Bridge is like the world, full of uncertainty. Maybe this is why I am so fascinated about it. Thanks BW and all my partners and opponents, I am still learning and making progresses steadily. Besides bridge, I try to understand the mathematical nature of life. I don't know which is more difficult, but am sure both requires a lifetime of exploration.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Defensive Problem
I meant to declarer the T indicated the K, so it's percentage to squeeze West. I couldn't blame East because I selected to lead a as East at the table.
Defensive Problem
The T as SP indicated the K, didn't it? I knew leading wouldn't cater all cases. Isn't it interesting, that a normal lead by a simple mind like mine works but an expert defense may fail?
Defensive Problem
Interesting P didn't switch to J at trick 2, nor led J at opening from AJTxxx, . Then East had no option but leading a spade when getting in with heart.
Defensive Problem
P has 3 hearts. If not, he would have probably led from his 4 cards spade. The T is for suit preference because P knows I would figure out the heart shape. Should I cash a third heart to confirm the heart position? It works unless declarer has A and ...
Continuations after opener's jump shift
"5♣ is a ♣ control denying a ♠ or ♥ control." Normally this is true, but in this case, it's impossible that opener doesn't have or control. So 5 can logically bid as shortness. I don't know if this makes sense.
Continuations after opener's jump shift
Same question here. Our bidding was 1H 1S 3D 4D 4S 5D P knew my 4S was cue, but she had nothing else to say. I think 4S cue was a bad choice, because it doesn't solve my problem even P cue 5C back. It's probably better to ...
How to continue?
"Not really getting that because if partner doesn't have SJ, he will now be squeezed in blacks," Michael, can't declarer's hand be AJxx Kxx AKxx KQ?
Meanwhile in San Antonio
I am new to Texas and played once the bracketed Swiss. It's not enjoyable because there are dozens of teams in front of you even you win a lower bracket. Next time I would rather play open pairs if not entering Bracket 1. Why can't Bracket 1 be ...
How to continue?
Would West foresee the upcoming major suits squeeze? A spade to 10, west would play high with a single honor. So if west doesn't raise, I would play East for both honors.
How to get to 4S?
When 4S gets doubled, the defense would almost 100% start with a trump lead.
