Sven Pride's bidding problem: QJ63 3 Q742 Q963
This is a hand where you'd rather be playing takeout doubles by responder. Failing that, you'd like to be playing better-minor Lebensohl. With the actual agreements, I would pass and hope we're pushing +100 v. +110. (Or that partner is short enough in hearts that she decides ...
How do you respond to this question?
"Let's go over the hands after the game."
Richard Traxler's bidding problem: KJT9 JT9873 --- J43
A few points: Having an agreement about Texas in competition is important. As Steve referenced, a common one is "Texas is on if it's a jump." With that agreement in place, your options are: X = negative 3M, natural and forcing 3NT = to play 4C = natural and forcing 4D = 5-5 ...
Transfers over a takeout double

dump bidding boxes - all in favour ?
> it steals valuable table space from the kids From their cigar trays and highball glasses? > "socialiability is a top selling feature for any participating kid" The time to be social is when you go over the hands after the game. How about a compromise? We'll add a few bids ...
So Cool ... And Kind of Mean
You Grosvenored an eight year old. Now THAT is "cool and kind of mean"!
What can you do? The stuff just doesn't stop.
Here's how it sounds to me: Declarer has a 9+ card fit, known to all at the table. Dummy's king is cashed. A bored defender who started with Tx follows with the x, and expects a swift continuation so prepares the T to be played. Declarer, trying to ...

Assuming an immediate 4 isn't non-leaping Michaels...
