can you field a psyche based on opponents mannerisms/ questions?
I did score up -900 legitimately in 3NT in a sectional pair game. At unfav, RHO opened 3 and I had a strong NT with Qx and stopper, so I bid 3NT. LHO started by cashing 8 top hearts. I saw that -400 is still worth some matchpoints ...

Howard Liu's bidding problem: --- AT64 K875 J9854
I think partner is extremely unlikely to run with a 2-suiter. For all he knows, we may be making 4S, and/or opener may be about to take it out. I could see a 50(71) hand running after first testing the waters in 4S, but that's about it.
Congratulations to USA Girls Rona Cup Team
FWIW, the players actually submitted their own blurbs.
Open USBC Trials Discussion Thread
Two teams will be eliminated. It's a fairly safe bet that team BYE will be one of the top 12 teams.
