Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Katz, Levin, Rodwell Elected to HOF
Congratulations to all three. All are in the tiny group of people I think of as "first ballot sure things" for the HOF.
Overtrick guess
Alan, most of your analysis seems similar to mine: if declarer has KQ(x) of hearts then he doesn't need the extra discard(s), so returning a club will only lose when he has both a third round heart loser and a third round diamond loser. That's one ...
Overtrick guess
For reasons stated above, I strongly believe partner started with Ax of clubs. Nonetheless, it may still be wrong to lead a club at trick 3, even if it gives partner a ruff! If we get this ruff it means declarer's shape was 5-3-2-3 or 5-2-3-3. Either way, even ...
Overtrick guess
I agree with Kit. IMO partner very likely started with Ax. It would be highly unusual to lead the Ace from Axx against a non-slam contract, especially when dummy bid this suit. On top of that, declarer would need to be fairly farsighted (in a good way) to false card ...
1!H-1N; 2!H-2!S
I thought the 2S bid in this sequence was fairly standard, but after reading the thread above maybe it's less firmly agreed than I thought. As I've learned it (and play it), 2S says nothing about spades, it's completely artificial. It shows a good hand (invitational) with ...
Deos anyone have further information regarding the process of evaluating and implementing the new ACBL convention charts?
The board is going to vote at the Spring NABC in Philadelphia. Assuming approval, the new charts will likely go into effect either at the Fall NABC or in 2019; that's one of the issues the Board still needs to decide.
ATB missed grand
Stefan, I didn't say "zero," I said "CLOSE to zero." I stand by that. Further, even if West holds a hand missing the AK of diamonds, as long as we have the other 4 key cards (which I'll find out by taking control and asking), it's 99 ...
ATB missed grand
Both Jay and Esko are right. IMO both players are at fault: each made at least one very poorly judged bid. IMO the mistakes are about equal so I'd assign 50% blame to each player. East's bad bid was 4H. After West's 4C control bid, East should ...
Henry Bethe's bidding problem: AJT86 5 QT95 AK3
3H as a splinter is vastly more informative to partner than a simple raise to 3D. After 3D, how is he supposed to know whether 3NT or 5D is right? He has no room to show a club stopper (needing help in hearts for 3NT), etc. Likewise, holding QJ9x in ...
Who bid wrongly?
Richard, how can you say East's hand is a "doubtful GF"? It's at worst a 6 loser hand, probably only 5 losers. It's almost certain to take 8 tricks in 3NT so you only need 1 trick from a partner who opened. It's not worth a ...
