Seniors USA 1 Swing Hand
The line I like is... 1. A 2. A 3. ruff (East pitches, so West is ?-8-1-?) 4. A 5. ruff 6. ruff 7. ruff (West follows, so he is 3-8-1-1 or 4-8-1-0) With the K coming down it's easy. Even if the Q isn ...
common game thursday May 18

ATB missed slam in GNT-A
Sorry Benoit, didn't read your comment correctly
ATB another missed slam in GNT-A
Ulf is right on the money. South didn't construct a hand for his partner to hold.
ATB missed slam in GNT-A
I don't like the reasoning behind the 1NT bid; however I do think it's the right value bid, despite being vulnerable and holding three keycards. Absent any gadgets, 2 is heavy but accurate. 3NT is ugly but practical. 4 is fine but 4 is gross ...
