Gordon Rainsford's lead problem: KQ9 2 KQ65 T8654
Yes correct. The abstainers know the hand from PL.
Andy Stark's bidding problem: AQ52 2 A764 JT83
I find it pays to bid practically rather than technically. Practically, partner is going to expect all weak NTs with 4S to raise here (and perhaps even some with 3). I am clearly better than that, with two aces and shortness in the opponents' suit to boot.
Andy Stark's bidding problem: AQ52 2 A764 JT83
Imo he is likely to pass thinking the same thing about you.
What would be your ruling?
Kit - one needs to be careful with this approach. If you suspect that a player may have forgotten the system and you ask them a question so that when they give an incorrect reply you are protected, this is arguably in breach of law 20 G.2: "A player may ...
Chris Derrick's lead problem: 9xx Q9xx 764 763

Agree with Kieran particularly regarding freak hands. On the other hand I notice some people abstaining because partner has made some ridiculous bid. In those circumstances I don't agree with abstain because, well, we've all been there.
Why don't DBL?
Clearly because he thought five spades were cashing.
Dave Waterman's lead problem: 965 K76 K84 8753
I'm not sure what "standard" means in context of the 1 rebid. Here it would mean an unbalanced hand in which case I lead a spade.
DIAMOND Wins Spingold
I know this topic has been almost done to death but my suggestion for a regulation has always been as follows: "1) Declarer must take at least 10 seconds before playing a card from dummy. 2) The combined time to play for dummy and third hand must be at least ...
