East is the dealer and opens 1S. South’s hand is H AK8652 D AK6 C KT95 and bids 4H. Is this a legitimate bid?
Rationale for the bid was East should have 13 or more points to open therefore North South probably can’t make a slam. Four Hearts is probably a good contract and why not bid it immediately and interfere with the opponents' bidding.
EF wrote: Can you say what the probability is of one pair of players at duplicate having eight card suits, three times, over the course of play during one afternoon?
With no dealing machines, other than humans, will very odd distribution be found in the boards?
Start with these two card combinations to warm up. In both instances you are declarer in a notrump contract:
1. ♥ K42 in dummy (West) opposite your ♥ T76. South leads the queen of this suit; should you “cover an honour with an honour”?
2. ♣ Q972 opposite ♣ AK653. How should you play this suit?

What our members say
'Just a short note to thank you for putting together such a great adventure to Antartica. Without Derrick's tireless leadership of our group, the voyage would have been limited to the spectacular scenery only. Working behind the scene, you made our venture a holiday never to be forgotten.'
'Your course yesterday was excellent — informative with not a minute wasted. How you coped with that crowd I don't know — it seemed effortless. You may have to book Mosman Town Hall for your next course (which my partner and I wish to book in for now)!'
'Dear everyone at Trumps, I was quite overwhelmed to receive your card — it made me feel very special. I miss Trumps very much indeed — it was a big part of my life for over 20 years.'
'Did you know that I'm a member of the best bridge club in Sydney? Free lessons before play, rewards for winning the session played, a bulletin which I always look forward to. Well done!'
