Who Will Direct the Directors?
(1) The 3-card Major did not deviate from agreements. Only the explanation did so. (2) IMHBAICO, we aren't going far ENOUGH. It is inadequate to say "every once in a while it could be 3 cards", or whatever, because that blurs a crucial distinction among the following: a) The ...
Selena Pepić's bidding problem: 32 KQJT953 8 J63
The best use of a Namyats distinction is not strength-based, but rather based on positionality. Decide which partner should play 4M.
Selena Pepić's bidding problem: JT98762 A 8 Q764
(1) Not sure colors are that important for putting opponents to the last guess. (2) In your view, which call is it that puts opponents in that position? (3) If partner has that perfect 8-count, and I have this shape and my total of HCP, the opponents are massive favorites ...

I believe, perhaps erroneously, that most serious pairs play some methods (e.g. transfers) over an opponent's non-penalty double at this level, hence I was surprised to find no annotations next to the bidding diagram. At the very least I would have expected to see an indication of what ...
Selena Pepić's bidding problem: JT98762 A 8 Q764
4S is likely to endplay them into doubling for a good result their way, but obviously it could be a big success for us too. With more than half the points bottled up in a singleton the hand is not perfect for any pre-empt really, but it would be eccentric ...

Shireen -- I must be having a bad-brain day, but I am not clear what point you are trying to make with your list. Care to know, so please enlighten. (PS -- If it matters, that Croatian "6" was originally meant to be "8", but a technical glitch resulted in the shorter ...
Who Will Direct the Directors?
I have the utmost respect (as well as personal affection) for PO but he is charged with an absolutely monumental task. It is just impossible for one person -- or even a small team -- to go through something like 100 CCs, often together with supplementary pages, and satisfactorily ensure that they ...
