David Liu's bidding problem: AT9 AT7 AK74 KJ8
Shiang has a good point, or a couple of them. We cannot expect too much from partner. Our perception is often skewed by a few sensational boards, where the reality is much less exciting.
Robert Greene's bidding problem: KQT8754 2 KJT93 ---
1, of course. If anyone calls the director, I will apologize -- I thought 4 was the ace.
Mortons fork and strip squeeze- dinner and a show
Play to the end instead of conceding one trick if the 12th trick will be played from hand instead of table. Even the best players might lose focus once in a while. And I have heard stories where KO matches were won by one IMP.

They always win a trick with A. With spades as trump, there is no way to avoid losing a trick to the 10 fifth behind me. Here is the full result (board #20) I did not ...

If partner has a distributional hand worth a game try, cue-bidding the void/singleton or showing the four card suit would be more helpful.
David Liu's bidding problem: A3 AT985 KQ8 Q64
I see, club holding is a problem. I think the disadvantage of playing a 5-2 fit in spades can be compensated by the benefits of using the long suit in the weak hand as trump.
David Liu's bidding problem: A3 AT985 KQ8 Q64
North held Q76 QJ42 J94 A72 and had an automatic 3NT bid after a 1NT over-call. A double or direct bid of 1H should result in 4H, taking the same ten tricks for above average, because plenty of pairs missed game. Since it is generally accepted to open 1NT with ...
