Srdjan Katusic's bidding problem: J98 KQJT74 AQ A2
Agreed, in this case this does not same sense, 5 h should be general invitational with good suit. But I doubt its fair to just push slam decision to partner, perhaps we should take responsibility:)
Srdjan Katusic's lead problem: J643 9875 642 QJ
if anybody is interested what actually happened on the table: - diamond lead turned out to be safe, although partner has a queen, but also ten, and AJ is dummy. -club lead is also safe because partner has 10 -spade lead is also safe because declarer has 5-4 fit and with ...
Srdjan Katusic's lead problem: J643 9875 642 QJ
yes, interesting idea , could nudge declarer into going wrong way in trump suit if he is in 4-4 fit.
Srdjan Katusic's lead problem: J643 9875 642 QJ
Thx all for voting! This is real problem from important team match. By voting results, it seems close between heart and club lead. Diamond must be more dangerous than heart, and spade is suicidal, so hearts or clubs is the choice. Here is my analysis, if you are interested: On ...
Do your best shot
Alternative line after heart lead is to take club finesse immediately. From choice of opening lead and play on first trick, it appears to be big favorite to succeed. If indeed jack of club holds, we cash a king as well and then play spade queen, and if this also ...
Do your best shot
Marc, David, thx for analysis! I agree, this is sound line, works nearly all the time if diamonds are no worse then 4-2, and trumps are 3-2, except just few cases when defense can arrange to play three round of trumps. However it will usually fail if RHO has 4 ...
Tell me why I'm wrong
Ken, I agree there are similarities between these two situations, but there is also significant difference: if we bid 1 NT and correct to 2 spades we have shown some values. If we pass 2h and than bid 2s, we can be broke. That is problem for partner if he ...
Tell me why I'm wrong
I prefer to double on first turn. There is slight chance to finish in 4-3 diamond fit when partner is minimal, but if he turns out to have extras, he will be aware that we belong to game contract. If we pass, there is inevitable guessing involved if to stay ...
Best line to make 4 spades
You are right, so it seems indeed close choice, not even possible to calculate. Maybe just one tiny argument for winning lead in hand to play a club up early: there is small chance that LHO will fail to hop with the ace (he will not expect our singleton, and ...
Best line to make 4 spades
Kit, I think it is not immediately fatal if second diamond is ruffed by LHO. He will most likely play ace of club-club, we will play ace of spade-spade, and at the end, we will make if RHO has any 3 hearts because he will be squeezed in red suits ...
