about me

A bookful blockhead, ignorantly read

With loads of learned lumber in his head,

Fixed like a plant on his peculiar spot

To draw nutrition, propagate, and rot.

Zia would know what to do
Er... how will you make five club tricks if Q drops on the first round?
Zia would know what to do
Curious - I would say that North can't have five spades when he leads 3 and I can see 2. But then, I am in the habit of asking my opponents about their opening leads if the information might assist me. Either the OP does not adopt this regime or ...
Is this AI or UI?
Not really. I do not consider that there is any doubt about what Law 50 says. I agree completely with John that 50E3 makes no reference to the circumstances in which a penalty card is played. So what?
Is this AI or UI?
I am trying to follow this, but am having great difficulty. I'm not adding any words to Law 50E3 or anything else. Sure, there is a difference between what happened when 2 became a penalty card and what happened when East (eventually) played it. But so what? The Law ...
Best play for 6NT
Kurt above thinks there's about 1.5% difference between running J and low to Q for three diamond tricks, and I think he's right. Certainly hearts not 4-3 (about 38%) might be a big clue to the spade count, as of course would clubs 6-1, and if you ...
Best play for 6NT
Line A: run the jack. If it loses play from the top; if it wins play to the nine. Makes four tricks 25.21% of the time; makes three tricks 77.61% of the time. Line B: low to the queen. If it loses play from the top; if it ...
Is this AI or UI?
You win an ace and give partner a ruff. The card you return to indicate an entry to give him another ruff is as close to a mandatory signal as you will ever see. It is not simpler but simply false to say that no information can be attached to ...
Director call vs. fun
Cry baby probably ageist. Stick with wimp.
Is this AI or UI?
The information I claim is UI is that partner was not signalling for a club (which is not the same thing as signalling for a not-club). So unless there is no logical alternative to playing him not to have been signalling for a club, you must play him to have ...
Is this AI or UI?
Well, no one would lead a spade, you don't have any hearts, and unless you lead something we'll be here for a while.
