Hi Bobby,

With regard to suit combinations, I just found the following online:

Could you advise if it is any good or recommend something you regard as a reasonable oracle here?

@ Iain
The Encyclopedia of Bridge has an extensive section on card combinations.
Percentage Play’s exact situation is # 256 in my 7th Edition !!
Shows Bobby’s low to the nine is, mathematically, 90% for one loser.

Hi Clarksburg,

Many thanks for that.

Hi Iain & Clarksburg,

Most so called Official Card Combination menus are almost very close to
exactly correct, quite different from random conversation during or after the play.

BTW, I’ve had serious computer problems the last couple of days. causing me to
not be ever present and do offer an apology.
