PUZZLE

A bridge puzzle suggested by Malcolm

How to make 7H by South on the lead of KC?

16 Jan

Richard Horsley has it and so has Mick

Think the contract is made by a dummy reversal play.
On the KC lead, dump a low D from dummy and win with AC. Over to dummy with a trump. Play AS dumping KD in south and then a low S to ruff in S. Back to Dummy with a trump and ruff the QS. You are now down to one trump in South and two in North and West has two trumps left. Now comes the key play….. South plays his last trump to dummy and then dummy’s last top H is played discarding the AD. This takes west’s last trump out and leaves all the good Ds to cash in North’s hand in order to make the contract.
If you did that at the table you deserve a gold star!

Cheers
Richard

ALERTING

ALERTING WHEN PLAYING ONLINE

NB referring to a completed Convention card or summarising your system at the beginning of the round does not free you from the obligation to Alert where necessary

The person who makes an alertable bid, alerts her/his bid. That is he/she clicks the alert button before making the bid. Her/his partner does not see the alert, whilst the opposition do, hence no unauthorised information is passed on. The opposition can now click on the explain box to find out the meaning of the bid from the bidder again unseen by his/her partner.

See links below for self-alerting these are very clear as to alerting action we should take when playing bridge online.
