Todd Holes's bidding problem: AJT AQJ96 K9 AQ5
3S. You know why, Todd! but seriously, just showing that I actually have spades, but don't want to close out at 3nt.
BW 2/1: Opener's 2M Rebid
If anyone is interested, I have tried this process for the Intermediate Advanced Club in BBO (with help from some others who I'm not sure want to be associated with the result!). The link below is a spreadsheet with a basic 2/1 system outlined. As you no doubt ...

Why do you play bridge?
Addiction. I will be pushing for BPD (Bridge Playing Disorder, obviously) to be included in the next revision of the DSM. That's my substitute for the A in the BASIC.
Screen Design and Production
Snark Alert!: Make the screens electronic.
FYI - suction exception by districts 22, 23 and 17 ends Jan 1st (or so we were told)..
I was at the PS Regional myself and, out of curiosity, was one of those director calls at the prealert a rather loud and angry one at the start of a session? There was one such director call and it caused quite a stir amongst the rest of us because ...
