Richie was great fun to partner, a good, natural and winning player. I know not everyone liked him, but I did, he had a sweet side to him and a twinkle in his eye.
I will miss him.
RIP Richie

Not uncommon to play say 4d as big fit for D and 4C (4other minor) as showing double fit. In that context the Frances hand is certainly a 4D bid.

Spades are probably 44 on lead of the 3 and no overcall. I dont see many people playing the ten of clubs from tx so it is probably a true card. If stiff 10 I need Qx heart plus lho would likely be 4441 and mightve intefered with some majors bid over our strong diamond I lay down the club ace at trick 3. I am still alive if the ten was from Tx.
Slow spade ten means little imo.

Its pairs. 2h is to play and certainly a reasonable gamble.on this hand. I dont think pass of 2d is a bad bid nor that 2h is clear but I would try 2H.

2S did even better in one match when opps bid 3N anyway and the Defence cashed 6S tricks. No idea what to lead. Probably a spade with bad hearts and a diamond a guess too. Not usually in to short suit leads, jack of clubs more of a pairs effort imo.

In Beijing 2008. Two of Englands Juniors had this auction 1C (1H)-p-(p)-double-(redouble)-2m-(3H)-P-(7H) pp double. Claimed at trick 1. Andrew Woodcock and Olly Burgess were the 7H bidders. I dont recall if it was redoubled also but could look it up, it is in the Beijing 2008 book.

It is the worst crime there is in bridge. So it is analagous to serial killing in the real world imho.

This all seems like making the game way too difficult. 95% Anyone throwing the spade jack (in standard carding) has the spade king and is simply happy to beat the contract-they are not toying with you emotions to see if you want to accept 0.35 imps(I trust your calculations). Psycologically I would think they are less likely to have the diamond queen or they may have pitched a small spade to get partner to play a diamond. At the end of the day, I do not care though, I would never give up on making the contract when the cost is one non vulnerable undertrick-life is way too short.

Varying tempo in the auction is already part of the game although you are not supposed to be trying to misslead opponents. Thinking with a singleton is different althoigh if it became acceptable I see no reason why it would be a problem. I often wonder if it would have been better if bridge had gone down the poker route where coffee housing and reading (partner's) tempo was part of the game. I think because bridge is a partnership game it could become stupidly easy in defence and bidding if you allowed partnership tells. Just look at what nunoni and shwartzer were able to acheive.

JC. I do not ignore their partner's and teamates but I keep my distance. I can never be friends with these people, only civil.

Poker and bridge use the same deck of cards but other than that I see little relationship between the two games.
