Year 3: Getting a Little Less Bad
You are quite right Debbie and no doubt this is the proceeding for giving the full count in clubs, instead of your clever "wake up" play. The problem with such play is that if declarer makes early discards of his 9 and 7, partner may loose the count until too ...
Year 3: Getting a Little Less Bad
You are welcome Max. Of course Debbie´s brilliant discards gives the information, but suppose you are playing such hand with a less imaginative partner who makes three club discards instead. Now you are in trouble and you have to be a good guesser to guard the 8. If you ...
Year 3: Getting a Little Less Bad
Congratulations Max, both for your fine performances in the last two years as for posting such interesting articles, which I enjoyed as the most. Defense is the most difficult issue in an expert route to mastering the game and I think that using pattern signals as a tool to improve ...
Just When I Thought I Was Out, They Pull Me Back In - Part III
Interesting case the semi's hand from a distributional point of view. Declarer is looking four even sums of cards and knows with a chance 3-1 in his favor that West has an odd pattern, East an even one and both shares their 4th suit. With such pattern's knowledge ...
How to play this hand?

Unexpected Squeeze
Combining Chances
Hi Jim. The only comment I can say about your last paragraph is that following your N°2 plan is the likely, as explained before. If it coincides with the advanced beginner´s one to land the contract is other thing. When analyzing a position with some variations, the first ...
Combining Chances
Ohh!, now I know you did mean bizarre referring to the lead in clubs, not in relation with my analysis. Well, that is better. Remember Jim says he do not consider relevant in the article to disclose the meaning of the cards played but only to give generic descriptions instead ...
Combining Chances
Bizarre assumption?. The player with 3 spades (any one) will only have an even pattern once every four times (when spades is his 4th suit). You forgot to add the 3-3-4-3 distribution in your estimation, where South can discard a heart in the fourth club round and declarer is down ...
Combining Chances
You are welcome Jim. There are many positions in the middle game where playing with the probabilities may give the solution when you have two or more different variations in the play.
