Long time….

Please see Jonathan’s comment below for the full story.

Wednesday. Sorry. My trusty steed has yet to deliver the details of this hand. But comments are now below. More tomorrow, I hope!

Update: we’ll have the denoument of this tomorrow, Wednesday. Sorry to all those who are patiently waiting to compare their comments!

Sorry, my life is a complete shambles, not least because my father’s been very ill and then died a few weeks ago, having found out in Canberra that things were coming to a head.

I make no promises as to the regularity of posting here for now, but still. Jonathan Mestel gave me an interesting declarer play the other day. I’ve spent a while looking at it and don’t have a clue…

WEST

EAST

West….North….East….South
………………….1S…….Pass
2C…….4H……..5C…….All Pass

Not a word about the bidding, please! How else could you get to this interesting play problem. The opening lead is the HA under which South plays the queen. This might mean North has nine hearts, but might it also mean that South is unblocking from a doubleton?

What do you think?

I will suppress comments for now, and I might leave this up for a few days so that, with a bit of luck word gets around that we’re back in business here!
