Board 4 from the 01/23/2019 Common Game
I'm not sure how cashing a second hurts the defense against 4. Even if declarer makes the anti percentage play of cashing two high trump, the defense still has two tricks, unless West also leads the Ace at trick three.
Board 20 from the 11/14/2018 Common Game
1-1-2-2-any-3 looks normal to me, but I can't imagine bidding 4 over 3 with the North hand. I would choose 4, 4, 4NT and 6 before I would choose 4. I wouldn't even accept a sign off ...
Board 13 from the 03/07/2018 Common Game
1 was certainly a risky bid, since the bidding pretty much makes it likely that your partner has about 5-9 HCP and not four \ss and not four \cs and the opponents have a misfit (no double by partner, no 2 by partner, no raise, no 1NT, no ...
Board 11 from the 03/07/2018 Common Game
With an LTC of five, the South hand is more like a 4 rebid than a 3 bid. I would certainly bid 4 if East had bid 2, or at IMPs, and do not find it an objectionable bid even at matchpoints. Note that the South ...
Board 10 from the 03/07/2018 Common Game
The main potential benefits are that South might switch to another suit (unlikely, but what would you do as South if your club suit was AKxxxx?) or that South will lead back original fourth best from T9x or fail to unblock the suit if the finesse loses. The suit ...
Board 1 from the 02/07/2018 Common Game
Whether you play the Ace or not depends on whether you believe it more likely that West is leading from the stiff 10 or the QT9. The answer to this question will depend partly on the bidding, whether North has bid s naturally and whether East has ever bid, showing ...
Board 2 from the 01/24/2018 Common Game
With a 4333 hand, a K of dubious value, and a really poor suit I think it's reasonable to pass 2. As I mentioned in my analysis, I'm not even sure South should raise if North advances 2s over 2 after an initial 2 ...
Board 5 from the 01/24/2018 Common Game
The East hand, like most highly distributional hand, is impossible to bid accurately. There are two approaches on the hand. One is to assume that it's our hand, and start with 1, planning to bid some larger number of s next. On the actual hand, this might work ...
Board 4 from the 12/06/2017 Common Game
Doug, -200 was certainly a common result on the board, and there were plenty of -300 scores as well, most likely due to playing 4. The Kaplan and Rubens method for hand evaluation is a formula for calculating hand strength that gives slightly higher values to Aces and Kings ...
Board 23 from the 10/18/2017 Common Game
As it happens, I don't ever choose hands for my analysis based on the hands themselves. I believe that almost every bridge hand is interesting in some way, and in fact have yet to find a hand that didn't have something worth noting in five years and 1000 ...
