Blind Spot
In the diagram on the first problem situation, dummy has one more diamond than it should have.
Unauthorized Information (UI)
Thank you Dean. Now we are getting to the crux of the matter. I totally agree with you that a player should make the correct call, UI or not. If it could be demonstrated that bidding 3 has a 65% success rate, then definitely the bid is permitted. The ...
After The 1NT Rebid Is Doubled
You fail to include my meaning, which is: non-existent
Unauthorized Information (UI)
Dean, I'm not asking about your opinion as to what East should bid. I can easily see how bidding again could be right, although if West has something like K10xxx Kxxx xx !Kx (a hand I know I would overcall on) then 3 might be in considerable jeopardy ...
Best line(s) for this 6NT from STAC?
I would definitely cash 4 clubs pitching a heart. This extracts 3 discards from the opponents and retains all my finesse and squeeze options. Then I might either: Cross to my hand with a spade and take a heart finesse. If RHO started with 2 spades or started with 3 ...
When an artificial enquiry has been doubled
The problem with this suggestion is that it makes the business redouble a unilateral decision. Usually it is better for partner to have a voice about whether he gets to play a redoubled contract in his artificially bid suit.
Unauthorized Information (UI)

Puppet 2!c
We can bid 3 of a minor to show a 6-card minor. We can bid 2NT to show 5-4 minors, minimum. We can bid 3 or 3 to show 5-4 minors, non-minimum, stopper in bid major. Or we can bid 3NT to show 5-4 minors, non-minimum, stoppers in ...
Puppet 2!c
I've been playing 2 Puppet Stayman in response to our strong 1NT opening for almost 40 years, so I do know something about it. Locating a 5-card major in opener's hand is a very minor by-product. The conceptual reason for playing Puppet Stayman is somewhat similar to ...
When an artificial enquiry has been doubled
We play the following: Pass = no stopper (and then balancing redouble is a repeat of the inquiry) Bid = stopper, otherwise the same bid we would have made with no double Redouble = business This approach keeps us on the same track as if no double, with the extra information about whether ...
