What is your choice?
What is declarer's hand that you are playing for?
Best play in 6NT?
So the 6 was, in fact, intended as count? Btw, I can't put a number on the probability of the finessing working but it's definitely less than 50%. Had the lead been (say) a low spade, my experience is that finesse works about 30% of the ...
What is your choice?
On the bidding, declarer's most likely hand is something like Jx, KQxx, xxxx, AKx, or maybe xxx, KQx, xxxx, AKx. If he has Jxx he MIGHT have chosen to rebid 2N. The opening lead seems to suggest the 3-card holding is more likely, since partner failed to lead ...
The Kibs Are Not Alright
Nedju: "What is wrong with asking players, and asking them publicly, e.g. why didn’t you bid 2 NT - 3 NT with 3/3/3/4 but you bid 3 clubs. You get a good answer (this is our system) and you say thanks and wish them good luck ...
Assess the blame or credit
I have zero doubt I would have doubled with the North hand had that been the only one presented. Many people are pretty crazy these days when favorable. "When fixed stay fixed" does not mean you should pass when it's probably your side's only chance to get in ...
The Kibs Are Not Alright
And did Fredin respond publicly after hearing Nowosadski's answer?
ATB
I'd say East should probably not double but West's pass is just wrong.
The Kibs Are Not Alright
Eduard: Until I read your comment, I didn't know there WAS a "Nowosadzki Fredin discussion." I doubt I am the only one who didn't know. Perhaps those players are happy about your throwing their names into the conversation for the sake of "transparency". Somehow, I doubt it. "Transparency ...
Best play in 6NT?
Robert G: "You duck I set up the hearts. Unless the hearts are 5-1 this hand is over. You look kind of stupid ducking with an even number of hearts.". You don't look any less stupid by covering - and giving declarer a guaranteed 12 tricks. "I don’t have ...
Best play in 6NT?
Andy: I considered both your points about the signal. The points have some validity, but: I comsidered the first unlikely - partner might have led a falsecard from QJ9 - and 'encouraging' might feel risky. I agree it's not impossible - but the presentation of the problem made me think we were ...
