Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What's your bid?
This deal from a club game which I directed is quite interesting. South deals and the NS cards are as follows 43 Q95 A73 QJ975 A5 AKT764 Q6 AK2 Obviously there are three cold grand slams. Nobody reached any of them and some were even in game.I would be ...
What is the best way to bid these hands?
Very interesting.Did this occur more than once?
Ethics At the Club

Three Decisions
Very interesting deal. Thanks for sharing.
Strong but How Strong?

Matchpoints 9 card suit
I am probably going there eventually, but may not buy the contract. I might not buy it anyway, but the opponents will surely be guessing, whatever they do.
What's your lead?
I will lead the 10 of spades. I am not convinced that the double of 4 diamonds was a good call. North was going to be on lead in any case. If we are playing against experts scare doubles of thisd kind rarely are effective. I assume the form of ...
