David Yates's bidding problem: AT32 T9 43 AKJ83
The Blue Team only doubled here when partner was not bidding diamonds. It's a gamble otherwise, and I don't like giving the other team a chance to win by mis-describing my hand.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
An electronic playing environment is the answer. Eliminates most cheating, and replays can be edited to provide a delayed watchable event. Similar to the beginning use of screens (when they were only used in later phases of an event), the electronic environment might begin with the quarter-finals of major KO ...
Wednesday's common game
Play low at trick one, intending to finesse the spade again to discard a club. The club finesse is about 50-50, but one of the spade honors onside is about 75%.
1m - 2M your choice.
Unhappy with some problems associated with reverse flannery, I went for the most frequent choice of 4-4 (11-12 hcp)or 4-5 (10-12hcp). This curtailed enemy overcalls and left us in the driver's seat, useful, while coming up much more often.
Jyri Tamminen's bidding problem: QJT8 32 A432 AQ4
When the dummy appeared, an opportunity for the old chestnut, "What happened to the hand you had during the auction?" AKXXX AQJXX XX X {You can never say this, and it's probably better not to even think it.}
Steve Stewart's bidding problem: QJ64 K5 JT AQT76
1NT. With a 12+-16 range, 2 can inquire size/majors. {Responses 2=weak & no majors, 2M=weak with major(s), 2N=15-16 & can re-stayman}.
Phillip Martin's bidding problem: A9652 J83 AQJ6 9
I "liked" Peg's comment because she bid something other than 3, although 2NT does have some space-saving advantage over 3, allowing 1-2-2-2-2N-3-3 sequence which may be a better exchange of information.
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: AJT642 QT8 AQJ 7
Different meanings for the redouble can certainly be defined by different partnerships. The "second-round control" meaning has been common for a long time in the US {edit: ...in the group of players who have a definite agreement}, but alternative partnership definitions could work as well. The redouble here would show ...
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: AJT642 QT8 AQJ 7
Agree with Jim--Failure to redouble denies a singleton club with heart support, so mandatory to begin with redouble.
