Slam (Imps) play problem
Since South bid hearts, I think West has heart length. So: I win ace of hearts and play a high spade from my hand. If the 10 drops I can give up a heart and ruff a heart in dummy, taking 6 spades, 2 clubs, 1 heart, 3 diamonds. Otherwise ...
Slam (Imps) play problem
Bidding is fine. Now we need the hands back.
Avoid Commitment
No. Partner can only pass or bid 2S. The 2-level might be your limit (or more than your limit). If his spade suit hits responder, responder can inquire with 2NT to find out more.
Slam (Imps) play problem
I really need to know the bidding, or at least something about the bidding, before trying to answer this one. In particular, I would want to know if declarer has bid hearts. If so, then we can be pretty confident that the lead is likely from KQ109 at least. If ...
Play in 5!S
I am that confident. West isn't looking into your hand. It is 100% that West will shift to a heart if he doesn't have the king of hearts, regardless of his club holding.
Usual Kokish sequemce
John, If this were from a flight Z pair game, then I wouldn't even try to figure out what the player is thinking. I would leave that to his peers. Unless stated otherwise, I am assuming that any such problems are from flight A competition. While the individual player ...
A few 2/1=FG style questions
Even though the 4 call doesn't necessarily show 3-card diamond support, it is possible. If responder had taken this into account he would have bid 7, not 7, at the end, giving opener the final choice. It shouldn't be difficult for responder to see the ...
Usual Kokish sequemce
Regardless of what they said, you know darn well that they had no real agreement about 4NT. Also, if opener were so sure that 4NT was RKC, why wouldn't he just make the RKC response? He even has a heart suit, and if he wants to correct to 6NT ...
Usual Kokish sequemce
Partner's failure to alert is UI that he forgot you are playing Kokish. However, his 4NT call is AI giving you the same information, since obviously that is an impossible call if 2 is interpreted as Kokish. Therefore, you can bid anything you want.
Which is better as trump, 5-3 fit or 6-1 fit with semi-solid suit?
