Awkward fourth suit forcing auction
How do you resolve the huge difference between 1 and 2 after bidding 3 with both?
Awkward fourth suit forcing auction
Ben - how can opener have spades when they raise 2 to 3 in this auction? Wouldn't opener have already rebid 1? Edit: just read your comment above. So with KQx x AKxxx Qxxx you would raise to 3 rather than bid 2NT?
Long and winding road
I played an embarrassingly bad line at the table so you really don't want to! I'm convinced by winning in hand and playing a club, which one seems a little complicated but small to the 10 likely best.
Extract the maximum
No, I don't think so. Maybe if they thought that game was not on even opposite 22-23 balanced? Haven't really thought much about it.

Thank you for your detailed work on this Wayne.
WBF accepted proposal for proving honesty of organization
Hans - Phil Markey isn't being serious with his comments above :) Normal Australian banter
Assign the blame - 3NT failing while slam makes
OK Michael, fair point. It would be better to say either "the hand record reveals that 6 could make double-dummy" or "looking at the North-South reveals that 6 had play". I won't dig my hole deeper by committing to either of those though! I think we can ...
Interview with WBF President Rona
You're right Peter - it is a great photo! Thanks for letting me know about your ownership of the photo, I wasn't sure who to credit it to. I have sent you a private message.
A very basic auction?
Not the wrong question for me, Eric. I think getting the 2 bid in is more important than worrying about the problems later. But I do still have to deal with the problems later; hence, the poll!
