For result merchants only:
Pass leads to -420
Double to -590
4S to either -300, -100, or +50, depending on subsequent decisions, lead, etc…

Not that it matters much score-wise but you would take 12 tricks on a lead.

No struggle! Spade and a ruff and the appropriate minor back.
Down before starting. :)

Are you your partner's teacher or client?
Does your partner care about your opinion on his bidding?

Yes, as I noted in my edit. Still good for overtricks.

South does not get to play a third round of clubs ever.
It looks like multiple overtricks.
(Edit: South gets to play a third round of clubs if he gives up two tricks in the suit. Keeps the overtricks to a minimum, I suppose)

Felix, it does not seem difficult to me: I support spending my tax money to help refugees, at the same time I don't think that I personally should be tasked with bringing one home.

AKx, AJTx, KQJx, Kx.
Perhaps a similar 2=4=5=2.

I think you can gauge the chances of a forget. I assume it was you and your partner so that is low.

What bullshit. Sample size 500, across all nationalities.
Imagine how significant when making up numbers for each nation.
By the way, Italy and Argentina were rated likely to cheat by responders, not by some analysis of evidence. So this is just a measure of prejudice.

Please no one flag this.
Such a monumentally moronic comment deserves to stand and advertise the intelligence of its writer.

Neither lead strikes me as exceptional. Actually the first one looks perfectly normal.
Either way you may also take a look at the bottom right of page 9 of the very same bulletin.

Yes, you still got to be careful, partner holds AK7xx, dummy shows Jx.
Depending on your leads and the card declarer plays on the trick there may be ambiguity.
