about me

Bridge is like the world, full of uncertainty. Maybe this is why I am so fascinated about it. Thanks BW and all my partners and opponents, I am still learning and making progresses steadily. Besides bridge, I try to understand the mathematical nature of life. I don't know which is more difficult, but am sure both requires a lifetime of exploration.

I think the problem comes from leading the K. My intuitive thought is to lead one of low clubs so that I always have two club entries in dummy. If West covers the Ace, the play is the same. If he ducks, cash one spade and then lead a heart ...

Best Line
Suit combination
Oh, I did count J9 in my calculation. So my rates still stand.
Suit combination
Without the 6, I cash the Ace and lead low toward the queen, that gives 50%. If I have both 6 and 5, I run the 10 from dummy. I cover if RHO covers. If it lost to LHO, I run the 8 next time. I would lose when LHO ...
Slam bid problem
You are right. Say east has no Q and has KQJxx KJxxxx, is he more likely to open 1S with such a minimum hand?
Slam bid problem
I don't know the exact chance of slam. West has 6+ spades, so he rates to have one or two spade honors. Thus east should have all remaining honors. The K is onside. It comes down to see whether diamonds break. But it looks like I can handle west ...
