Jannes van 't Oever's bidding problem: 5 T862 AK975 T93
At matchpoints your best action might have been a 2 overcall to direct the lead.
Penalty or General Values Double?
After a single raise, a subsequent double should be penalty. The single raise has already put your hand into a narrow band, so a double to show transferable values is not so needed.
Better Preempts III: Who has the Values?
re idea #1: Culbertson's notion is true only in the absence of other information. When RHO has passed as dealer, we no longer necessarily expect him to hold 1/3 of the unseen cards. Similarly if RHO opened, we wouldn't expect him to hold 1/3 of the ...
Garey Hayden
I was very sorry other that. I played a regional with him once. He was a good and decent person who treated everyone around him well.
have you ever seen this slam at one table doubled one level at the other
When I was a young man, I remember a similar post mortem. I had opened in 3rd chair, on a 11 count and caught a big fit. Through some rather spectacular overbidding on partner's part, we arrived in a small slam contract. I was declaring. The contract could have ...

Ernesto d´Orsi R.I.P.
My deepest sympathies to his family. RIP Ernesto.
2-way minor forcing after 1m-1M-1NT
The basic notion is to distinguish slam tries into two groups: 1. Those where trumps are not a problem. 2. Those where trumps might be a problem. Auction 1. AJTxx, Kx, x, AQJxx 1 -- 1 1NT -- 3 Responder shows 5-5+ in the blacks. Opener may cooperate holding ...
2-way minor forcing after 1m-1M-1NT
Yes, all three level jumps show distributional and slammish hands. For example: AKxxx, x, AQJxx, xx 1 -- 1 1NT -- 3 AKxxxxx, x, Ax, Qxx 1 -- 1 1NT -- 3
