C & G Bridge Studio 19-Oct-2014
of the Week:
is a little reminder for all of you that attended the Counting Boot Camp, and a
message for the rest of you. A
Quote from Mike Lawrence You
are in a suit contract. When dummy comes down you find yourself
missing the A & K in a side suit. If LHO did not lead the Ace or King,
then LHO very probably does not have both of them.
Kudos & Congratulations: Kudos to Marie Rose, Shirley McInnis and DeeDee Dyer our three flight B/C players to attend the Charlottetown tournament. They all received a bit of silver and Marie event took home a bottle of prized wine.

are playing transfers. LHO passes and your partner bids 2 Diamonds,

S A J 10 2
H Q 2
D A J 10 9
C Q 10 7
hand was presented in the Master Solvers puzzle (Better
and the only answer ALL the experts agreed was wrong was to DOUBLE.
Out of the 26 experts polled 12 of them (including Alan Graves and Eric
Kokish) bid 1NT explaining it was a little light but the A J 10
holdings were worth a point. The only draw back was if West doubled from
penalty but then you were not vulnerable. 7 Experts elected to PASS
not needing to get into the auction immediately, and figured LHO would bid 1
H and now on your next bid it is an easy Double. Other 7 experts thought
to bid their 4-card suits (1D or 1S) but do so at your own risk
partner will expect a 5-card suit. As long as you have a reason
to back up your conviction take whatever action you think necessary, if it
backfires hope your partner has a good sense of humour.
you at the tables,
