Mark Chen's lead problem: 852 QJ97 3 K9863
I led the Q and hit Partner with QJT xx QTxxx A7x. Declarer ended up making 10 tricks. The other table led the 6, Dummy had the stiff J, Partner had A74, and Declarer had QT52. Partner won their A and continued clubs. Declarer guess wrong and split honors on ...
Mark Chen's bidding problem: KQJ987 x xx Jxxx
Partner had xxx xxx x AQTxxx. Not clear if he should pass, double, or bid 7 over 7? When he passed, I was worried that they had 13 tricks in hearts, so I also bid 7, which turned out to be a phantom save. Interesting that 28 ...

Great match! So much fun to watch these great players! Thank you also to the Vugraph operators who brought all of this great USBC action right to our homes all week long! It is so nice to be able to follow each bid and each play as it happens!
Mark Chen's bidding problem: Jxx AQx AKQ8x xx
I held this hand and chose to bid 4 over 4 and then lift 4 to 5. Partner passed since he was not sure how much I was expecting for his 4 bid and thought he had a minimum. After the hand was over, I ...
Mark Chen's bidding problem: --- JTxxxx x AQJxxx
East held KQT987x x Ax xxx, South held Jxxxx AQx JT8xx -, and West held A Kxx KQxxx KTxx. The auction went: P - (2) - P - (2NT) 3S - (4) - X 2 was an intermediate two bid. We were -590, the other table found the 5 save.
