Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Invitational or Forcing?
I would pass with xxxx xxx xxx xxx but bid 4H with xxxx xxx xx xxxx.
How often should you cover?
This became a bit more involved than I thought it would be, but hopefully people find this interesting since I’ve never seen it written about anywhere, probably due to to how irrelevant it is to actual bridge. This is the general thought process when working out theoretical suit combinations ...
Play problem
The beginning is straightforward, win and play a spade to the queen, win the assumed club return, cash the SA, and ruff a spade (with the 8 if RHO shows out, T otherwise). At this point assuming the SJ is the only spade remaining and they have pitched once we ...
World Junior Final - Board 73
Hult made two good plays in the last segment, this was one of them -- the other, finding a small extra chance in 6, ended up not mattering. On top of it simply being the percentage play if hearts are 6-3, south probably would have opened 1N on a hand ...
Best line in a decent slam
The main danger seems to be RHO having Txx, two or fewer hearts, and no Q. I don't see any way to realistically handle this problem.
Forcing to what?
It makes little sense for 2 to be GF, you can just play that if opener bids 2 it shows a min (all other bids GF), and if responder bids over that it shows a GF. It's about as good as playing it shows a GF directly ...
Bridge Cheating Scandal - A New Cheat
I get that you want to promote your channel but this is just complete clickbait. Come on man you're better than this.
Misplay this hand with Me (with apologies to Mark Horton)
FWIW even though I voted for line (4) I thought it was close. Certainly not a clear mistake to cash a high heart (unblocking the 8) and cross to take a heart hook. If you think it's close, you may be interested to know that given a 5-5 spade ...
Misdefend this hand with me
The carding is really relevant here. If the 2 at T1 is discouraging I can't anything but winning and shifting to a club, it's the simplest and most likely beat by far (AK9x or better). If the 2 was encouraging it's hard to come up with sensible ...
Puzzle, find a lie out where you can make the contract
Marty, A98 Kxx T ATxxxx ducks the SK and leaves you with an entry short.
