The next time you bid a slam needing a 3-3 break, two working finesses, and an opening lead of a particular suit, and all that happens, remember this hand.

So? From the description you gave it wasn't a played card, and declarer has no penalty cards.

John, you are not required to bid, but there are consequences if you make a call other than a bid.

Please fix the bidding. Something's wrong.

Worcester Sauce? Never had it. Nor will I ever have Haggis or Blood Pudding.

(A Brit talking about good food makes as much sense as an American talking about good soccer.)

I've lived in NJ for far too many years than I wanted to. But doing so has given me an appreciation of good pizza. What you all have been mentioning has no relationship, other than the shape, of the real thing.

Do you know what the main flavoring ingredient is in Worcestershire Sauce?

So far people have suggested two different lines without giving details. How about adding those details?

I'll show the full deal in a day or two.

But is that the best line? And how do you play it? Like I said, there are a lot of possibilities.

In my game, four made 6 but did not bid it. I expect they played similarly. (Now that you mention it, my E might have overcalled, but that doesn't change the point of the hand, it just makes it more likely that the spade A is where you need it to be.)

Nope, refers to a single individual. There was a Broadway play and a movie about this person.

How about a GRL? (I'll let others figure it out.)

Sort of. As long as the ball is overlapping the line, it does not need to be placed within the circle. Typically it's placed on the line, not within the arc, but as long as part of the ball is over the marked line, it's a legal placement. That's consistent with "the entire ball must cross the entire line to be ."

Actually, if the ref told him that, he would be imparting incorrect information.

Just ask them to leave the cards out. Let partner lead and then ask your questions. That way there is no chance of UI or influence being passed.

You apply the “could have known” clause that appears in a couple places in the laws.

Are you sure you want to be in slam? Bad luck in either major makes 6 tough single dummy. That makes the slam about 50/50 at best.
