You played K to show A entry along with 's to cash for down 2.
At least you found a way for Gib to lead the suit you bid.

Unfortunately GIB has no intelligence to gain information from the play. Probably should have guessed your partner had the ace. GIB isn't smart enough to trick you to give him a trick for his J of diamonds.

You are asking too much from GIB. It is 7-2 against leading a heart at trick 4 so it's not even a coin flip chance of getting this right.

From the play and the auction, you must be 0167, so a club cannot be wrong.
Obviously we have a recall bias in favour of the assholes. -helene_t

Yes sorry MrAce. As we say, we have 2 opponents and just one partner, so misleading them in the auction will help 66% of the time and hurt 33% of the time, but this is one of the 33%.

PS johnu I'm loving the new compassionate posts :)
... and I can prove it with my usual, flawless logic.
