Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Your Discard?
If you always play your diamonds up the line, he will *know* you have two s left (because your last cannot be the K -- you would have led those, no?). Of course, if you play your s randomly, and they come out 57Q then he may believe that you ...
Your Discard?
Yes, I screwed this up. Stupid. Declarer had KJx 109x xx AKQJ10. and had kept an entry to hand. But in any event the problem is really kind of a non-problem. The important point was that you have to treat your diamonds as random small cards and discard them so ...

But he does sometimes wear a mac.
Missed Game; Missed Slam
Years ago I was much taken with Ed Manfield's series of articles about "fit showing jumps". For those who practice those methods, would you do it on the East hand? There is a question as to whether, over a minor, the jump shows 4M,5m or 5M,4m. The ...
Missed Game; Missed Slam
You have never seen that collection of bids? I am not sure that enough has been said since I find the comment capable of any one of a number of interpretations.
Missed Game; Missed Slam
Marty If West has four diamonds then he has a weak notrump pattern and strength. It's possible that West would signoff in 3 with such a hand don't you think?
