Tien-Chun Yang's bidding problem: KQT72 3 A954 653
2 if you know what a prebalance is; pass, if you don't.
James Creech's bidding problem: K4 6 Q985 KT9874

BTW: congrats to Declarer. He played that third round of Diamonds, giving the defense an opportunity to muck themselves up by signaling.
What is the purpose of attitude signaling?
Was that a dig, or just a fun-loving rhetorical question? Sometimes I find them even here on this blog.
What is the purpose of attitude signaling?
I guess this depends on what the pro-client partnership is trying to accomplish --- success without partnership or client improvement, or partnership/client progression. We choose Casaba's #1 when discussing partnership defense with someone to wants to listen to us. Csaba's second post is probably a common pro-client occurrence.
