Hi Nelson,

We have already found a pair. Hope you find someone and good luck!

Thanks.

I am afraid we will very likely be left defending 5HX. Similar concerns with Pass.

Assuming partner will take out to 5 with a singleton heart is wishful thinking (unless you have really discussed this auction, in which case I agree X is the most flexible bid).

It is very likely partner has a singleton heart (so “death holding” is an overbid, IMO).

What kind of a hand would partner (and opps) have where 5 is not a good bet (and bidding is sane)?

Given the vul, I won't risk playing in 5HX and just bid 5 which I think is a likely make.

The comment by Craig sounds like a polite feature request which could potentially improve the experience for everyone using the tool.

Speaking as a software engineer, I would welcome such comments…

If 2 is drury, the 2 bid is actually a good bid, IMO.

Louis Sachar. The movie Holes has been pretty successful.

Barry Crane was associated with the TV series Mission Impossible and the movies based on those are pretty successful.

5D, 1H and 3 clubs is 9 tricks for declarer. You don't want partner to cover!

Yes!

Hold onto the third spade and the small club to prevent declarer from figuring out the club situation.

A similar hand (but simpler probably) I had blogged about earlier: http://ruffnsluff.blogspot.com/2016/01/keep-winners-throw-losers.html

My first thought ‘Wow! This program is pretty great!’

My second thought was ‘This is actually too deep. This will never fly as a TV program, even for the average bridge player’.

The presentation could definitely have been made better (BBO would have helped greatly if it existed).

This is far too pessimistic.

Yes your trumps are bad but they will very likely be compensated by your partner's holding (and you have six of them). You also have A, AQ and a singleton diamond.

Trump on the get go seems too committal. You could shift to a trump later (yes there likely are hands where a trump lead might be required).

CA seems to be the most flexible (trump shift, defensive crossruff etc).

I don't get this comment. Care to explain?

Given your 3 raise, the presumption that partner has 6 cards and declarer went up with the A (presumably having Kx), attitude seems to make little sense. Yet there are so many votes for it.

What am I missing?

(The only reason I can think of is partner could have 5 for their preempt, but even in that case partner will have a ‘decent’ suit?)

There is a partnership desk forum: http://bridgewinners.com/forums/browse/partnership-desk/

I suspect the mods can move this for you and you won't need to post again.

Luc, if it is Kxxx, xxx, AKx, Axxx then yes, playing safe (trump shift) and hoping for a misguess is a reasonable defense. So now have you changed your line to a to K?

Luc, give declarer JTxxx, KQxxx, Qx, A. A heart shift gives away the contract while a spade shift beats it.
