Roger Bryant's lead problem: JT764 A3 63 KQ82
It Happened One Day
I'll rephrase Mariusz's observation. If partner passes quickly after 1NT-3NT, lead your own suit. (If partner had a decent suit of their own, they'd dither, asking you to lead a short suit.)
TD who Knows their Onions
You are right, of course, the winning at trick 13 was in the other hand. I would have made an early claim on the squeeze as any other route to the extra overtrick is so very remote. And, in an event with a tight time control, I wouldn't ...
Roger Bryant's bidding problem: T9 KJ953 KJ AJ98
No, this wasn't about hesitation in the auction. In fact, North had been - well - imaginative with 2245 (11pts, all in the minors), hoping to make a part-score in both rooms. But South, imagining 3NT was a protective attempt to play there and that one of the opponents had been ...
The value of videos

Well done Alex Hydes!
A great win by Team Mossop. I was at the event - as a player until we were KOed and a VuGrapher on the final day - and I felt sorry for the losers. It's an uber-gruelling event: you finish after midnight on the first day; and you have two 32-board ...
WBF Leaves International Olympic Committee
Nice. I also liked the EBU's report - in the April 1st edition of Bridge Magazine - that: the WBF have decided to introduce an UnDouble card into bidding boxes so that a player can undo partner's Double. Would be useful...
Lame Claims
I'm pleased to report that neither of the claimers was JM, who, coincidentally is my team-mate in the Gold Cup these days.
Lame Claims
I was defending the first one. (QJ doubleton was dealt; so no mistakes in discarding.) I wasn't at the table for the second one, so I'm going by what the TD and others have told me. Despite the speculation upthread, I think it was clear to everyone at ...
Which Pair's Resume is This?
And their imaginative defensive false-cards could really bamboozle declarer. Mine only seem to fool partner...
