Welcome to Unit 190
Friday 5/18 Boards 7,11,22, and 27

This Quiz originated with Kurt Engleman who posited that these hands represented a common theme.  Can you guess what it is?

  1. Bd 11:  NV vs. NV - you hold:  T52 - Q - Q8 - AQ97542.  RHO deals and passes.  Your call?

 

     2.   Bd 22: Vul vs. not - you hold:  82 - KQJT93 - KJT9 - J.  Two passes to you.  Your call?

 

     3.   Bd 7:   Vul vs. Vul - you hold:  9 - K - 97543 - AKQ943.  You dealt.  Your call?

 

     4.   Bd 27:  NV vs. NV - you hold:  Q7 - AKT9862 - 74 - Q7.  RHO deals and passes.  Your call?

  1. Bd 11:  NV vs. NV - you hold:  T52 - Q - Q8 - AQ97542.  RHO deals and passes.  Your call?  3♣ 

                 Not quite a 1 bid, can't pass (too strong, hand could be passed out), forces oppts to make decision at 3 level              

 

 

     2.   Bd 22: Vul vs. not - you hold:  82 - KQJT93 - KJT9 - J.  Two passes to you.  Your call? 4 

                 Risky, but unlikely to go down more than one opposite black suit game. (Full disclosure; would result in zero at the table)              

                 Hearts only makes 2 and oppts dont have gameangry

     3.   Bd 7:   Vul vs. Vul - you hold:  9 - K - 97543 - AKQ943.  You dealt.  Your call?  1♣ 

                 This hand screams 3NT with many mediocre holdings by partner,  3♣ doesn't convey the strength.

 

     4.   Bd 27:  NV vs. NV - you hold:  Q7 - AKT9862 - 74 - Q7.  RHO deals and passes.  Your call? 1 

                 Different from  Bd 11 in two important ways; Major suit makes game more likely, and slightly stronger holding for NT game tries.

Wednesday 5/23 Board 9 Bridge Studio

Here's one I got wrong.  East leads a  to west's K .  West continues with the A  and a  .  You need 10 tricks.  Plan the play.

You have 8 tricks. The nineth can come from a successful club finesse.  The tenth?  Maybe the Kx♣ is on your left, but you can do better.  Set up the fifth diamond.  To do so you need three entries. So lead low to the 8♠ .

Say west wins and returns a ♠ .  Win with the 9♠ in dummy, and ruff a diamond.  Now take the club finesse, winnig with the Q♣ , and ruff another  . Now a club to the A♣ , and the 5th diamond is your 10th trick.  Nicely done!
