Hand from Gatlinberg KO’s
if lho is 3424 as I said, you can simply take the first 12 tricks. So no, you don't need trumps 3-2
Hand from Gatlinberg KO’s
Looks like rho has 6 diamonds. I play a then k of clubs. If they split, I draw the third trump, cash aj of hearts spade to ace, pitch 2 spades on the hearts, and now play a spade pitching a diamond. Rho is likely to win this against non ...
ATB - -930
If West can double 3c and pass a double of 3s, then I think I can double the poster's claim that West is fairly good. Just a joke btw. But in seriousness, West hand knows a 10 card minor fit exists and that ops have an 8, likely 9 ...
One more flew over the cuckoo's nest

Partial Disclosure
let's say you sit down to play with a newer player, and bid Texas without discussion, and they alert it. Presumably you wouldn't correct the explanation to "we had no agreement". I see this situation as similar. Even if they are a regular partnership, I doubt this specific ...
Partial Disclosure
it's an awkward area of bridge when explanations are wrong not so much due to agreements, as simply the explainer not being a very strong player. I doubt this pair had an agreement about this auction - the declarer simply misinterpreted a fairly standard auction and explained it as such ...
