Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: 8752 KQJT8 AQ8 3
Richard notice below partner's actual hand contained Ax and stiff 9
Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: 8752 KQJT8 AQ8 3

GNT Vugraph operators needed
Maybe next year's Conditions of Contest should dictate that if you lose in the round of 16, then your team has to provide a VuGraph operator for the next round. (I hope nobody takes this seriously)
Best line in a decent slam
Ruff T1 Two rounds of . If they were 3-1, then work on . If 3-3, then you don't need finesse. If are not 2-2 and are not 3-3, then you should probably cash 1 high before finessing.
