Partner misdescribed my bid. Did I do the right thing?
On the first hand, assuming your 4 call can be a game only hand, you know from partner's 4 call that he has mis-interpreted your 4 call. This is AI, and it matches the UI, so you are free to do anything you want. At least ...
Sabrina Miles's bidding problem: AKx --- AQxxx KJxxx
3NT has only one way to win (vs. 4NT), namely when there are 9 tricks in notrump and fewer than 11 tricks in 5 of a minor. 3NT has many ways to lose: You might be off the heart suit, when 5 or 6 of a minor makes. There might ...
commentating on other table
I want to thank everybody for voting. The vote was so clear that I do not plan on changing what I have been doing when commentating regarding the action at the other table. The small minority who prefer to be kept in suspense will just have to live with it.

No, the king is not an alarm clock signal. It simply shows solidity in the suit. Inventing something like that at the table is the way to have an accident, even if you might win the post-mortem. As I said, West should have gotten it right. But East should have ...

Equal Honors
When I am declarer, I routinely ask the opponents about their leads and signals as the dummy is coming down. I do so even if I was just declarer the previous hand. I believe any declarer who fails to determine the carding methods of the opponents does so at his ...
Partner can have anything he wants. I have limited and described my hand, and he is in charge of the auction. Obviously I will initially bid under the assumption that he has some hearts, but if I raise hearts and he goes elsewhere that is his business and it is ...
Problem on defense. Is it clear?
It is clear from partner's heart discard that declarer has a 4-card heart suit, since partner would never discard a heart from any 4-card holding. This makes declarer's shape 4-4-4-1. It is also clear that declarer's diamond holding is KJxx, since without the jack of diamonds declarer ...
Equal Honors
The signaling methods at trick 2 don't really matter, since East is known to not have enough length in spades to give a meaningful signal in spades.
Equal Honors
Yes. E-W play multi.
