Jyri Tamminen's bidding problem: 54 A2 KQT73 KT92
E was throwing curve balls, he had 1516. Partner's hand was KQJTxx - AJxxx Qx, so his reluctance to double was based on heart void.
Forcing pass situation or not?
I read a TBW from early 1990´s yesterday. In Master Solvers Club there was this problem: Qxx Txx xxx Qxxx. RHO opens 1, we pass, LHO bids 1NT and X from partner, pass. Passing got the most votes, 12.

Counting HCP or Cover Cards and Tricks
It is more useful do distinguish 5-5 from 5-6 or 6-5 when of shape NT openings areso popular so it is not rare for opener to have doubleton in both long suits.
What does 4NT mean here?
I couldnt figure out any other meaning for 4 here.
"Table feel"
Quite often the mere fact that kibizers are not leaving during an ordinary looking deal tells most of the story. And that is quite easy to pick up even with lousy table feel.
