In some games, no quarter is given.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
There is a practical point which many above do not seem to have considered. When RHO bids what you expect to be the final contract and the tray comes under the screen, if you and screenmate pass, the tray goes back and the other two, INCLUDING RHO, will pick up ...
Down Under Coup
Brace ourselves? I fear I'd need bridge work, but then I'm long in the tooth.
You hold: !S87 !HAQ !DJ873 !CJ8432
If I'd know he thought that was a 3 bid I'd have doubled too. Grossly lucky majors.
You hold: !S87 !HAQ !DJ873 !CJ8432
Actually, it looks like my -380 for 2Dx+1 could be worth quite a few matchpoints. RHO expects to be doubled in 3 yet bid it anyway. I am surprised so many people double - whom are you playing against? I think 2 was more likely to go down ...

Dirty Talk

Dirty Talk
Obviously S should have kept his mouth shut, whether he held Q or not. But I suspect he was annoyed by his partner's strange decision to play a 2nd spade, removing a likely losing option. "You need something else as well!?" would be an appropriate reaction, though one best ...
Michael Rosenberg's bidding problem: 9 8 AK52 KJ97542
Interesting. I think 4 is clear, and also best played forcing. We can still play 4NT, 5, 6. Are we really going to make precisely 9 tricks in NT? I would also bid 4 over a slow 3NT, but it seems from the majority view I ...
