Michael Rosenberg's lead problem: 632 A953 QJ72 T9
Fair enough! Thanks.
Michael Rosenberg's lead problem: 632 A953 QJ72 T9
I may have written poorly, for which I apologize. My point was that we are more likely to lead a from the Q than (a) cashing A on the go, or, much worse, (b) underleading it at trick 1. When we select a trump, a strong declarer may ...
One more (of so many) undiscussed doubles
I presumed that opener was balanced and (sub) minimum to pass out 1, so one of the usual criteria for removing partner's penalty proposal, a void in their suit, is now impossible. A fair answer to your question involves what opener would have done with, say, a 4 ...

Michael Rosenberg's bidding problem: 9 8 AK52 KJ97542
Like Marshall, I gave this one some thought before passing 3NT. It is the 2 fast tricks that made the difference for me, along with the assumption that partner can adequately stop and holds a fitting honor. If 3NT happens to fail, we are still quite a ...
Michael Rosenberg's lead problem: 632 A953 QJ72 T9
Difficult situation. Red suits look too committal, and I concur with those who stay off the possible lead due to partner's not doubling 2. My concern about a trump lead, which I chose without great conviction, is that it will tip a strong declarer off to my ...
