David Caprera's bidding problem: Qxxxxx Kxx x xxx

At last summer's Board of Governor's meeting, there was similar discussion about the integrity of various NABC+ events, when the board decided to officially strike down the last motion to save the Baze Senior KO. My favorite comment from the meeting, was when it was suggested the reason ...

Cute Card Combination
Yep good catch! West didn't find that good play though-- J was finally exited after some hesitation, and that was that.
Cute Card Combination
Whatever red suit he exits, you can win in hand (K, Q/10 depending on what he plays), pull his last trump, and get to the board with the A, and pitch your remaining losers.
Cute Card Combination
Yes good catch, 7 should be Q, will fix!
