Defend this hand
Michael R: I won't edit to emphasize my own stupidity at making comments after midnight. Thanks for the correction. I suppose ♠Kx ♥Axx, ♦AKQJxx ♣Ax is till a possibility. I think partner might still pre empt with xxx Qxxx KJxxxx but the definitely looks more attractive.
Defend this hand
I like the just on the general principle of attacking dummy's only possible entry if the spades are blocked. But I'm prepared to look extremely foolish when partner was dealt Q9x and a void in . And am I really willing to rule out declarer bidding 3NT ...
Hall of Fame
I voted no. This doesn’t mean that I think this site would do a worse job than the current HoF organizers. I think this site could consider starting a HoF for Bridge hands of significance, a lot more fun and a lot less political.

I didn't find it offensive at all, but while reading it I did wonder how it might impact a reader who was currently in a really bad situation because of Covid19. My thanks to Doug for giving some insight into that. I'm pretty certain that had a similar ...
Dilemma
How does the double squeeze gain over spade finesse ruff a spade? It seems to cater to a void in hearts in E and lose when E has underlead K. I’m honestly not sure which I find more likely. We are told that East is the player on tilt ...
Dilemma
West probably doubled on his trump stack! Interestingly if I had played the Club ace at trick one, I could now make sense of this by deciding that East had overcalled on two Aces and a 6 card suit and West had everything else for his double. Then ruffing a ...
What's your play at trick 2?
