    Question 1. Not everyone (at least in the UK) plays that FSF at the 2 level is forcing to game. Some play it as forcing for 1 round giving the option to stop short of game with a misfit. I I played FSF as ALWAYS forcing to game, I would agree with the 3H bid but not otherwise.

    To Anonymous: On Problem 4, 4 diamond tricks, plus 2 club tricks, plus 2 spade tricks is only 8 tricks in total. That is why you have to lead the heart, first. You either “steal” the 9th trick, before trying to set up the 4 diamonds, or the defender plays the heart ace immediately, without capturing any of your heart honors. With the latter, you to win 3 high hearts, to go along with the other 3 AK’s.

    In problem 1, if you say 4 clubs is a possible bid, why does it get a deduction?

    At quiz #1:
    What would North bid with something like A32 KQJ98 K4 10942 after my third 2D bid (1D-1H-1S-2C!-2D-?)? Does his 2H bid always promise a 6-card suit or just a hand that can’t – shouldn’t bid NTs?

    on example 3:
    according to the bidding, P has 3 trumps, but plenty of space in diamonds.
    he also can not hold more then 3-6 pts.
    To make 4 tricks you need
    – either 1H, 2D and 1 trump
    – or 2 trump, 1 H and 1D or 1 C

    since you see 8C you can outrule the Club-trick; it’s unlikely that south holds 3C of the remaning 5, bc he must have 3H (according to your argument)
    in Diamond. The same goes for the diamond trick: if partner shortens in trump, dummy can trump one diamond, the other goes on heart….

    so by elimination the only way to beat the contract is to assume that partner has only one heart and 2 diamond tricks

    //////////////////there was an error in your selected answer. You had already played the A of it was confusing. I agree with the reason for leading to the dummy in order to steak a heart trick from East. Good analysis!

    #4 yes, as pointed out you have already led a diamond to the A So after parking a heart trick, cash the Kd. IF EVERYONE FOLLOWS, then another diamond, else 3 rounds of clubs and pray that suit breaks 3-2.

    On board 1 4 clubs is a far better bid than 3 H for good players.

    thank you so much! I just at the point where this quiz is exactly what I need and I’m going to start working 2 or 3 of them a week if I can find the rest! You are a jewel!

    BBO Quarky here. Got 4/4 right, in large part due to lessons (free lessons) from my old (pardon the double entendre) buddy Steve Conrad, BBO SRConrad. To the Anon poster wanting more lessons, Steve holds nearly daily lessons at 10 AM Eastern, just find SRConrad’s table and join it.

      Sorry, correction. His current username is ConradSR, my bad (hard to keep it straight!)
