Richard Lawson's bidding problem: T98764 K4 A4 A64
Not sure bidding 5NT helps. Partner's hand: AKQxx Q QJ9x KQx Partner probably bids 6D. You correct back to 6S and get the same X-P-P dilemma you had before. Turns out the 4H bidder does in fact have a diamond void and the opening leader, staring at seven diamonds ...
NABC Robot Individual - How do I practice for this?
I hand-crafted the handviewer link myself, so it should be okay now.
NABC Robot Individual - How do I practice for this?
For some reason the handviewer link isn't working. Reaching out to admins to find out why.
Director, Please: Revoke
My father, decades ago, scored a top making 3NT by ducking the first trick, revoking on the second trick, and winning the third trick with his Ace. One-trick penalty, but still making because the person with the side Ace only started with three cards in the suit led. The laws ...
Richard Lawson's bidding problem: AQ J863 KJ72 987
To channel my mother for a moment: If the predilection of the opponent holding this hand at the other table would be to jump off a building, would you jump off a building too?
Slow double - should I pull anyway?
Partner's hand: AQx xx Qxxx Kxxx West has AKJ of diamonds over this hand. Against 3S the defense can take two spades and two clubs. I was the "slow" bidder. Against almost anyone else I'd feel good about making a penalty double, but my LHO is such a ...
Declare 7NT on the Nine of Diamonds lead
This is incredibly useful. Thanks for the detailed analysis. How did you arrive at these figures? By hand? I've been looking for a good bridge single-dummy analyzer for quite some time but can't find one. I used to be a math major with a predilection for statistical analysis ...
Declare 7NT - the actual layout and the subtle mistake I made
I had the dealer wrong. This was Board 8. West dealt. I'll fix that.
Richard Lawson's lead problem: AQJT43 KJ9 4 K74
Peg Kaplan has declarer's hand almost exactly right. K9x AT AKQJxx AQ Leading either a diamond or a high heart honor kills the contract. You still have to defend accurately on a diamond lead. On the run of the diamonds you have to reduce to AQJ KJ - Kx. When ...
ATB - Poor slam
FWIW, 6C makes on the actual layout. Clubs break 3-2 and the opening leader has the King of hearts.
