Did The Blue Team Cheat?
Hmm...that could get Messi...
Percentage play to find the Queen in 6!H?
What if the subsequent bidding “begged for” a trump lead? Actually, that’s a “good” reason to duck the opening lead... perhaps West will switch to a trump (if lacking the queen).
Percentage play to find the Queen in 6!H?
Wonderful...even if the club doesn’t get ruffed, you can’t handle Qxxx of trumps unless you finesse on the first round (successfully).
Percentage play to find the Queen in 6!H?
Why would anyone cash a high club before playing on hearts?
Style Poll
Pretending to “need” good trumps for game when actually holding, eg., KQJxxx xx Axx Qx, can be a very effective psych, not least because each opponent will assign his/her partner the missing honors.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AKQ5 JT 7 QJ9863
...even with a legit. reverse? Don’t think so.
Style Poll
I hope I can too.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: A 762 KQJ98643 6
I too prefer opening 5D at this vulnerability.
Did The Blue Team Cheat?
Analogously, it could be interesting to observe individual reactions to tossing a live grenade into a town hall meeting.
Kieran Dyke's bidding problem: A6 75 KJ4 AQJ964
Excellent choice...if partner’s last name is Marcus.
