Oren Kriegel's lead problem: T87543 876 5 842
yes, after the recent rule change

Seems unlikely they can take 13 tricks without using diamonds at all
BW 2/1: 100% GF?
I am not sure I follow as this has been worded. If you mean that the absolutely-GF agreement is LESS PRONE TO POTENTIAL ethical problems than one which grants latitude to bail without clearly specifying the exact range of situations where that is allowed, naturally your point is granted.

Tough decision. If partner has a few clubs, we may need to bid now -- he is just going to pass it out in 3C holding the likes of: Txx KQTx Q9x Axx. If partner is short(ish) in their suit Pass might be better, but how well placed would we ...
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: KT9x Kx JTx Q9xx
OK while we are on the topic of who is more likely to have what, I would like to offer yet another reason for favoring a 1N advance. Bidding spades is mainly eligible to yield a satisfactory result when partner has four of them -- and as noted elsewhere, even if ...
