I was playing in an ACBL Robot pair game this evening, when I got a diamond lead against my 3NT contract. The diamond suit was arranged between my hand and the dummy as follows:

Q94

AT8

The low diamond lead went to the 4, K and A.

Later in the hand, after running a number of tricks and causing the opps to discard (RHO discarding several diamonds), I took the "marked" diamond finesse. I led the 10. It went small, 9, J OF HEARTS!

I thought that was pretty funny.

I frequently win with the 5 of a suit from the the opening lead so its full of humour.

Never seen that before. But of course everything can happen as a consequence of a statistical fluke in the DD simulations. It's not like it has a hard-coded rule that prevents it from wasting an honour, as I understand it.
Jesus! You have 7 count 5332 hand and pd passed 1 NT ffs! Are you planning to compete to 4 level or DBL a partscore with this shape and/or tricks? People who spend too much time in D.T topic started to talk like him --- MrAce
