Let's say next time you'll have this one:
KJ875 72 7 KQJT5.
Or this: KJ87 72 7 QJT873
I wonder what will you bid then. I am talking to those players who voted 3.

Does any of existing bridge engines actually use GPU? Or at least multiple cores of the CPU?

My guess is at least a void in each hand with no touching cards.

If you have to follow suit, your choices are limited by your number of cards in that suit. If you can discard (or ruff) you can choose any of your cards. That way the search tree will grow much more quickly.

(Sorry Avon, just read you comment, this is basically the same)

David, it's childish to show only hearts with your example hand. How do you continue if the heart queen is missing? Even 6-4x is improbable with a goodish 4-carder.

They were good, solid players, by the way.

… and the cheaters can win every tournament even more easily than with cheating :-)
Not to talk about the prize money (In Europe it is not rare).

Sad, but true.

Standing after the 1st round:

Strange, isn't it? They (almost?) used to be senior world champions, or what.

After the second round:

And yes, the tourney was played on tablets (and with screens). One of its many advantages is that it's harder to cheat with them. (you don't even have to be at the same table with your partner)

They can easily have 5 (perhaps 6) club, 4 diamond and 3 (even 4) spade tricks, thus may be improbable, but not completely out.

I think spades are excluded (improbable) because partner had an opportunity to double 4.

Here is the lead problem which I faced:

Please vote there too, the actual bidding may (or may not) overrule the general rule.

And here is the full board, if you are interested:

West's 1NT is perfect, but he has a super hand after 2, should have bid 3 instead of 3.
East may bid 4 too, he is on the upper side of his range.
And they are vulnerable.

When did South learn that North holds the trump ace?

I think that 2 should be 1=4=4=4 or 0=4=5=4

3rd (it was me)
I am in the camp who thinks that 3rd / 5th is a name of a lead convention where you lead the 3rd one from even.

OK, how do play the slam?
