M C & G Bridge Studio 5-Apr-2015
The Bridge Studio is OPEN
on Monday (Easter Monday) the 6h!
Tip of the Week:
a 2 club opening bid, the first real bid by either player promises 5 or
more cards in the bid suit. With a balanced hand, find a NoTrump call.
The only problematic hand is the infamous 4-4-4-1 J

can count 11 tricks (4 spades, 1 heart, 4 diamonds & 2 clubs), and it
appears that the only option is the heart finesse but you have TWO finesses.
Look at the club suit. You can lead a low club from your hand toward the
C-J in dummy. If West comes up with the Queen your C-J will be your 12th
trick. If East has the C-Q well then you must go back to the heart
finesse. But TWO chances are better than one.
you at the tables,
