Striping a hand and forcing an expert player to ruff his partner's winner high or ruffing my loser high while I promoted my trumps in hand and dummy. When I was brand new to ACBL did a strip endplay in 3nt based off of auction and droping a stiff K to win bracket 2.

Avon Wilsmore's lead problem: J3 52 AKJT72 KQ3
partner bids 3 preemptive so he must have at least 4 diamonds possibly 5. Since he didn't bid a major after the double my guess is odds are he doesn't have one. My first instinct was to just lead a top diamond. But then I thought maybe ...
John Diamond's bidding problem: Q3 KT73 AQ5 AJ86
Not sure why's he's afraid. Got a 6 count with some spots he could have less.
John Diamond's bidding problem: Q3 KT73 AQ5 AJ86
@Hart, lol that goes without saying if the Q of spades was somewhere else everyone would double and this would no longer be a good problem.
Rafael Sacramento's bidding problem: QJ5 AK63 K7643 Q
never raising partner's response with 3 is so silly imo. When you have shape, no good bid raising with 3 is by far the best option. I keep preaching that 7 card fits are perfectly fine at the 2 level. Over half the time plays better than 1nt.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: T96 AT KT54 QT64
I think a good 9 opposite a min 2c without a known fit is not enough for slam. I chose 4nt quantitative with 4 kick back.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: T96 AT KT54 QT64
true my example hand was 2 light for 2c. K of clubs needs to be at least an A if not more. Sometimes I'm a bit too hasty but 100% agree with you two.
Shireen Mohandes's bidding problem: A6 AQ93 QT853 84
I bet ur not the only one looking at the votes
Kevin Cline's bidding problem: KQTxx AKTx xx xx
Probably the same people that complain every time an opponent phycs. They choose to be lazy and not think and instead just believe every bid and play abc bridge.
Kevin Cline's bidding problem: KQTxx AKTx xx xx
That would've been my first question. Is 2h forcing or non-forcing.
A thin slam
better lucky than good I always say ;).
