5 diamonds 2 clubs and 2 heart tricks. It looks like east has Kx(x) so I duck the first round of clubs. If east unblocks the king I have two club tricks so he can't. West has to continue a low club or I have two club tricks but he probably won't.

Suppose west switches to a heart at trick two and the jack gets coverred (these opponents are too smart), now I have to establish the spades. King of spades out of my hand. Maybe someone will duck or the queen is singleton. they win, play a heart which I duck and win the third heart. I play the 10 and hope the person with the queen is out of hearts (or ducks). Now I go to the board with my one entry, the A, take my spades, and take the diamond finesse.

If partner has the A and K a club lead allows partner to give us two ruffs. If partner has AQ or K K, we need to start spades from our side and then wait for our trump trick. I'm trying the J. Seems like it works for more partner hands.

This is exactly why zero tolerance was implemented. So when you harass, abuse, harrangue 80 masterpoint players for acting properly and ethically, we keep her and remove you. Before ZT it would be the otherway around. Just because we are making $8.50 an hour doesn't me your director doesn't know her job.

After 1♦-1♥-3♣-3♦-3♥-4♥ 4NT-5-5-5NT-6-pass 4NT asks for key cards last suit bid. 5 is none. 5 asks for queen last suit bid. 5NT is queen of hearts no side kings. 6 to play.

It's risky to pass. Then my partner would be playing it. The other problem is slam is cold opposite. S xxx H QJxxx Dxxx Cxx.

If you are missing four trumps including the queen and next opponent hesitates when you lead the suit, play her for a singleton. She doesn't have a problem so the only reason to hesitate is because she has a singleton.

Or you can i don't know not block the suit in the first place. Does low to the jack allow you to pick up stiff king onside? Is there a point to this?

>why not low club to the jack?

low club to the jack and king. Diamond ruffed. Unblock ace king of hearts. Club to the ace. Now the queen of clubs blocks the suit.

Although not in Florida, I have the same issue of all the old frail people with thousands of masterpoints have to sit north south. Even in this day and age of masterpoint inflation I don't think anyone gets to 2000 mps without having something on the ball. In theory someone can get 50 points a year for fourty years but in practice I don't think people play horrible bridge multiple times a week for a lifetime.

Play for 3-2 hearts and 3-2 clubs. ruff a diamond. Run the queen of clubs. Say it loses and back comes a diamond. Ruff. Unblock the trump. Club to your hand. Draw the last trump. Claim.

Interesting your fantasy hand is going down one. If you cash your clubs first LHO has to unguard something but I'm not sure that's the best single dummy play.

Keep the defense on defense. Play passively.

I was defending three spades doubled with 20 high card points. I led one suit after another and she doesn't have anything in any of them. Finally I need her to have Q or we are not beating this. I underlead KJx and she plays the 10. Oh shit. No wait. She has the queen. She just played the ten.

Maybe she is taking lessons from Zia (not). It's playable as a partnership agreement but she thinks this is standard american.
