about me

Having my bid, putting down a good dummy, making partner's life easy, getting a plus score. Not that concerned about going +170.

Favorite Conventions
None, not because they can't be fun but because they lose IMPS / match-points, particularly in partnerships that practice less than 10-20 hours a week together.

John Newman's bidding problem: AQJ9752 84 K4 J7
I wouldn't think about bidding on this hand. 7240 I would probably rip, 7141 probably would still pass. You have approximately 1 trick in your hand, that should be more than enough to defeat it. If bidding game was 100% going to make, you would do it. If it ...
John Newman's bidding problem: T43 A72 AJ52 K73
expected partner to be 4 hearts and 4+ diamonds with 11 points for the 3D bid. What would your double in the live seat of 3S have been? I think it would've been takeout, eyeing 3NT or otherwise willing to play in 4D. I think partner just wants to ...
More Memphis Mishappenings
Don't like this auction at all. 1. what should 3S have meant in their methods. In light of that meaning, did north bid their hand reasonably? Especially the 6D bid, was there any alternative at all to making a non-existent bid that can arguably have been made in an ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AK6 A63 AQ97532 ---
I hope partner doesn't also decide that a 4-3 fit on this hand is fine, or else it may be a 3-3 fit (and perhaps be the best spot anyway like in the later chapters of some of the T. Reese books).
Liam Milne's lead problem: KQT93 T7642 3 52
What worked on the day is only relevant to the extent that it sheds light on the winning long term card. I wouldn't be surprised at all if K is correct, even though I voted for the singleton.
Trick Two Pressure
Playing a trump might also be good
Trick Two Pressure
First step is probably to figure out the club layout. Missing clubs are QJ93, and the first trick went A 6 7 5. If partner has the 3, what is their possible holding? In terms of 3 card holdings, probably the only one is J73. As for 4 card holdings ...
Eight ever, nine never? A new situation
Yea I'm definitely finessing. In summary my opinion is - its 50/50, except east with 98 might make an error, say 20% of the time, and play the 9. Therefore, always play for the finesse, be right 50/50, except when you see the 9 played on the first ...
Eight ever, nine never? A new situation
If partner has 5 or 6 in the suit that was led, and you only have 2, I guess playing you for longer trumps makes sense. Also, if you did have doubleton in partner's and singleton in declarer's (therefore 10 cards in the other 2 suits) there may ...
Eight ever, nine never? A new situation
What was the tempo at the table like? If west did start with Q10, then east should probably play the 8 from 89 on the first round (as was the card played in the description), because if east played the 9 it would mean that IF west started with the ...
