Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Board 1 from the 07/16/2018 Common Game
3C pass 4S at my table; would you really lead a trump? Maybe if I were having a better day...
Make This Hand
I lead a club, and duck if West leads a low spade. If Qx, I pay off.
Multi-section or web - which is best?
I think playing 13 of the 22 opponents is fairer, and it appears to be a normal web movement to me... If you look at board 1 results sorted by table number, it becomes apparent that 1-11 played one set, 12-22 played the other, and board 1 started at table ...
Finish this sentence
Plausible? Correct?
Will Engel's lead problem: QT842 6 AQT KT42
I talked myself out of the spade lead when partner couldn't double 2S, but it or the diamond were big winners. Dummy was AKJxxxx Kx J98 x opposite declarer's 9 AQJ8xx xx AQxx. Worse yet, the other table didn't open 1S, and 4S had no play.
Which Movement Do You Prefer with 7 Tables?

Board 4 from the 11/20/2017 Common Game
And what is a recommended auction after North overcalls 1H instead?
What Am I Missing?
The top bracket of the K/O only had 6 teams, so they played a morning final to be eligible for the Barometer Pairs. Yes, a Monday Swiss :)
Ruling, please!
If the bidder's hand matched his convention card but not partner's, I'd say the evidence points to misinformation, and rule in the defenders' favor.
Ruling, please!
Law 75 Mistaken Explanation or Mistaken Call C. Mistaken Call The partnership agreement is as explained — 2D is strong and artificial; the mistake was in South’s call. Here there is no infraction of law, since East–West did receive an accurate description of the North– South agreement; they have ...
