What signal do you give?
@Bernard I had 63 AK10x Q9x Qxxx and when I got in with Q of clubs I knew declarer had AK spades and AJ of clubs, so if he had the Q of hearts that would mean he made a strange play in diamonds. Even though I had worked all ...
What signal do you give?
I was W on this hand. From my perspective, based on declarer’s play from dummy at trick one and the fact that he considered ducking partner’s jack it was clear to me that our best defense was to continue spades even though I had led from 63. I ...
What signal do you give?
Because I don’t remember the spot played, but I had to pick something?
What signal do you give?
4th best from length at trick 1. With a bad suit can exercise judgement to lead top of three or second best from four
What signal do you give?
I agree with Bernard that I do not quite understand why so many people want partner to play another heart when we still have the K and it does not look like there is an entry to dummy to finesse it. If partner has the K it probably does not ...

Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: KJ AJ76542 A8 AK
Yes, partner may be surprised that your hand may have FIVE defensive tricks against 4 spades. That said, I suppose this is more an argument for playing a four heart opener as wide-ranging. I'm not really convinced that the number of times you avoid either languishing in 1 ...
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: KJ AJ76542 A8 AK
I think with a four count and three card support I would normally respond 1nt, but maybe that is not "normal." I also don't think it is having my cake and eating it too to suggest that opponents with half the deck and shortness in my suit will balance ...
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: KJ AJ76542 A8 AK
If partner has a 4333 Yarborough probably opponents with half the deck and only three hearts will balance? With a bit more, I think partner will stretch to bid with three hearts.
