Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
I find this hand fascinating
Just stick to body language like everyone else ;-)
Luck, skill, judgement, intuition?
I'm guessing east must have thrown the 'useless' J under the J.
Luck, skill, judgement, intuition?
I think you are right, so add misdefence into the title! But at least it's harder for east to get it right.
You know its not your night when...
If only they would.
Luck, skill, judgement, intuition?
I think I've got the end position wrong (I played 86 boards after this one at the weekend). I suspect I kept a spade and ditched 4 on the second club. Corrected the diagram.

2 was passed out, partner of course has a singleton and 4 hearts :-( Shrug time...
1!d-1N foring
I think it's far more important to describe your hand to your partner so that you end up in the right contract than it is to keep the defence in the dark.

I knew that rule had a name, I just thought it was mine! 2-way finesses are the bane of my life.
Strong Club, Transfer Positives, 1Spade Neg.
We play split range transfers opposite our 1C and 1D opening, however they are at the 2 level. E.g. 1-2 is a transfer to hearts, responder is very weak with 6 hearts or 10-14 (ish) with 5 + hearts.

I'm passing 1S too. :-(
