Your call--ethical bidding problem
Correct there was no damage. I was just curious what people thought of the bid. I did call the director after the corrected explanation to preserve my rights and South was indignant (and wanted to call the director after going down to have it adjusted to 4 making 5 believe ...
Your call--ethical bidding problem
My bad--1S-2NT-4D-4S-4NT...
Your call--ethical bidding problem
On the same topic, I am curious what people think of this. This came up at a club game today. Red against red, south was dealer and held KQJxxx. AKxx. Q. Jx East/west passed throughout. The auction was 1S-2NT-4D-4NT getting to 6S. I was west. 4S was alerted (improperly ...

Spiral Question
Oren, I think that means with my 3451 hand you agree with 2 spades. I did not see your vote. If you were playing spiral, how would you respond after the 2NT bid. And since you say we should not play spiral and precision, what would you play for responder ...
Spiral Question
Sorry to say, good point. What kind of hand would you re-evaluate and bid 3C then 4S?
Spiral Question
Before I respond, let me just say that I find your comments always well thought out and useful. So thanks for all the time you invest in helping others here. Spiral asks me to further define my hand. The responses are 3C--3 card support and a minimum (remember my range ...
