King from Ace-King when suit is supported?
And this means that if you do lead an unsupported Ace, you are looking for partner to signal if they have the King. (and are still on lead). The opposite is obviously not true, you cannot lead an unsupported King.
Bad Habits of Intermediates
I will be giving some sessions soon, and I intend to start, as usual, by giving the following bidding sequence, the opponents are silent. I open 1D, and the bidding continues, 1S, 2H, 2NT, 3H I then ask how many Diamonds do I hold? In a class of 30, only ...
Full Disclosure
Wayne, are you suggesting that if someone asks, specifically, if something is a standard pre empt, that my first response should be, yes, but we play a Multi 2 Diamond bid? Or is that not enough information, and do I then have to explain how our Multi 2 Diamond bid ...

I play something similar, but have changed 2 things. Firstly, my 2NT opener is the unbalanced one, this is to stop opponents intervening, in case that is my 5 card suit. Secondly the 2NT opener promises a 5 card suit EXCLUDING clubs. this allows a lousy hand to ask and ...
Mathematic question
This is how I start the beginners lesson on the take out double. There is a very old cartoon on the wall of our bridge club, it says, "I double your one heart bid!" I point it out to my beginners and tell them this. Once upon a time a ...
New Prime Number !
