Itabashi and Gelfand Win Silver Ribbons
Congratulations - very well done! I'm sure your next dinner will be great. Peter, you might consider getting a spokesperson for Mark. Lol.
(1M)-1NT-transfers to the M...
5431 mildly invitational w shortness in their suit and 3-c in other major - shows my whole hand right away and lets partner now set the contract. We further agree that after Stayman in these situations we won't show their major so as to be able to play diamonds when ...
Free Advice
Daniel is of course correct. Some would double first, and then bid clubs.
Cris Barrere's bidding problem: AQ85 AKQ82 2 Q96
The question in my mind was what 2 would gain. Almost certainly not a pursuit of playing that strain. The hand felt less than a good 2NT rebid and problematic in its shape. So I tried a get-by 2 bid, allowing more space and flexibility. This might have ...

Finn Kolesnik's lead problem: T7 AT87652 42 K6
Richard, I know what's going on. You're setting me up for the next time you lead against me, a kind of no-cost bluff. Very crafty. Does your comment count as a pre-alert?
Finn Kolesnik's lead problem: T7 AT87652 42 K6
A @ mp seems clear if pedestrian, as does K @ imps. I admire Richard's choice for the frank admission of his deviousness but think it's a bit of a parlay - your heart trick or ruff (with possible re-entry) might evaporate and declarer may have nothing else to ...
