Michal Czerwonko's bidding problem: 4 AT98743 A64 T3
Pass? Are you guys on sleeping pills? We need almost nothing for slam when partner is 5314. RKC should have been near 100%. My only objection is 2 was meek, but... it sure looks like it worked.
Hypothetical UI question

Junk Stayman with 4-4 Majors

Playing up in KO's - what am I missing?
It depends on the team, but your point is taken.
Playing up in KO's - what am I missing?
well, has to be out of several if 2000 average is 3rd/4th.
Is this AI or UI?
Kit is pretty level headed. I suspect if he rereads the thread he will come to his senses. David is well known for his positions on how he thinks things ought to be rather than how they are. For Laws interpretations, I prefer to listen to Henrik, and it would ...
