Nikolay Demirev's lead problem: --- AKQJT98765432 --- ---
A very interesting lead to begin 2017 with !! ... because it really is necessary to try and awaken partner to every-single-card in declarer's hand and only the deuce can do it. Necessary. Because when partner shows void of s, declarer will awaken to every-single-card in RHO's hand and ...
Online substitute for dealmaster pro?
18 months ago I bought an Acer Chromebook 15 from Amazon. Same thing happened to me as to Henry. Hardly use my Windows machine at all anymore. Luv the Chromebook experience. Sooner or later they will rewrite Dealmaster Pro for the cloud. There are those of us who do not ...
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: Q63 AKJ82 AK2 A5
North bids 7 with that hand, but bids 6 if he sees the Ace.
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: Q63 AKJ82 AK2 A5
That's a deduction that follows from North realizing that South's 5 bid is a Grand slam try. The need for the Grand slam try implies that a first round control is lacking. If North looks at his hand and sees he has first round control he ...
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: Q63 AKJ82 AK2 A5
(3) 5 P 5 (Pass) ?? North wonders what the 5 Cue-bid means? When he realizes that South is forcing at least a small Slam, he understands that 5 must be a grand Slam try. North looks at his hand which is missing the A ...
Out of the Box
South needed to reevaluate his hand aggressively in the light of North's 2 transfer. A7542 A104 Q83 A2 14 HCP plus 1 short distribution point (for doubleton ) plus 1 1/2 points (for 5 cards headed by Ace in the target major) plus an additional point (for ...
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: Q63 AKJ82 AK2 A5
If LHO Passes 5, pard will figure it out 5NT = pick-a-slam 6 = to Play 6 = 1st round control 6NT = Kx(X) If LHO Doubles 5, the problem is solved
I still don't understand matchpoints
The overbid occurred when North bypassed 3NT at his/her 3rd turn when a jump to 3 was available. Hypothetical. If South holds Q and out, 3NT may be the best spot. You all know that there is no guarantee of a 4-4 heart fit. xxx xxx Qxx xxxx ...
I still don't understand matchpoints
Frances, You think it is important to make this one because you know North overbid with that 4 call. The majority of the field should be in 3 and a -50 vs +140 result is gonna be poor, for sure. So you play the A at trick 3 ...
Four ways to fail
Ditto. The situation demands a suit preference signal to determine who has that missing 4. Pard will "read" the lead of the Q from A,K,Q as a signal I need to know about s. I expect pard to play his lowest spot if he can ruff a ...
