you think it is obvious (and I agree that it is), then the diamond lead MUST be allowed to stand, and the result of 7NT -2 is correct. Remember, East has denied ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
I think the fact that the limited hand chose to bid blackwood, not directly over the 4 cuebid, but only after partner's pass of the 4X denied a first-round control, is crucial in the analysis. As others have said, normally players at this level would not bid ...
