Get That Overtrick
There's a slight possibility that W is 1-4-3-5, so I'm going to first cash AK of clubs and see if I can get an honest count signal from E (or maybe get lucky and drop doubleton Q offside). If I think I've got the count right I ...
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: AK9xx Qx 8xxx Kx
I don't think 3 can be forcing here, as you can always bid 4 if you want to force again.
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: T7xxx Qx AJTx xx
Did partner have a way to ask for keycards over 3?
ATB missed slam
Changed to mostly W. When we are playing leb, I'd just assume going through it would be a stronger hand. Plus as JDonn mentioned below, W could have overcalled (though it's close).
ATB missed slam
I've abstained pending a system question: Are you playing lebensohl after balancing seat doubles? If so, what would West's 2N followed 4H mean? Also, should there be a 50-50 option (since none means something different)?
Floyd McWilliams's lead problem: T43 KQJ642 --- KT93
Assuming partner has Axx and declarer has 1 heart, partner will see the T on the first round (no matter who has it). This will make it clear that the J is an alarm bell, and hopefully partner can figure out to shift to a diamond. Partner doesn't know ...
Your Ruling, Please
Do we know if a poll was conducted? Seems like that's called for here (i.e. to help the director validate the existence of logical alternatives and what players of East's caliber would do without the UI).
Hiding and unhiding forums
+1 - I just tried adding a forum to my forums, and it doesn't show up in my forums list (on BW homepage).
Plan the Play 6N IMPS
Neural networks work quite well for perfect information games (chess, go, backgammon, etc.). Imperfect information games (bridge, poker) are much harder to simulate in neural nets. Without getting into too much detail: perfect information games have a deterministic value function which can be used to calculate the highest value next ...
Douglas Kuschner's bidding problem: Q82 --- AKQJ6432 A4
Dbl followed by 5. I don't think just 5 does this hand justice (you would've opened it 2, right?)
