A defensive problem
If you have defined T1 as upside down count here, it's pretty easy to play a club. We know declarer doesn't hold Kxxx. Declarer also can't hold K5 with, say a 3442 shape - partner's signal is inconsistent. Partner wouldn't give odd count with this middle ...
Where is that "very easy" 6NT post?
That's a shame. I thought the write up was funny and the analysis in the comments was very good. I don't know why people are upset you called Malmö dangerous. I certainly wouldn't want to risk running into Fredin on a daily basis!
How to play 6!H and win or lose the Bermuda Bowl
David, what Julian means is that when West holds J5 and plays the Jack, there is no guess. You will have seen the 8 and 9 on the right after playing A, 2. So now the Q107 are all equals against the King and there is no threat of a ...
How to play 6!H and win or lose the Bermuda Bowl
West had shown the minors... You can't call that line 75% when both finesses are more likely to fail.
Whether East bids 3 or 4 at his first turn is up to you. 4 opposite a 3rd seat W/R opener could be pretty hair-raising. If you're a bit more solid in 4th (always 5 card suit etc) then 4 is maybe okay. East ...
Plea to BBO software developers
Wow, the UI is awesome. Great initiative. I really like recording players' thinking times, too. (Personally I don't see how it's fair or acceptable to use 28 minutes to play a card, or for a table to play 3 boards in an hour, as has happened in the ...
Would you let 7!H stand?
Why couldn't North be 4423, 4432 or 3433 without K or Q? Grand might have zero play. I don't agree with the argument that North would bid RKCB on the actual hand but not these hands; I don't think North should bid RKCB on his actual hand ...
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: 8 A75 AKQ86 JT43
FWIW I really enjoy reading different views on how to handle common hand types. I also think it's important both to experience different styles of bidding and to discuss these styles with experts. Too often discussions break down into exchanges of platitudes, but you can find some very good ...
Slap in the Face
David, this action isn't Unbelievable, Bizarre or Unprecedented. It's the WBF. Grotesque is the only standard. People don't really get it (not saying you don't - just talking generally). There are so many instances where the WBF has acted in a manner showcasing corruption, contempt for ethics ...
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: Q AQ KT9432 KQ64
Lots of short honours but would still have called this a strong 1. (Repiled to Richard's comment instead of the thread by mistake.)
