Ben Green's bidding problem: 2 AKQ852 A7 AJT3
For me 4♦ is an amorphous slam try in spades, perhaps even without a diamond control. You'd rather have more than a singleton spade but there's no other option. Over 4♥, I'm bidding 4♠ and over 4♠, I'm passing. If partner has (almost) solid spades he ...
Great Grand Slam auction in the Transnational playoff in Lyon
Thanks so much Amy. The more he thought, the more I was confident he would pass. In fact I think he knew to pass after half a second but was just checking and checking he wasn't about to be foolish.

As Tom, says, a gift from the gods. I knew David held ♠KQxxx and, from hid 4♣ bid and subsequent interest in third round control (6♣) ♣AKxx, I knew little of his diamonds other than the ace but he presumably had a heart control (with two small cards, he'd ...
PASKE Wins Mixed BAM
yay, brilliant, well done
Which is the most descriptive sequence?
I think this is a perfect textbook hand for Two Clubs then a jump to 3NT (showing about a Strong Notrump). You may still get to Six Diamonds if partner patterns out to Four Diamonds with, say AKxxx, KQxx, Kxx, x

Cleaning up top level bridge is vital for its future. Otherwise our wonderful game will continue to be enjoyed by many socially but die out at the top - a real danger in any event. We must applaud Boye for his courageous initiative and tireless work to clean up the game.
Playing to the Letter of the Rule Book
I strongly believe, like Steve Bruno (and others) that the defender should play the heart as he planned. Frankly I would think nothing of it. To enforce the unintentional spade is not in the spirit of the game of bridge and the more people who enforce such things, the poorer ...
A matchpoints decision
4D. I would have thought partner does not have four spades, or he'd have bid 2S, therefore he is something like KQx, xx, xx, AQJxxx or KQx, x, xxx, AQJxxx. Bidding 4D, cue bid (can't be natural having failed to bid 3D over 3C) gives partner the chance ...
Nervous Moment
Kit, I think a really excellent article, one of your very best. The hidden gains of the favourable vulnerability is really worthy of study, whether you are a PAW or a POW...
