Hi Everyone,

While this hand is neither exciting nor full of learning, it is indeed one, to which a keen bridge eye will see the brilliance of false carding the nine and label that player to be nothing less than a great bridge star in the pantheon of superior players, either boldly current or, at the least. most of the way, to becoming one.

Hi Bobby,

Declarer with K9xx opposite AJx may well finesse the J first and cash the Ace when LHO must ditch the Q from Q10x. The point here is to work out such plays in advance rather tham playinf “kickself” later.
