commo0n game 6NT
I agree -- Josh's line is right. I had been only looking at a low heart to the 8. Leading the jack is stronger, since that can power home 3 heart tricks without squandering a spade trick (which is all that is needed), and if it doesn't work the ...
commo0n game 6NT
If you go after hearts, you will potentially have to squander a spade trick to make the most of the heart suit. This means you will almost always be winding up taking a club finesse. So, maybe the right idea is the unnatural play of taking an immediate club finesse ...
What's the best line in 6H?--IMPs same as Matchpoints?
I would play a heart to the king and a heart to the jack. If Qx(x) of hearts is onside, ace of clubs and a club ruff allows me to handle a 4-1 club split. If Qxxx of hearts is onside, ace of clubs, club ruff, and heart to ...
Time to simplify the laws?
If any hesitation got the player a zero, there would be more he said she said disputes about whether or not there was a hesitation than you want to think about. In addition, having to make every bid and play instantly means one could never think about the hand at ...
A Little Help
In order for a slam to make, there are three necessities: 1) Not being off two key cards. RKC can take care of that if it appears to be the problem. 2) Not being off a cashing AK. Q-bidding can take care of that. Such Q-bids don't have to ...
How would you rule?
David, On the 7NT lead problem I would lead a spade (after the UI) because I believe a spade lead is a LA. On the hand here, I would double (after the UI) because I do not believe that pass is a LA. You may disagree with my bridge judgment ...
How Discouraging?
All it means is that either partner didn't want to encourage a club continuation or he couldn't afford a higher spot.
Is Pass Forcing?
Partner is forced to pass, double, or bid 5.
Were NS damaged because of misinformation?
Maybe I shouldn't have used the term LA. However, it isn't a question of South saying he would have doubled 3. That is just a self-serving statement. Also, it is isn't a question of how likely it is that South would have doubled 3. The ...
A Little Help
When I am playing Standard, I play as Martin describes (different coding, but the same concept). When I am playing Precision, there is no need for 2-tiered splinters, since there won't be a slam opposite a limited opening bid when I have the weaker splinter. Instead, I use the ...
