What is 1NT after a Redouble?
My 1N shows values and a stopper. I don't always have it, but that's my problem.
Missed The Play Of A Lifetime
Nick, LHO does not know the whole hand, and not everyone can work out a whole hand without pause for thought. You are making two wrong assumptions. 1) that LHO knows the hand and knows the decision is about 1 trick. 2) that somehow a huddle suggests the ace rather ...

Missed The Play Of A Lifetime
I think you are being a bit harsh on partner. Why did world champ lead the Jack instead of Low? Because world champ wanted to tempt a Queen cover. Well, if Queen cover is a possible play, then clearly your partner had something to think about.d Frankly it is ...
Missed The Play Of A Lifetime
Perhaps declarer was simply maintaining the tempo established by LHO.
