San Diego NABC Appeals Casebook with commentary available online
1) I'm not claiming that doubling 3 isn't percentage. Frankly I have no idea, nor do I know whether or not I would have doubled with your hand. All I'm saying is that doubling (with the knowledge that North has 4 hearts) isn't automatic. 2 ...
How should declarer approach 3N? (Part one)
I have no idea how to play the hand. But surely running off 5 club tricks and getting a few discards from the opponents has to be an option.

Jeff, Like I said, for all East knows South has 4-card heart support and is about to bid 4. Clearly the most likely contract will be 3NT. However, if East doubles do you really think South is going to bid 3NT with nothing in hearts? He will pass, giving ...

Sorry Steve, but I don't buy that Roger would always be doubling until he believed he was told it showed 5 hearts. For all Roger knows, the opponents have a 4-4 heart fit and are about to land in 4. Even a 4-3 heart fit might be sufficient ...
Unravelling stoppers
When your partner opens 1NT (whatever range) and you have a balanced GF hand, do you worry about stoppers? No, you don't. You use whatever methods to determine whether or not you have an 8-card major-suit fit, and take it from there. The same is true here. If you ...
Who Will Direct the Directors?
I think the issue is a matter of intent. Every player at some time due to inattentiveness or carelessness has failed to fully explain a bid. When this happens and the opponents are damaged, the score is adjudicated appropriately. Had it been North who gave the incomplete explanation, there would ...
Best line in 3NT?
Suppose on some similar but different hand your spade holding was Axx opposite dummy's QJx, and your only hope to make was to take 3 spade tricks. If you try a small spade off dummy, might not East be tempted to go up king if he doesn't have ...
Best line in 3NT?
If the diamonds are 3-3 anything you do works, so you can throw that out of the equation. If you try spades first, you will then test the diamonds before playing a second spade (or continue spades if it appears the hearts are 4-4 -- you will probably be able to ...
Best line in 3NT?
Give declarer A98x Q10xx Ax AJx. Declarer has 3 spade tricks, 1 heart trick, 3 diamond tricks (assuming diamonds don't split), and 1 club trick. That wasn't difficult at all.
Best line in 3NT?
Really? How automatic to think his cover from Kxx would be if you started with A98x?
