Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Joshua Donn's bidding problem: x Kxx JTxxx AKQx
I don't understand why partner wouldn't start with 2 on your first 3 example hands
Connecticut Teachers
Wooster street immediately springs to mind.
Tricky ruling
East is entitled to forget his agreement. South is entitled to correct information. This doesn't seem hard.
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: AJ72 743 82 QT52
Surely my opposite number, a junior, will prefer to declare rather than defend. I will win with my superior declarer play.
ATB: -650 instead of +1430
I rarely consider assigning blame when we miss our 20HCP major suit game, especially after the opponent's open. That said, if you insisted on assigning blame, West could hardly do more.
Sasha Cooper's lead problem: AKxx Qxx Tx 98xx
Leading a top is only a lost tempo if declarer needs a spade trick and needs to build it himself. More likely, we get to hear from partner if spades is our suit, and if not, get to make a much more informed guess about which suit to shift ...
Hand Locked
There are 2 pitches and 1 pitch for the 3 club losers. Not losing a is the only way to make the contract
Hand Locked
It seems even worse than an initial 2
ATB - playing 6!h
I wouldn't think of bidding any differently than South did. South should not cue shortness in partner's first bid suit. 4 was probably too much by North. He has a minimum GF, and misfits partner's first bid suit. He has controls, but only an 8 card ...
Do Players Still Sort Their Cards in the UK?
I generally call the director when my hand comes sorted, as I feel I'm in possession of UI that my hand had some kind of issue
