After 1S, ?
4 for a&b Though on the right day, against the right opponents, it is a little bit tempting to "walk the dog" in case b. Starting with a pass or even a forcing 1NT (if available) or anything else that takes one's fancy and slowly meandering towards ...
Strong Multi
Would it be legal right now, to play a multi, that included all 11-14 hands with a 5+ card major, and 20-21 balanced ?
What is partner's signal?
Yu, I wasn't in anyway criticizing your particular agreement. I think it is very similar to that held by most players. I am saying I feel, that as things currently stand, full disclosure is usually not possible and the inferences available to most decent partnerships are often not also ...

Double Dummy Make 4!H
East unblocks the J at trick 2. West wins trick 3 with 9 and plays a diamond through. East cannot be forced to win trick 3. But I don't think this matters to the eventual outcome
Double Dummy Make 4!H
I' m not a good enough analyst to work out exactly what happens, but doesn't this line become a bit more complicated when East gets in with the K and leads the last , West presumably discarding a small
It Doesn't Have To Be Random
Does North have to throw the K under the A in order to stop declarer coming to 3 hearts 3 diamonds and 3 clubs on any lead?
