Strength of Rosenkranz Double and Redoubles When Using C/1MX, Rubens Advances, Etc.
I think waiting for an Ace or King is wasting a lot of opportunities to help your partner effectively compete for a marginal advantage on lead should you not win the auction. Having shown exactly a doubleton, partner is free to underlead an Ace, and likely have it be the ...
Strength of Rosenkranz Double and Redoubles When Using C/1MX, Rubens Advances, Etc.
I play XX is a 10+ HCP doubleton raise, nothing about honor distribution. I like it fine. I've played Rosenkrantz, but like you found it lacking in competitive auctions.
ATB - Missed Slam
Was double takeout?
Interference over Size Ask/Clubs
Responder's double sounds like invitational to 3NT hand. Responder's 3N very strong with clubs. Opener can double with 5+ tricks including good spades or bid 3N with a big club fit and a stopper. That's just my logic, never actually discussed it.
OK Bridge is far from OK. Agree or Disagree?

Zimmermann Cup semifinal Zimmermann-Assael, segment 2, board 5.
I like the Spade Ten lead. I don't like Multon's inconsistent tempo, nor his middle of the hand fiddling. It seems appropriate to record the behavior as has been done here, and to be alert for it in the future. Even if the behavior is Freudian and not ...
Delayed Double Ambiguity
The double is for penalty. I like the 1S denying 4 but experience limited.

snacks are free. The $1 games must have free rent. Our ACBL sanction is less than rent.

Chris, Spokane just went to a blended $8 rate, no matter what type of game. The owner(Charlie Bennett) runs as many special games as possible, and just takes the hit. Few like haggling over a dollar.
