Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: Ax AKJxx --- AKJxxx
Are we South in this sequence? The diagram shows East as having the "?" as the player to call, but your comments about opening read like it's the South hand being asked about (East didn't have a chance to bid earlier).
The arrow switch doesn't work
There is one possible issue that I have noticed with a one-round arrow switch. Suppose that there is one expert pair in the game that is much better than everyone else. Pairs that start the same direction as this expert pair will play a large percentage of the hands the ...
You Hold Update

Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: Q QJ92 J QJT9842
6 would probably be my call without any UI, but I did seriously consider Pass (making it an LA) and 6 is suggested over that by the UI. So if I bid, I would expect the director to roll back the contract to 6 (unless 6 ...

3-way KO match
Alex, those are the tie breakers for head-to-head matches, not 3-way matches.

Gary Ansok's bidding problem: A 2 KJ8532 KQ954
At the table, I did pass (thinking the opponents must be ready to outbid me in a major), and we ended up with a 29% board. Partner had K9863 / A98 / A9 / T72, and we can make 5 of either minor. Many pairs were in 4 of a minor, perhaps after ...
What do you say? (Part 2)
I'm not consistent on either part, but I answered with what I use most often. For this one, personally I think I would tend to say "Queen" in this exact case, but "Club" (or similar) if it was a low card in dummy.
