David Libchaber's bidding problem: 832 QT97 87 KQ73
Richard, Would you agree that after the 3 bid, it is more likely that the NT opener has few points in that suit and therefore they are bidding on a 30 point deck. Knowing that E/W have values on both sides has to be a positive development ...
What is 4!C?
If partner had support, wouldn't their first bid be 3 rather then 3? One can see this auction go 1 2 3 4, therefore 3 must tend to deny support and therefore 4 must be the second suit.
David Libchaber's bidding problem: 832 QT97 87 KQ73
Pushing to 3 did indeed get the opponents to declare and make 4. Dummy's hand was: QJ765 - QJ65 JT86 Over my 3, she just bid 4 that couldn't be touched. She then said to me, "good thing you bid, else I would have ...

Responder has 2 in partner's major and 5 in partner's minor
You have less then invitational values...If that doesn't clarify the type of hand you have, I don't know what will.
What would be your ruling?
This is similar to an earlier post about active ethics. Michael Rosenberg argued strongly that the onus is on the pair who forgets their agreement, and that if one forgets, one should pay some price for it. The situation here may be different, but the logical reasoning seems to me ...
Wolfe Signoff versus CheckBack Stayman over 2NT rebid
Chris, The slam try in the minor playing Wolff is via the impossible bid. Over 2NT, you bid 3C, the beginning of a poor hand and forcing the 3D rebid by opener. Over 3D, you bid 3NT. That's the slam try, since with a poor hand, you would now ...
Feedback: ACBL Convention Charts
'Christ on a cracker'...never ever heard that expression before. Nice alliteration; its meaning please?
