Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
This should be a simple if rare suitplay question
Of course he had you routinely down two with that play, so maybe should believe double and lead SJ at trick two.
Which Squeeze? #7 -- Solution
Nice analysis, except the "trump" reference. Thought I was reading the news.
Escape 1!Cx Down Four
Does an "escape" to down five count?
Which Squeeze 6 with "Solution"
If you can place the CK you have a lock. If West has it, a double squeeze. If East has it, a ruffout squeeze (no need for any guard element).
On computer versus hand shuffling
Of course in tournament bridge the issue is not whether finesses win or lose, but how they fare in relation to your contract. If you stay out of a close game or slam, you want finesses to lose.
Bridge and the Environment
I do my job! My "delta environmental damage" is virtually zero flying mostly Southwest.
Bidding starts (1!C)-1!D-(1!S)...
I'm getting tame with age. Thinking was "It's cards, boy!" (If that sounds offensive, I'd swear it was to Mr. Brogeland.)
Bidding starts (1!C)-1!D-(1!S)...
Double is takeout (8+) showing at least four hearts, and 1NT is natural (8-11). Further details could be described as "bridge."
Strategy for Winning NABC Pair Event
Other: Break into the hand-record safe before each session, but still "misguess" at least once to cover your tracks.
Which Squeeze 6
Draw trumps, HAK (pitch diamond), heart ruff. If East has hearts stopped, you only need to judge which minor he has unguarded to complete the double squeeze. (Should be easy at the table.)
