UI Ruling Question
In parallel universe # Catch 22, Chris passed 2 without asking any questions, and then North bid 2, and Chris later said that he would have doubled if 2 had been alerted. North said that he didn't alert because he wasn't sure how his partner meant ...
UI Ruling Question

When partner leads the Ace (playing A from AK) at the 4-level or lower, and dummy hits with Qxx or Qxxx, you only high-low with a doubleton. The most important thing for partner to know is if it is going to go Ace, King, ruff. And so that's what ...
In the Well: Brian Platnick
