Eric Leong's bidding problem: --- AQJ87 AKT5 KQJ8
Hi Richard, I like to use 3 as a hedge over 3. That way opener can bid 3 with a concentration of values in spades, 3 with honour-doubleton and 3NT with a strong desire to play there (a strong diamond stopper with either three or four ...
Eric Leong's bidding problem: QJT86 K QJ4 A963
I would not have bid 3NT. I prefer 3 with stiff K given how strong our diamonds are and how anti-positional our clubs are.
Thomas Berg's bidding problem: A52 84 AQJ4 J987
5542 means short club opening.
Eric Leong's bidding problem: --- AQJ87 AKT5 KQJ8
I would have bid 3 rather than 3. It gives partner more space which makes his rebid more likely to be an accurate description. I will not offer a grand slam invitation. I think it is very unlikely that partner holds the heart king. There will be a ...
No finesse, but plenty of class
Looks like at least four people are going down if those likes are anything to go by! This contract is ice cold as long as the heart Ace and the spade Ace King stand up. Trick 4: cash Heart Ace Tricks 5 & 6: cash Spade Ace-King Now go about your ...
No finesse, but plenty of class
Too fast for me, Robert :)
Leigh Matheson's bidding problem: T AJT974 J765 A5
2 is completely clear to me. If you switched the spades and hearts to make this a 1 opening, then I would bid 2. But with us holding hearts, the opponents have a nine card spade fit. Our chances of hitting a diamond fit have gone up ...
Play problem
Kieran's last point is exactly why I (and Tom, I'm guessing) think West should not be concerned about breaking the diamond suit with AJxxx, for example. The only shape where North holds fewer than 5 is 1444. South could have shown a control in diamonds but chose ...
Play problem
Would you not lead the diamond Ace holding a five card diamond suit? I would do it in a flash to try to give partner a ruff. The 1 opener will likely have five and his partner bypassed showing a control in the suit. Similarly, if you held a ...
Play problem
If East has the A and J1098, he absolutely would have doubled. He knows the diamond is cashing and he needs to get the lead. I think it is much more likely that West has the diamond Ace with the heart void, in which case he is more likely to ...
