Lesson Thursday 9/4

Updated after the class on 9/4.

Here’s what I covered.


1.  Suit combination AJ9 opposite xx(x), what’s the best play for 2 tricks?

Answer:  You should finesse the 9 on the first trick.  If it loses to the K or Q then finesse the J the second time.  This wins when RHO has Kx(x)(x) or Qx(x)(x) and loses when RHO has 10x(x)(x), 2:1 odds.

2.  Two defense problems I posted:

3.  Weak Two Bids
