TriciaCallow wrote That's 2 hands running where North has pushed me out of a perfectly makeable 3NT into a less valuable, or in this case unmakeable, minor game. Doesn't he like me any more??? What happened to @graeme's adage that "you have to have a good reason NOT to be in 3NT"? P.S. How did anyone make 5♣? E/W led A and then hung on to their s to the bitter end.

TriciaCallow wrote With a ♣ lead, yes, of course. But not with a ♠ lead.

TriciaCallow wrote But @banksia, how do you decide whether to play the J or K? I think it's still 50%, so how did you decide? I went for the K and that was wrong. But if E had the Q and not the A, it would have been right!
banksia9 wrote Yes, @TriciaCallow, it is still a 50% chance that I will correctly guess which heart to play. However, there will be just a 34% chance if I decide to rely on the diamonds breaking 3-3. As a general principle, @hound is onto the right idea. He is trying to get an idea on the layout of the honours by counting the HCP in the minors.

TriciaCallow wrote The main reason why some people got E/W off wasn't so much the lead. If I play, say, A♠, W starts running s without drawing trumps first, going 1 or 2 down. If I lead a ♣ back, W draws trumps and makes. Sadly, I did the latter first time around.
