Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: K9 AQ74 QJT765 5
I agree with Phillip completely. They are in the same class - and double should be penalty on both. In 40+ years of playing this style I have never encountered a problem such as you suggest, David - where I need a flexible call and don't have one. There's always ...
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: K9 AQ74 QJT765 5
You have a good point MIchael. But there is one instance where 2S makes sense - when partner is very weak with the other two suits. It seems counterproductive to discuss bidding based on a misunderstanding. Better to assume we know what's going on. FWIW, my own partnerships are on ...

Mark Lair - A Class Act
Jack: I couldn't agree more. My own experience with Mark Lair mirrors yours. Always courteous, with ethics above reproach. I recall overhearing him summoning a director to his table to tell him that he had seen an opponent's card and couldn't play the board. I don't ...
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: AK98x Jx KQ9xx x
I've only glanced at the comments - hard to read because I'm in hospital on strong pain meds - so perhaps someone has already said some or all of this - sorry for any redundancy. In a " fairly light opening bids" context the hand is way more than a minimum thus ...
All the Clues
I thought the same at first but it costs a trick because east will have no entry in the ending and a spade will be pitched on the 4th club.
