Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
checking the odds
Slam in a 5-4 fit will generally play markedly differently to slam in a 5-3 fit. It's important that both bidders know of what the partnership trump assets comprise.
Defense is hard
You are indeed correct; for some partnerships, pause-SP is what they play.
checking the odds
After 1M, methods that include partner making a GF 2/1 with four trumps need revision.

Michael Kopera's bidding problem: 4 A542 AJT72 Q64
Failing fancy agreement, I am with the "What else?" school. KQJ KQJxx Kx Jxx Down in 4 on a club ruff... perhaps we should have defended 3. Or maybe it's better to bid what's under our nose.
I broke my own rule today
New Science, Edgar Kaplan, The Bridge World, Dec 1956. Reprinted with Rubens' commentary, TBW, Dec 1997.
New suit in competition when partner opens
In my view, Negative Free Bids are fine with limited opening systems (Strong Club etc)... not fine with wide-range opening systems, ie, Standard. After a double, unscrambling two wide-range hands in a competitive auction could well be impossible. As for the hand given, I think the hand is way underweight ...

Mr Golding, can you tell us: - under which NCBO you are registered? - of which bridge club(s) do you consider yourself a paid-up member? Many thanks for your reply.
The Fallacy of Restricted Choice
Anthony Goldman? Are we certain this is not another Dean Pokorny (aka William Freeman) leg-pull?
