12:51 am - You set 'em up, I knock 'em down
</a></b></a>zigazigahh: Baby, Sporty, Scary, Quisling, Ethereal, Ginger, Posh and Moth-Eaten. In that order.
</a></b></a>ashbydelazouch: Penistone in West Yorkshire.
</a></b></a>coinchidenche: Arlington Road, which is set to be a stop on the East Line of the Leeds Supertram. Look! Is that not incredibly nifty?
</a></b></a>thesundontshine: If you can get past the obvious, I am told by people I trust and by people whose credentials I respect that it's a lot of fun, so I hope to try it some day. From either end.
</a></b></a>: None. If you take it literally, still none.
</a></b></a>storyofyourlife: Dale Winton. He isn't primarily known as an actor, but I've seen him in a few cameos and I think he could play the role quite well. Reversing the question, more interestingly, I would cast Anne Widdecombe for you.
</a></b></a>: I hear there is a very good Azerbaijani in town. Some day I shall have to investigate more fully.
</a></b></a>afewdollarsmore: lambertman, maybe zorac. Probably leiabelle too if she weren't away. This time next year, almost certainly pto452.
</a></b></a>neednewmaterial: "Two million pounds? He must have seen you coming!"
</a></b></a>: Seven Hearts is icy cold because of the 2-2 club split, but you're going to drop at least three in Seven Spades even if the finesse works. Accordingly you have to raise to Eight Hearts, make all thirteen, and go one down doubled as an imaginitive sacrifice. Ignore anyone who tells you it's illegal.
</a></b></a>takeachanceonme: Two gallons of gravy. If it was good enough for Floella Benjamin - and it always used to be - then it's good enough for me. Let's not bring Peter Duncan into this argument.
</a></b></a>: Cock-a-Leekie.
</a></b></a>1side0volume: To some extent, though I'm not exactly sure how much myself. After deep thought, it grew in February and March to a greater extent than I had ever been expecting; imagine my surprise when it started to shrink late last month and has been shrinking ever since!
</a></b></a>ibetiamone: It's an almost-acryonym referring to a Turgid Overweight Obstetrician.
</a></b></a>nuclearspoiler: Here, but don't say I didn't warn you.
</a></b></a>romanticktock: You. Duh!
</a></b></a>rattlepotspans: 208, last time I checked.
</a></b></a>: Classy operators tend to charge about £100-150 per hour around here, though I have it on good authority that basic services are available for as little as £20.
</a></b></a>tolookforwardto: Yes, I have. Probably a week on Thursday.
</a></b></a>imnotdavegorman: Apparently on the cusp between Libra and Libretto.

Thanks, everyone, for a really fun bundle of questions. We'll do this again next year!

I've been waiting for you to ask for almost seven long years, big boy. :)

Well, it depends what the others think - particularly pto452. Couldn't do anything that anyone wasn't happy with. Oh no.

A bridge too far ?

Marvellous ! If only the user in question had provided the exact hands.

It's LJ Jeopardy! - I provide the answers, you work out what the questions must have been.

I particularly enjoy hearing from people with such a fine crop of LJ usernames. (All vacant at the time, some even legal...)

Ok then...

On the next hand that evening, the other players suspected (correctly as it happened) that Amelia had forgotten to shuffle.

When Heffalump, sitting North, ended up in 7 spades doubled he was very pleased with himself, but his face fell when he saw the dummy. He was even more annoyed at the play. An initial club lead from Jojo sitting East left him in the dummy. With only one more entry to dummy he had to secure the trumps before returning, so he played 3S and took the finesse, which worked. Unwilling to miss his contract he decided that his only chance was to return to the dummy and claim hearts, hoping that Amelia sitting West would be the first to show out. Heffalump crossed to his other winning club and led AH and another heart. Amelia ruffed low, and Heffalump triumphantly overruffed with 9S before realising his problem. He was still losing two diamonds and a spade and had no way to return to dummy.

Wumpus, sitting South was good enough not to criticise Heffalump for taking him out of 7H and instead blamed himself for the 500pt loss. His suggestion met with a mixture of amusement and disbelief from the kibitzers...

So the question is: What was the analysis of the hand given by Wumpus ?

I refer the honourable gentleman to the answer I gave some mo-ments earlier.

Number 64, Mr. Speaker.
