Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Poll on the World Bridge Federation's involvement with the Olympic movement
Previous poll on the subject from Aug 2016. Will be interested to see who has changed their mind.
BW 2/1: Opener's Reverse
I did not see a decision from the previous poll, and agree the result there is relevant. (BWS choices did not always follow the majority vote, let alone plurality.) So I will vote consistently with my vote there. (Flannery is also relevant, of course, but it's a safe assumption ...
BW 2/1: Opener's 2M Rebid

ATB - High Level Decision

I doubt Avon was naive enough to think he'd get to the end without somebody posting the source of the hands. I expect he's prepared for this likelihood.
What do you bid over 1 NT ?
Yes, if it's their hand in spades (or diamonds) 3 gives them a problem. If it's your hand in hearts 3 gives you a problem. It's not obvious which is more likely.
What do you bid over 1 NT ?
Indeed, getting higher than 2 has something to recommend it whatever you play.
