Help with agreements to reach this good slam
I would not open the E hand. How about a simple: 1H - 2C 3S East can now drive the hand to slam
What's the best % play?
This is in no way a restricted choice situation. It is simply an example of vacant places. Playing for the drop of the 10 is the percentage play (52-48). A 3-1 break is more likely than a 2-2 break but that is irrelevant here. The decision is between 1-1 and ...
