Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Double of Sandwich 1NT
When the opponents start showing suits, we'd best do the same. These auctions become a battle over trump fit. High cards have little to do with "knowing" whether to defend or declare and can almost always be shown by making a strength showing call later.
Avon Wilsmore's bidding problem: K2 A72 J87 QJ976
I'm pretty sure pass is not forcing. Marshall makes reference above about top players being morbidly wary of FP's for good reason. We are a passed hand and showed a raise in clubs. Partner said 4 is a possibility if you have some support there. They were ...

After a Lightner double
In auction 1, the 5 bid could have been made as a lead director or a pattern bid allowing partner to make an informed decision should they visualize a profitable sac. In auction 2, the double of 2 showed some length and strength. It was lead suggestive and ...

Hearts 3-3 and diamonds 2-2. Throw a heart on the A to develop the 12th trick.
Interesting Suit Combination
I think not. How is ATxx / Q9x equivalent to the OP holding of AT3 / Q975?
