Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
When I first learned bridge when I was in high school, me and 3 other newbies joined the interschool bridge tournament, along with another team from our school which was much more experienced. The tournament consisted of a swiss round, then the top teams from swiss round go into double elimination. During the swiss round my partner bid 4S instead of 4D because somehow he thinks his diamonds are spades. We did not get doubled, contract goes down 3, we got a positive IMP. And at the end we barely get through the swiss round because of that game. Somehow the experienced team did not even get through, this gave me great confidence. "Maybe I am talented in this game." I thought. Then we proceeded to lose 2 games in a row in the double elimination round. Game Over.

Not sure how to bid without special agreements. Playing transfer lebensohl over 2 - X, W can bid 3 showing 5+ inv or better, E accepts invite and bids 4, W can consider moving further.
Double shot ?
I would really like to get some explanations and insights from the experts who think that a 4 bid was the obvious bid over 3 as long as that N knows 3 is probably not natural. With p's re-opening double you know that the HCP is ...
ATB - missed slam
Problem is that is there a method to allow N to know if S has shortness or xxx in .
ATB - missed slam
We have agreement in this kind of forcing situations but this specific situation we did not discuss. In general, Direct bid = this bid is clear (5 shows I want to play in 5) Pass = force XX, and then bid = this bid is not clear (P - XX - 5 ...
Does lead directing (at low/partial level) X promise a real suit?
Not when you are vul
That 4D-5C hand again
Not standard but a great alternative is to play transfer over 1 when partner responses 1 (shows 4+), you simply bid 1 to show exactly 3-card and less than reverse strength When partner responses 1 (shows 4+, deny 4 unless is ...
Should South find a bid with this hand?
Most players I know play 2 over 1 - 1 as natural.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: --- AKJ93 KQ93 KQJ3
It really depends on your agreed 3 response range
Thibault Wolf's bidding problem: 7654 T9 QJ K9753
X is a matchpoint bid
