Play Fast or Don't Worry about a Bit
Michael, order the pills and forget about Victor. And forget about this deal where you played ‘a low spade without any thought’ and got a zero. BTW, you are not giving me a hard time, it looks more like you are making a fool of yourself with your silly comments.
Play Fast or Don't Worry about a Bit
MR, if you keep recalling various episodes involving Victor etc, perhaps you should take pills that could help you forget. True, there are potential side effects, but it looks like it maybe worth a try. Now you will have to excuse me, I have a baseball game to watch.
Play Fast or Don't Worry about a Bit
Michael, your gratuitous comments are very silly. Now who cares if you ‘put the possibility of a finesse of the 6 at 0%’ ?? To repeat, on this deal West bid 3 clubs and has heart length, so playing a low spade without any thought in East’s seat is not ...
Play Fast or Don't Worry about a Bit
I just told you why you can’t play low on the first spade. West bid 3 clubs and has heart length (see RR’s comment below), so declarer can ‘see’ the spades in East’s hand. So, ‘play low without any thought’ and your suboptimal defense may allow the ...
Play Fast or Don't Worry about a Bit
Well, OK then, but if declarer’s hand is AKQ106, AQJ10xx, xx, -- and if he is inspired to cover East’s ‘low’ trump with the six, when West shows out, South leads the HQ and the defense is helpless. So, ‘play low without any thought’ and your suboptimal defense allows ...
Play Fast or Don't Worry about a Bit
You are wrong. The squeeze mechanism is a complicated one indeed, but just because East is guarding diamonds doesn’t mean that West wouldn’t like to have a diamond left at the very moment when he is endplayed.
Play Fast or Don't Worry about a Bit
Assuming declarer’s hand is AKQ106, AKJxx, xxx, ---, play a high spade to protect partner from being subjected to unbearable pressure in three suits.
Second trick
Playing declarer for a hand like xx, Axxxx, KQJx, xx with or without a heart quack, you must make sure partner wins the second trick to fire a diamond back and defeat the contract. So play the C7.
Remembering My Dad
“So cash two diamonds and lead out four hearts. West wins and must lead a spade or cash the diamond Jack first. If he leads a low spade you throw him back in for a diamond trick at the end. If he leads the jack of spades, you win and ...
Plan your defence
I’m playing South for AQx, Q10xxxx, 10, Jxx, so I win the DQ and return the C5. If partner is allowed to win trick two, I hope he knows to return a low club. Trying to make the Daily Bulletin, …
