Crunch Time
I am never going to face a situation like this, and I appreciate any action that other players are willing to take on behalf of the game. Protests can have very different costs for different participants, and each individual much assess which type of protest they can afford. I am ...
Gold Rush
I wish I could like this a few more times
Am I overthinking ? Opening lead choice.
@Yu. I agree that partner is likely to be on the same wavelength , and a lot depends on your lead agreements. One of the things I like about a lead here is that there is a high likelihood that your partner will be playing double dummy after the first ...
Am I overthinking ? Opening lead choice.
I think there are quite a few situations where you don't need partner to fill in two of the missing three honors. Finding partner with 3 small might well be good enough if declarer has Ax in either hand. Leading a heart from an obviously long suit, might convince ...

What would you choose?
Transfers over everything, Stayman, lebensohl. Adventures in Card Play Skid Simon
TD please
I confess that I hadn't originally noticed that 3 was alerted and East believed it was a cue bid agreeing hearts. In this case I don't see the logic of winding it back to 4. If 3 was a slam try agreeing hearts, then 4 ...
Lame Claims
The first is straightforward we know declarer is going to cash AK and can't avoid dropping the QJ - so I smile and give him 3 tricks. In the second case if declarer was a beginner, and not being intentionally rude, I would explain the situation and concede 4 tricks ...
