Daniel Jackson's bidding problem: AQ6 9853 KQ953 A
Willing to merely raise a 1 response to 2. Willing to pass a 1nt response.
Advertising prevents commenting from Android tablet
Paul: This problem has been pointed out previously, and it does seem to happen when ads are loading. It is not restricted to your Android. My tower PC with Windows 10 and all the bells and whistles does it frequently as well. I used to think it was somehow caused ...
What is needed to freebid after takeout?
Yeh, Noodle. Except for what David Wetzel points out above. I agree with him that there must be some number of Clubs I can bid which shows values; and 3 should probably be it.

That answers a question I had on 'focus'. Apparently, you believe after 3nt/3x Advancing methods (at the 4-level) should be concentrated on all 1-suited hands across the table from the 3nt bidder. We have been focusing on 1-suited Majors and 5+5+ two-suiters with a bastardized combination of Michaels ...
Follow ups to partner's 3NT overcall of their pre-empt
Are 3nt over 1) 3x, 2) 2x, and 3) 1x really all wide-ranging bids? It would seem 3nt over 3 something is the only one which could use some elaborate scheme to sort out both level and strain.
