Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Do you adjust?
If everyone at the table agrees that it was out of tempo for this player, then it was out of tempo.
Suit combination: QJ8x opposite A7xxx
Cashing the ace wins against singleton king in either hand. Running the jack wins against singleton 10, 9 or 8 on the left. So running the jack is better. I don't mind using software to validate a conclusion, but any good bridge player should be able to work this ...
Does UI have to be helpful to count?
"players who would not consider 4 as an LA are not in the same class as South, or don't understand the N/S methods" If we accepted that argument, we could never rule against anyone under the UI rules. Someone could assert "I would never sit partner's ...
Does UI have to be helpful to count?

Gordon Rainsford's bidding problem: KJ542 A87 AT5 QJ
Do you expect partner to bid 6 with AQx and AKxxx?
Common game deal Wed 16 April
"I'll play diamonds from the top: if LHO ruffs the second round I hope it's from three trumps." So he ruffs from three trumps and plays another club. How will you play from here?
Suit combination: QJ8x opposite A7xxx
Running the queen gains against three 2-2 breaks. Ace and another gains against two 3-1 breaks and one 4-0 break. A specific even break is more likely than a specific uneven break. Hence running the queen is better. Did someone say something about Suitplay?
