Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Which trump do you play?
How about: QJ8xxx Qx KQ KT9? Unlikely I suppose, but assuming that partner has a spade stopper (presumably Kx), what are the winning cases for ducking?
Considing Otpions When Leading Against A Grand Slam.
What losing option did you have in mind? Playing for 4-2 diamonds and 2-2 clubs is clearly inferior to playing for 3-3 diamonds or a squeeze, and in fact a double squeeze materializes on the run of the clubs. Edit: Sorry, there is no double squeeze (as pointed out by ...
Looking for pair for Memphis -- Vanderbilt or 0-10K KO
We have found teammates. Thanks to all who expressed an interest.

10 missing K slam percentage
Something is not adding up here. The trick-taking expectation of the finesse is clearly 12.0 (50% of 13 and 50% of 11). If the calculations above are accurate, the expectation of the combination play is 11.85, so the conclusion is sound (assuming, if MPs, that the entire field ...
