Lame Claims
I'm having them ruff and underruff now, so I don't see why that case is different. Btw, I reread the poll and realized I was supposed to answer as a defender, not a director. As a defender, I would not call the director in any of these cases ...
Lame Claims
I think there is a HUGE difference betweeen these two cases. In the first case, declarer is probably in a perfectly normal frame of mind. Most of the time, there is no reason why their claim would be wrong, and thus there is no reason to think they could ever ...
TD please
but to answer your question Norman, it is standard to play that a single-jump in this case is a very strong bid, but is not forcing. In order to force absolutely, you must double, then cuebid, then bid a new suit.
Is it forcing?
fair enough, I guess I was answering based on my current notes (which don't have such a section), rather than standard (which, as I'm often told by certain people, I have "gaps" in)
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: AK3 8 AK9863 K74
It would be nice if 3H showed this hand, but I obviously can't bid it without agreement that it's not some 5-6 (maybe reverse than rebid would be some 5-6 of different strength...). 3D is slightly under, but normal enough, and it does at least give partner a ...
Is it forcing?
I would say forcing is standard only on the basis that it's forcing without the double and I like the general agreement that unless we specifically know otherwise, doubles don't change our agreements. In practice, I don't think it matters much whether it's forcing or not.
The four Queens Problem.
Also you'll be hard pressed to pick up the heart suit ending in the dummy with the lead currently in your hand. After your suggested first two tricks, it is actually pretty difficult to even succeed. Better is to not block the spades, at trick 1, but if you ...
Assess the Blame: getting to 6!C
Not so improbable that ypure off 2 keycards, given partners failure to cuebid.
A Cool Hand fron the Gold Coast
Don't I win the ace and claim the rest? Assuming rho followed to first club
Assign the blame
I disagree that 5s is ridiculous, or even necessarily wrong. E has a void, so E bid
