A big thank you to the many who helped out with the moving... painting... and finally donating of many items to stock up our needed supplies. 


From the August Bridge Bulletin

Declarers are supposed to choose a line of play and state it when they claim.  That their line of play is theoretically inferior doesn't mean as a director we reject it.  We don't impose a better one.  If the stated line of play works fine.  If it falls apart in mid-stream, we deal with it from that point forward.

Bidding Commentary:

East's 2H weak jump overcall is comparable to a Weak Two:  basically a reasonable six card suit with 6-9 HCP.  It frequently servies as a good lead director.  South's 2S two level major suit response guarantees at least 5 spades with at least 11 HCP.  With 8-10 HCP, South is better placed to make a negative double.

Lead Commentary:

Painfully obvious.  Some players will lead a singleton even if they don't have one!

Defensive Commentary:  

East wins the first trick as cheaply as possible and continues with the King-Ace of hearts.  West anticipates making TWO discards.

West, how are you going to get an extra trick?  What do you discard?

Why not discard the KQ of diamonds so a diamond can be ruffed at trick four?  After all, declarer may have a singleton diamond and no diamond trick may be forthcoming.  This is not only the best defense, it is the only defense that defeats 4S.

When several discards can be envisioned, consider discarding from shortness putting yourself in a position to ruff the suit you are discarding.
