Vugraph Malfunction?
I wouldn't really care what my agreements are when the opponent calls for Q from dummy at that stage. I'd play 10 if I had K because when if not now is the time to finally tell my partner something useful? As south I'd definitely read 3 ...
Challenge the WC quarterfinalists' declaring skills
Hahaha, we could go on and on about this for hours.
Challenge the WC quarterfinalists' declaring skills
If north has 3424, I might just go for finesse. I'll know by then he has 3424 (okay, I could be tricked into believing this, with north pitching 9 from 109xx xxx xx xxxx)
Challenge the WC quarterfinalists' declaring skills
It didn't escape my attention. A + squeeze only works against north, so it's a showup squeeze anyway. Also, in order for that squeeze to be on, north needs at least 4-4 in the rounded suits and since I don't believe that north has less than ...
Would you let 7!H stand?
Definitely under 10 seconds (with screens)
Would you let 7!H stand?
Hi Marty, Thanks for your very detailed comment! I think it must occur to south that north have made a bidding error. How on earth could he possibly ask for aces, if south holds so many cards that could be important and if south is unlimited whereas north isn't ...
Would you let 7!H stand?
Hi Richard, Thanks for your comment. At the table, unfortunately 6 never occurred to me as a possibility. I was only focused on whether I could still bid 7 now, not how to actually achieve it. Pass and 7 were the only two bids that came to ...
Would you let 7!H stand?
Well, it was one of the questions being asked :) ("I'd like to ask your opinion on the 4♠ bid by north") And I agree that bidding 4 was somewhat short sighted and North should've see this problem coming. I argue that this case was an exception since ...
Would you let 7!H stand?
There was no written agreement about the failure to scan Q showing all KC, but if I'm not mistaken the situation had once occurred. We agreed that this was a mutual understanding
Would you let 7!H stand?
Bernard, NS don't bid slam if they're short of a KC and the Queen of trumps. That being said, South can conclude that his partner must have Q if he bids 6 but lacks a keycard. And if south has Q, then all KC must be aboard.
