The options in the poll talk about “losers”. I think all preempts are about playing tricks, not losers.

I suspect I have just labelled myself as a very old man.

I was making a small joke with the “3-3 fit” statement.

As for not raising spades with KQx xx AKxxx xxx …

If one rebids 2, what does responder do with:
xxxxx xxx x AQxx ?

Not raising spades has so many flaws I could write an article about it.

Oh wait, someone did!

I guess we should therefore be grateful that the Liam's auction did not result in a 3-3 fit.

South should be taken aside and told that if anything like that happens again, he will be spending more time with his family.

Is not the queen an entry?

Leading to the closed hand does a fraction more to hide one's holding…

I would win the K and play a diamond. Looks like the safest route for 8 (or more) tricks.

All true.

From East's point of view, why shouldn't partner have a 1-2-6-4 rubbish hand?

Well, if the WBF ever releases the Burgay Tape, a carton will be arriving in Geneva shortly after…

FIB President Luigi Firpo, 02 May 1976:

Should the inquiry determine that the tape was authentic and furthermore that the declaration by Bianchi of his cheating with Forquet was confirmed, then the Italian Bridge Federation would renounce all European and World titles won with either Bianchi or Forquet on the team.

Vine was a great comic writer… the Coldbottom stories in the Bridge World were outstanding.

I suspect quite some credit for Scanian methods should go to Anders Wirgren.

There is no question that he was an excellent analyst and theoretician.
