William Kochneff's bidding problem: Q73 4 A5 AQJT654
True. But, after partner takes a free call of 2S, it's pretty much assumed that game will be reached. That said, when you don't want partner to pass, don't make a bid that allows him to do so.
William Kochneff's bidding problem: Q73 4 A5 AQJT654
What it boils down to is whether to ask for information from partner so you can make an intelligent decision or give information to partner so that he/she can make an intelligent decision. This hand, obviously, is problematic. You're running out of bidding room to exchange information. Partner ...
William Kochneff's bidding problem: xx AJ AKxxxx Axx

To Cover or Not to Cover...That is the Question!
Keep working on it. It's one way to improve your play. Here's a hint. Declarer should have one of four possible holdings, some more likely than others. As I mentioned in the article, I'll go into detail in a couple of days. Stay tuned, you might be ...
To Cover or Not to Cover...That is the Question!
Your comments are not wrong...but incomplete. There is so much more to this lay of the cards. And, yes, it certainly matters whether or not there is an entry. By the way, try finding the play when dummy and declarer are reversed! And, you're right about ducking with ...
Tough, but Doable
Cool.
Tough, but Doable
Sorry. You do have to lead clubs before leading a diamond to the K.
