Define Your Bids Before I Tell You My Defense
I'm not sure it would be appropriate to specify which the various internationals were who were involved in a contretemps at a US Nationals along the lines predicted above where a pair play one method against weak and one against strong. I hope I've got the facts basically ...
Can someone suggest how to run a team game with six pairs?
You can run a team game with all six pairs playing 20 deals out of the 30 in play and it takes the time for 20 deals. Jeff Aker introduced me to this movement; details below. Three tables (1/2/3). team A plays all three sets sitting N/S ...
What is safe?
I echo everything said about two hands given. Andrjez I know you are an excellent bridge player and you either constructed or edited a series of testing problems...would it be too much to ask you to make the opening leader West and dummy North? NO-ONE (I mean no-one) could ...
Superb Sportsmanship
I agree with you Michael about 'even though doubles are non alertable this one might be'.
Communication Is The Problem To The Answer
With the greatest possible respect, (which we all know means absolutely no respect) Deep Finesse tells me that after a diamond lead and five rounds of clubs (declarer pitching a spade) West cannot pitch even one diamond. Did I mistype in a play or is DF wrong or is there ...
Communication Is The Problem To The Answer
I suspect most real life people who led a diamond would pitch one on the run of the clubs; wouldn't they? And that is fatal. (I'm sure you can argue why YOU wouldn't; maybe YOU aren't 'most people').
Double dummy defense
Very nice. This sort of deal gives the lie to the argument that bot bridge isn't a challenge. it may not be 'Bridge as we know it' but it tests your skill in intriguing ways.
Communication Is The Problem To The Answer
It looks logical on a diamond lead to win the Queen (East cant gain by covering so lets say he ducks) and declarer runs the clubs. If West pitches a diamond I think declarer might be able to succeed --- but why lead the suit if you aren't going to ...
The Might Deuce
Ditto!!
Just another flat board
In my youth I tackled xx facing AQJ9xxx for one loser when at trick two I had played low (showout) QK. So no trump endplay. (I also had a side suit of A10xx in hand and Jxx in dummy but low toward the jack saw the defender rise with from ...
