Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: AKQJT4 T9 K5 J42
Should have specified that we play Lebensohl over the reverse so responder's method of getting out at 3 is 1-1-2-2N-3-3.
Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: AKQJT4 T9 K5 J42
Honestly, a jump after partner's reverse hasn't even been on my radar screen (perhaps showing my inexperience relative to other posters here). In your preferred methods, how narrow/broad are the specifications for that bid? Great suit, check...but how great? Does it show a solid suit (and ...

Bridge and politics
I love my bridge, but I honestly wish that those involved in governance would find better things to do with their time than focus on this, or other, feel-good but substance-free gestures.
Should This NLM Stay in his Lane?
The uncharitable view of someone who doesn't want to hear advice from qualified opponents is that they are close-minded or hubristic. A charitable view is that they are following Bob Hamman's advice to mentally move onto the next hand, and want to leave ANY post-mortem until later. Another ...
