David Boxley's bidding problem: 7 532 A532 T9632
U are a brave man my friend
You Be the Judge. Common Game 2/12/19 board 23
I was given this hand yesterday forgot if it was Jon or his pard who gave me this hand yesterday and I said I would bid 3, not 2. 2 muddied the waters. I agree that 3NT is dubious, yes u have some extras but not a ...
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: AQ9532 32 Q75 J7
I find it odd that so many club players do not know this bid is supposed to be intermediate.
At matchpoints, West's 3 is a clear overbid to me. If this is the kind of hand that West typically bids 3 on then East clearly overbid.
Play 6H on board #1 from 1/28/19 common game
I was West on this hand against Jon. His pard was as good a dummy player as there is in the field but he did go down and several made it.
3 practice finesses on one hand! all winning!
this was done against the best player in the field and he laughed it off I need to learn from that It seems to me that the majority of practice finesses taken against me work
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: AKJx AQTx AKT9x ---
this is the hand I posted where the declarer took 3 practice finesses.
Best play for 6NT
BTW what is the best line in 3nt at match points? Double finessing in diamonds could hold u to 3!
Best play for 6NT
Good analysis but sometimes those squeezes do materialize not often but certainly can add a % or two.
Tom Allan's bidding problem: AKQ9542 KJ43 A 6
