Mark Jones's bidding problem: AT6 --- AKQ84 AKJ97
You were walking the dog, after partner bid 5C all by himself. Besides, don't you want the other 300 for the extra trick in 7Hx?
I apologize for this question
If one wants the right to use a superior system, shouldn't they be OBLIGATED to disclose what they play? There is no revealing of the specific hand. And the opponents are entitled to know that they play: 1/ penalty doubles or takeout doubles after 2C which may be only ...
