David Parsons's bidding problem: J9 --- AKQJ854 AKQ9
No hurry at this vul. 1 won't be passed out.
England women's trials
I didn't intend to tout them or anyone else as third pair. Just felt they were worth a mention, that's all. A selector once said something this: "I never watch trials, in case I'm influenced by what I see." You can see his point - watching only one ...
England women's trials
There is a separate trial for the Olympiad.
England women's trials
The fifth pair also rate a mention - Debbie Sandford and Kath Stynes. They were awfully unlucky on the last few boards not to hang on to third and go plus.
Come On ACBL/OnPeak, It's Just Not That Hard! (NABC Hotel Gripe)
Perhaps when ACBL/OnPeak (whoever they are) room booking opens, it should be "whole tournament only" for the first few days?
Ronald Kalf's bidding problem: A7 Q6 7642 AQJT7
Hopeless methods, but 4 is obviously the bid in them.
Jurijs Balasovs's bidding problem: AKT9874 T7 A3 K7
5 is to play in spades.
Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: AKQ6 6 KQ64 KJ75
Splinter, provided partner will expect this shape for it.
Joe Hertz's bidding problem: J8 J4 JT2 AKJ872
Best reason to bid is to stay with the field. There's not much else in favour of 2. We don't really have it.
Tom Townsend's lead problem: J9 K742 QJT954 6
What you may not be factoring in is the probability of partner having diamond length or an honour. It's rather low when he passes 3 and RHO bids 3NT.
