about me

A bookful blockhead, ignorantly read

With loads of learned lumber in his head,

Convention Cards in NABC+ events

Directors and appeals committees encourage bad claims (by allowing them when they ought not to be allowed ...

You're not thinking straight. If North with a low singleton heart would not ruff after K to the ace and a second round of the suit, why would a shift to K look logical to South (especially since it would result in a zero if East did in fact ...

Well, yes, but the "inevitable heart ruff" blew the defence's inevitable heart trick. Declarer could not legitimately make the contract unless South's spade was the jack, and should probably not have played for his opponents to allow him to do so if it wasn't.

"But now declarer can pick up AJxx and Jxxx." Er... how?
