David Boxley's bidding problem: AQ J63 AKJ7 A862
Shouldn't 4 suggest a hand like this? A 4NT bid with good spade values.
BW 2/1: Opener's 3NT Rebid
I am open to other preferences in established partnerships. But for BW standard, I would strongly prefer if 15-17 balanced hands never open 1M.
Arend Bayer's bidding problem: T2 T92 KJ62 KQJ2
I tried to keep the footnotes brief but accurate, sorry if I failed in that. 1D is unbalanced, except that a 5332 hand with five diamonds may choose to open 1D. (More likely to open 1D with a good suit, and more likely with 3=3=5=2.) 1C contains ...
Arend Bayer's bidding problem: T2 T92 KJ62 KQJ2
So double still shows four hearts, and you give up on the natural 1NT bid?

Reducing the Manipulation Factor in Robot Individuals
I think this is a great idea. However, with all respect to Carl, I don't think he quite thought this through to the proper conclusion. I see many players making odd choices in their second bid (such as making a short suit game try after 1S P 2S in ...
EBL Launches Hall of Fame
Han, you only say so because you don't get invited to the HoF induction dinners!
Arend Bayer's lead problem: J86 AJT AT75 J53
At the table I led a club. On reflection, that seems questionable against weak NT/4-card majors - dummy is likely to have 5 clubs. Dummy had Axx x QJ98 KQTxx, declarer KQTxx KQxxx xx x, leaving partner with xxxxxx Kxx Axx. Double dummy, your lead doesn't matter. Single ...
