Double of an "either/or bid"
If you Pass, what is 4th seat supposed to do? Pass with spade support? Bid 2N to allow partner to clarify? You'll almost certainly get a chance to bid again. Seems to me the sane thing to do is exactly the same as you would do over something like ...
Table feel vs Cheating
"Table feel" might just as well be cheating. I can't wait until we finally get electronic play and eliminate this non-bridge stupidity. It has nothing to do with the game of Bridge, only with external factors. I prefer to play Bridge, not Poker.
Club policy legal?
Is that what I should tell my beginning-intermediate bridge friends and students .... that they should be happy I psyche because they should learn how to deal with bids more advanced than Pass? A preempt is not a psyche, it's a bid in which you have what your bid says ...
Club policy legal?
Ya know, it's kinda strange. I've psyched occasionally, and I've been psyched many times, but I never realized how angry I was about that one incident until I started writing in this thread. I'm sure it was because it was a world class player who didn ...
Club policy legal?

Lead out of turn
You should decide if you like the lead, accept it. If the card is one that you can trap as a penalty card, leave it on the table. If you fear the contract has been wrong-sided, accept the lead to right-side it. If you have a tenace in the suit ...
Deportment -- who's at fault?
Neal, it's a totally secret and proprietary convention that gets me to the right contract about 97% of the time. :)
What do you call a 9-card suit?
I call it trump. I once had an opponent end in a 3N contract and as the dummy put down her 9 card club suit, two of the clubs fell off the table. Her partner observed, "If a suit is too long to fit on the table, it should be ...
