No prosecutor to balance the defence`s view, arguments and explanations???

This is IMHO very strange!!!

At least Lotan admits in the interview:

“On the media the evidence seems compelling”. :)

The logic conclusion of his own statement must be that Lotan understand the accusations!

But that is probably too much to ask for!

I do not think any court make verdicts about hypotetic situations/cases - at least not in Denmark. Maybe in Israel. We will see - but when?

Anyway it seems that the threats from FS have worked in some way- more delay.

I think you do not understand my point.

With S hand it does not matter (a pure guess ) who is declarer because we do not know where the opponents kings are. But what matters is to protect the kings on the N hand. Thats why your analyse is wrong ( protecting the queens). It is the kings by N which have to be protected.

With the S hand it will always be the same or better that N is declarer - a priori!

And on this hand 6H is almost laydown by N - but in danger if played by S and a diamond is lead!

On this hand it is best N is declarer!

Protecting the Queens depends where the Kings are!

I would not double.

I would lead H10.

I would have set the contract at least 3 tricks depending when declarer lead spades.

Just for the record. Here in Denmark all issues of “Dansk Bridge” ( The Danish Bridgemagazine ) from the start in 1941 and up to date has been scanned and can be read or downloaded for free for all members of The Danish Bridge Association.

It is real fun to read - and to see the old photos! ;)

But TBW has become “weaker”. Before it was knitted with clamps - now with glue which does last so good- specially not in my sauna! :(

To save money it is ok with a cheaper paper quality.

But the rest is just PERFECT!!

Since january 1970 TBW has been dumped into my mailbox. And I renew my subscription every second year - you never know when to leave! ;) So when renewing I know I am still alive!:)

I have played this “old fashioned way” the last 40 years with all my partners - and I can only recommend it.

Maybe Kevin Perkins can tell us the actual pairs agreements on the 2D bid.

@ Zenko

It is the agreements this actual E-W pair has which matters in this case!

@Chen.

If 2D by E shows more then a minimum double( more than 14 active hp ) - then there is IMHO no LA to west bidding 3D.

If 2D does not promise anything but at least 4 diamonds then Pass is a LA.

And it is my impression that the actual 2D bid showed extra. But I can of course be wrong. Who can help to clarify this?

It seems that FN leads the K vertical when having a higher honor ( the ace ).

In this example the opening leader does not have a higher honor than the K - so he leads the K horizontally.

If he leads the Q then he would play it vertical because he has a higher honor ( here the K ).

Have I missed something?
