Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
ATB after pre-empt
There is a name for North's four-club bid: nothing bid.
Down Under Coup
I'd say cashing a high spade imposes sort of a MacGuffin dilemma on South.
Please assign blame
I assume that options 3 to 5 are there for the sake of completeness, not because they belong there.
Advanced safety plays
H.H. would never answer the first question without additional info: who are the opponents; and equally importantly, to what extend do they know me and my capabilities?
