Patrick Gaudart's bidding problem: 32 AKJ65 AK9 865
I'm not optimistic about winning six tricks against 4. Why can't West have seven spade tricks and a heart ruff in dummy, or maybe a fourth card in a minor? Meanwhile, as little as x Qxxx QJxx AKxx makes slam laydown.
Please comment on the Ruling
Yes. I was referring to David Burn's hypothetical explanation.
Please comment on the Ruling
I don't wholly agree. All these ambiguous "no agreement" situations seem to me to impose an unfair burden on the opponents. Any action East takes here may be misinterpreted by West. Is pass an offer to play 1X? Is a major suit bid natural, or some sort of ...
Another Fine Mess
I play the spade king at trick two. Unless the suit is 4-0 it's hard to see how I don't come to ten tricks - four spades in hand, five top tricks on the side, and two ruffs in dummy, minus one possibly to the spade jack. East won ...
Forcing or Not Forcing
You have to have a way to show a six-card suit in a GF hand.

To Record or Not To Record, That is the Question
Ed, Could be. We could use Richard's suggestion, but with any key there may be disclosure issues (on Mars). Would a pair using a mixed strategy be required to disclose the key - "We overcall very light if we have the spade five and the heart seven." This is similar ...
To Record or Not To Record, That is the Question
Ed, A mixed strategy means that, with a given hand, you will randomly choose among A,B,C... with probabilities assigned to each option. The player might, for example, pass, overcall, or double with some hand, with equal probabilities. Then he could look at his watch an Dif the second ...
Cool Position After Creative Bidding
Curious hand. Two spade fours, and no nine. My plan was to play for the straightforward double squeeze, placing West with the only spade guard. If declarer keeps his wits at the end he will find the guard squeeze instead.
The ACBL and the 15 second rule
Does the 10-second skip bid rule apply when screens are in use? Say the tray comes through and my RHO, dealer, has opened 2. Am I supposed to wait? It looks like that could create some problems.
