Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What's the right defense?
I am not at all confident I know what's right and this isn't what you asked but to my eyes a diamond lead stands out as being safest. Partner's overcall should be sound at that vul. Curious what others think.
Bidding a Grand
Good point, it doesn't need to. My thinking was muddled by 6H asking for 3rd round control and pushing the partnership past 6S on a positive response, but here it is low enough to safely communicate possession of all the keys+take. Thanks.
Bidding a Grand
Ed, Creative idea - but... Besides asking for Ks, 5N tells partner that your side has all keycards in case they have a source of tricks and can count 13. If you make it a queen ask because partner doesn't have any kings, you have no bid to tell partner ...

What should be the correct ruling on this
I stand corrected then, the question is whether pitching the diamond is a "normal" play not a LA. Thank you.
What should be the correct ruling on this
The question is whether it is a LA for E to pitch the . As Roland said, sometimes players who don't know would rather hold a T than a 6. While I like Roland's approach of asking W what was going on to see if he knew, I ...
Claim Rules
Speaking as a student of Debbie's if I had to pay even a small fine for everything Debbie taught me that I proceeded to screw up anyway, I would be living in a cardboard box donating blood plasma to raise funds to cover the fines for my next round ...
