Four for the price of one
5 P 5 P If I'm not going to pass 4 why did I bid 3? I cannot imagine letting the opponents play a vulnerable 4 on this bidding.
Can a declarer ask what the contract is?
Michael, The comment I missed was David Burn's about distracting an opponent. My apologies to him for overlooking one of his gems. Obviously, that was not the kind of thing I had in mind, and it doesn't seem all that relevant to the topic, since an imaginative declarer ...

Competing against mini-NT
Thanks for the links, Steve.
Does Anybody Play This Any More
Why should I assume my teammates will get the hand wrong some of the time?
