Guess the par score
-2220. Partner has ---/---/xxxx/xxxxxxx and my RHO has the other 13 minor cards. It may matter which way up they play it though...
What am I missing?
Which reminds me of the review of an opera singer whose name was Guido Nazzo. "Guido Nazzo is Nazzo Guido." Se non vero...
What am I missing?
Balance first apologize later. Maybe "Always balance if unbalanced" should be the mantra. And when you know what partner will lead if you pass and wont like it how can it be wrong? Note if partner was going to lead a major --- aren't you happy you balanced?
Director's ruling problem in a claim
Anyone want to guess who was the declarer who claimed here? :) Down one seems right to me. Anyone who claims in this position clearly hasn't worked out the problems inherent in the deal. If he had he wouldn't have claimed.
Playing Double Dummy in the Vanderbilt
I don't know what the max number of 'likes' for a post is, but consider it applied.

T-Walsh: continuations after 1!c-1!S-1NT
Over 1NT we play 2// as natural diamonds (plus major) GF. 2 puppets 2 then 2M is (3-1)-(54) inv(+). 2NT invites, 3 is to play. Our 1 response includes all GF hands with Diamonds and most minor hands but not both minors ...
Favorite swindles and other turns of events
I always feel playing a suit combination you haven't seen before is hard. With an England International to my left I opened 1NT and played there to receive the lead of the 4. Diamonds were divided (IIRC) 8 6 K J 5 4 ---- 9 2 A Q 10 7 ...
Boy Scouts of America . . . Be Prepared
Can I add another point: which of my hearts are really diamonds? And vice versa.
