I think by quickly Sylvia means without breaking tempo to think about it when Q is played

The 10HCP thing is just about upgrading into a weak NT right?

I thought that is was prohibited by ACBL even to psych a NT with a small stiff

Do you have a favorite suit combination (or one you think you get right and a lot of others get wrong)?

I would've thought that transfers after 1 would be an extra enticement to open 1 more often than if the 1 had standard responses since (I assume) the transfer auctions are nicer. Is that not the true?

Oooh now I'm really glad I posted it – I missed this on my first pass! You're right that give the line I give on the clubs we will always go down on a spade shift. I guess on the spade shift W becomes the potentially dangerous hand so we must start with K. Now when W wins it if he continues spades we must hold up and then assuming they are continued again we must lose the club to E (which we can only do if we started with the K). If instead of continuing spades he shifts a heart after winning the K with his A we can play Q and another losing to W who will be safe in this case since he didn't set up his spade.

Thanks for catching that!

I don't think you are home yet. Once you've cleared the spades you don't have an entry back…

I'm surprised by votes for x by really good players. Is x not just negative double showing 4 spades here?

Seems like RC to me. Probability of playing the particular honor from Hx is 100% but a particular one from HHx is 50%.

oops good point about JTx I should've considered that more carefully. Still I think it's reasonable to play SA since there's a reasonable chance that even if that gives them an extra pitch they may not get to enjoy it if we cash our clubs.

I also think that it could have to do with the relative ease of memorizing conventions and such in comparison to the difficulty of studying cardplay. I know early on for me it was much easier to memorize bids than to study and work out positions or count and visualize a hand…
