Andrzej Matuszewski's lead problem: AQJ95 Q7 KQ62 J4
But then K is even more automatic, isn't it?
Andrzej Matuszewski's lead problem: AQJ95 Q7 KQ62 J4
2 has nothing to do with Drury. It could be passed.
First trick
For me 1 is easier than 1NT. While after a long analysis one may prove that 1NT is optimal.
First trick
I agree! Nevertheless We have to play 2. After ducking very probable continution will be clubs. Division 5-2 is very probable. Especially in case: hearts 1-6. Having hearts that weak E could pass at the beginning.
First trick
I agree to great extend!! But you can also assume that playing a tournament at intermediate level they double quite often at MPs. Now being in difficult position we can assume that W opened with 3 aces. Since he also has no legitimate openning otherwise.
First trick
Theoretically pd could have 4=3=4=2. But more important is to analyze the basic dillema.
First trick
I made a small change: 8 became 7. May be this will change reasoning. Now it will be more difficult to drop ten in the first trick.
First trick
1NT is easy and optimal when you see dummy...
Andrzej Matuszewski's lead problem: AT7 J KQ75 KJ987
Yes, J may help declarer, who probably found his hearts values well-placed. But you have the ace and for many configurations pd will have the possibility to give you a suit preference signal.
Are these details really unimportant?
I'd say that N could pass but it is not very easy.
