Andrzej Matuszewski's bidding problem: K87 A52 7 KQ9875
This is the point, taking into account statistics. More cards, which are going to be finessed by pd's (playing , say 3) are in hands of E. And in the dummy there will be no jack, ten or even 9.
Andrzej Matuszewski's lead problem: 43 AQ84 AJ976 K8
I think that explanation is OK.
8 ever or never
1. There exists a carding system (basic in Poland, but known outside our country), in which one leads 9 from 109xx. We could ask about the carding. 2. You accept "horror" with clubs. But only half of horror. Assume E ducked first round of clubs but you still have doubts ...
8 ever or never
This looks like a horror, but we must face horrors. If someone has doubts where is A, there is a method to check it: Play clubs! And if they duck, play the second time!
8 ever or never
They do not make 4 for this holding.
8 ever or never
Voulnerable 4 needs something.
8 ever or never
From mathematical point of view: pd's 3 led to worse score expectation. Some participants might think this formal way.
Andrzej Matuszewski's bidding problem: AJ K652 Q6 KJ964
I've been thinking about… 5. The only possibility to declare is at level 5. So why not?
Andrzej Matuszewski's bidding problem: AJ K652 Q6 KJ964
OK, I agree that if someone would bid 3NT then please select 7NT, too.
Which line?
Because he has ace with very small spots. Now the tendency is desperately looking for a safe lead at MPs.
