Ron Lel's bidding problem: Jxx x AKJ8xxxx x
Wow David. Thanks for the contribution.

Richard - while you have described your position, on this specific hand ANY delay in impeding the opponents is dangerous when BOTH sides ALREADY have trump suits established. Yes - on the rare occasion that your partner can throw in a 3 bid (this would only happen if South passed or ...

Steve - results for spades below. Note that North was also constrained to have fewer spades than hearts. Tricks/Frequency - West in spades 1 6 2 14 3 35 4 73 5 82 6 64 7 59 8 51 9 44 10 34 11 19 12 10 13 9 Observations: 1 ...
Michael Rosenberg's bidding problem: 9 8 AK52 KJ97542
Please reread my post - all I want is a minimum of a singleton club (my wording was 'only need a singleton', perhaps I should have said 'as little as a singleton'). Any more length is gravy and it was NOT a pre-requisite for a slam - the 3N bid was the ...

Richard - I'm still confused about your point. The simulation considers EXACTLY the parameters around this hand. You (for some reason) believe that going slowly will allow you to find 3N or 4. But 66% of the time they will be making 4, which means that on a ...

Quality single dummy simulation takes ~30 seconds per hand (at least on my three year old i7) - hence if start a 500 deal run tonight and substitute spades for the diamond suit for EW, it will not be complete for 4 hours or so. While I plan on doing this ...
Michael Rosenberg's bidding problem: 9 8 AK52 KJ97542
Once partner can bid 3N, I'm interested in slam and only need a singleton club in dummy. Based on the bidding I would also expect 4 diamonds to the Q (probably QJ) with partner, and at least the heart Ace, but I'm not thinking that 4 is ...

@Richard Reitman: So I used the word 'statistics' instead of 'probabilities' and you couldn't understand my point? We deal with probabilities in bridge all the time. We bid vulnerable games if we estimate a 38% chance of success or better - we take positions on holdings based on empty spaces ...

I like the concept, since it gives you two kicks at the 5 cat and keeps 3N in the equation. Just hope that the opps can't run clubs after a heart lead and club switch - or club lead.

Statistically speaking, we need to assume that the 'balance of values' is split between the remaining players. This would mean that the opponents have a median 8.5 card fit in hearts - and median 22 HCP. With their known shortness in diamonds, I would expect a 4 bid coming ...
