Falling numbers in Orlando
I considered Orlando seriously but having been to an NABC there I looked at the extras expense wise. Resort fees and parking were not clear at the time I had to decide, dining options, entry fees/session etc. If they had 1/2 a brain they would hold this in ...
Treatments over 1NT with 5-card major
We don't do much and often play in 3nt with our 5-3 major fits. After stayman and say, 2 then 2nt by partner we bid 3 forcing to show the 5-bagger but can choose to play 3nt instead depending on honour distribution if we don't own ...
Deportment -- who's at fault?

Do You Have Any Fun/Funny Lesson Hands for Intermediates?
Just as a quick ice breaker I have laid out the James Bond hand at all tables and walked them through the story and the play. Cross ruffing and suit establishment while efficiently drawing trumps get a mention as well as the fact that the hand is claimed so early ...
1S or 2C? Which one is more common in experts?
Raising responders suit is supposed to solve problems and lead to a comfortable auction most of the time. If my 2 bid were raised here I would gag.
The sneak
Years ago my partner opened 1, lho bid 2nt and I closed things with 4. Partner won the opening lead (may have been a stiff spade) and led a low club from something like KJ982 to dummies stiff 6 or 7. Winning.
