Congrats to our juniors - who got second
(Mike Piper was the fourth member of the team)
From Wednesday 29/7/20. If you want to do well at this game, you need to know how to defend
reasonably well. Having a good system of signalling on defence will get you a long way towards that.
This board was nearly always played in 4S by East. The bidding could have gone a number of ways but
the defence should have gone only one way. Yet, out of nine declarers in 4S, four made five, three made
four, and only two were down one, which is as it should be, given what should be a fairly routine

The declarer play problem I set earlier was a fairly simple ‘double dummy’ play problem but I made it sound more difficult than it was to make the reader think. Not one of the declarers (at our club) in 4H made twelve tricks. I believe that this hand should have pretty well played itself ‘at the table’.

I am quite, well not shocked, but a least surprised, by many of the answers to what I thought would be a simple bidding question, but also one that had a different slant to it.
The question was what you would bid when partner opened 1NT. You holding was something like:
Thanks for registering for this exercise. Some of you have still not registered so please do so if you want to be in the group.
Here is the first question, which I have already sent to a number of players, and have received some interesting answers from them.
