Nickell vs. Lall - Last Board
A low heart at trick two isolates the heart threat.
Nickell vs. Lall - Last Board
Side note-this was one of two hands where one team bid a grand, and the other stopped in game.
Michelle Steiner's bidding problem: T83 T843 KJ82 82
Surely this one will be unanimous.
What on Earth is Going on?
If 5NT is not. GSF here, then you don’t play GSF.
Has bidding to the 8+ level ever been considered in bridge?
I heard stories of attempts to bid at the 8 level some 40 + years ago. Details are lost to, but I do remember that it was not allowed. As I remember the story, it involved some of the biggest names in Bridge.
What on Earth is Going on?
You are there, and I am not-and with good reason on both counts. That said, 5NT strikes me as a standout bid over 4H, or even 3H. Once you bid 4NT, you are left with a guess that you could have avoided.
Ian Rowlands's bidding problem: --- AQ AK643 AK8732
And if partner bids 6H you will?
Finesse or drop
Why did I not ruff a heart at trick Two?
Jim Ritts's bidding problem: QT93 A AKQJ65 84
So partners was willing to defend 6H until you said they could not make it. Strange.
Mark Jones's bidding problem: AT6 --- AKQ84 AKJ97
I ruffed the heart, cashed the ace of clubs, AK of D, and claimed down 1. I think opener was 5-5-3-0.
