ATB for this disaster
"Did I even say that is the way it is played by everyone or that it is even a good way to play?" Mike M, your earliest comments (and Steve's) contained no qualifiers that what you were expressing were your own opinions, and not consensus practice, i.e. "Khokan ...
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
Regardless of who misunderstood whom in the conversation, it seems like a minor effort by the ACBL would be required to keep a member happy. Poor follow-up by the ACBL.
Khokan Bagchi's bidding problem: KQTx KJT JT9x xx
David Parsons's bidding problem: K 94 KT98742 732
Partner should be 6-5, at least, so the possibility of a big diamond fit is remote. I don't want partner to bid 5H/5S, so double seems best. I'll pay out to Axxxx AKQxx Axx void, or similar.
Declarer play problem

ATB for this disaster
"Kokhan, Mike and I are on the same page here. " I know. The issue is whether it's the best one.
ATB for this disaster
Steve/Mike, I disagree. A GF hand can continue with 3C over 2D. An invitational hand with a diamond fit raises diamonds. As to the advancer raising 2NT to 3NT, I wouldn't.
YBTJ-spade game missed?
Marty, you're missing the point. When there's such a large variance in the EV of a hand, as is the case when holding an extreme shape for our bidding (a parallel might be when we hold xx xx xx KQxxxxx opposite partner's 1NT opener), there's little ...
YBTJ-spade game missed?
"There are still pope who would not open weak 2 with a 3 M" Which pope, specifically? It's bad enough that the Vatican intrudes on our moral beliefs, let alone how we should play bridge.
