Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Forcing or Not?
Yeah, somewhere between "Non-forcing Invitational" and "To Play".
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
@SM Your standard for proof in proving a bridge player is "ch**ting" is insane. Have you never been "fixed by palookas". You seem to make the very strange assumption that a big data method requires that the perpetrators are ch**ting on every hand. It does not. Quite the ...
An Unlucky Board
Thanks for your comments Kit. I hadn’t fully considered the doubleton honour possibility. Your line wins per force in 15 cases (3 HH * 5 singletons) vs the line taken succeeding in only 10 (10 xx * 1 K singleton), and you line is also highly likely to succeed ...

Thanks Richard. I'll bear that in mind for the next one!

Fixed, thanks :)
More Forcing/NF Support Double Havoc
RH - The principle you state is certainly true for unobstructed auctions, but when, as here, the opponents are likely to bid (I would expect West to raise to 2 a sizable % of the time) our use of bidding space should be more uniform.

Your thought process?
1) My mental picture is of one hand at a time. I do occasionally picture a suit layout in its entirety, but I am not able to picture both unseen hands simultaneously yet, I have to flip between them. 2) I do this for individual hands. But struggle to take ...
Is this restricted choice? (WBF junior finals, board 11)
In the context of the hand you certainly finesse, as if the spades are 3-3 you have 12 tricks anyway. Considering the suit in isolation, you are comparing the West holdings of 98, J98 and Q98. So the drop is roughly 2-1 favorite. Edit: There appears to be much ...
