The more moral game
From Julian Laderman's [i]Bumblepuppy Days[/i]: [quote]The first known document describing (bridge whist) was published in 1886. ... it established that by 1886 the earliest form of bridge was being played.[/quote]
David Goldfarb's bidding problem: K53 KJ964 KT62 3
That's what I thought at the table. On reflection, though, what can 5 possibly be? Both hands are limited, so it can hardly be any kind of slam try. Since 5 is a bid that can't exist, and that partner has bid it is AI, I ...
David Goldfarb's bidding problem: K53 KJ964 KT62 3
This hand had a happy ending for both sides, in a sense: I did bid 5. Partner in fact did have a superaccept of hearts (although I'm pretty sure he didn't intend one): AQ AQxx QJxx Kxx. Opener led the A and then tried a spade — underleading ...
Double Dummy Deal Where the Side That Can Make Slam Doesn't Bid at All
I think we're presuming that East opened a weak 2 and has turned up with the K and at least one diamond honor.
Double Dummy Deal Where the Side That Can Make Slam Doesn't Bid at All
There's a bunch of possible layouts where 4 makes but 6 doesn't — basically anything where West has the Q but clubs don't split 3-2. I think that's enough extra chance to make 4 the better spot.
Spam or Abuse of BW membership or Legit?
Well, now, do we not live in the age of the internet? Mr. Mackay's [i]magnum opus[/i] may readily be found on Project Gutenberg. Open up volume 1 and search for the phrase "great advantage"... [quote]the most absurd and preposterous of all, and which showed, more completely ...
The Impossible Transfer
I play it as showing the next suit up. So in the first sequence advancer shows spades, and in the second one clubs.
Spam or Abuse of BW membership or Legit?
If I remember my Charles Mackay correctly, the enterprising fellow in question didn't sell shares in the enterprise itself, he sold spots on the waiting list to find out more about it. And then absconded with [i]that[/i] cash.
Should partner have made 3N?
At the table I would probably count 1H, 3D, and 5C: DK, DJ, CK, CJ, DA pitching a heart, heart to the Q. West now takes the HA and cashes the DT and I now realize that my hand is squeezed in three suits. I have to pitch a club ...
YBTJ-spade game missed?
Doesn't the fourth club get pitched on a heart, whether the finesse is right or wrong?
