The best short mystery story about bridge?
I don't have the issue, but it's in the August, 1963 BW.
Indeed the South hand is above minimum. Personally, I play a 4 rebid as 0-1 KCs; the need for better methods is clear. My (borrowed from Kokish) structure allows for showing a 5-2-2-4. Now a Q ask is easy. In my view, a GF raise should always show 4 ...
Opinion on Opening 1D
I am surprised by the number of opinions express so far that seem to ignore the chance of opponents bidding spades and partner being on lead. Well, I guess if "40 years ago, we were told to open your longest suit first", there is no need to think further.
