Michael Rosenberg on a Grand Slam
Agree. In fact it is a very complicated setting, both in theory and in practice. To begin with, going 2 or 3 down makes no difference against 6 at the other table. Thus, whenever the declarer holding Q9x is planning to play the queen he can as well postpone ...

With both heart honors and four spades in East, and only two spades in West, diamonds 3-3 are three times as likely as four clubs in East. It is true that East, not being able to see the North hand is badly pressed to find an appropriate continuation, won't ...
How to play this suit?
At the table you can't perform an exact calculation. Nobody can. What can you do? 1. Relay on the intuition developed during your bridge years. 2. Calculate the number of success cases for each reasonable line separately. 3. Post mortem, check 2 above by taking into account the relative ...
