Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Discarding to deceive
I also wonder whether a program would cash A after the A, then take the heart finesse, correctly reasoning that it costs nothing to check for a singleton K.
Nick Hughes's lead problem: KT654 962 AJ9 J4
9 lead was not a success N QT843 W J E AK75 S 962 How do I post the complete layout in a poll?
Discarding to deceive

Poor overcall leads to poor game
Okay, seems clear by the votes a heart is right. I still think it's close. Playing 5 looks like it needs hearts to break, plus the club finesse. Playing 7 needs Kxx exactly onside. In practice a spade is the winning play. Opener had Axxxx A ...
