May you bid after partner's hesitation
This happened to me. My partner wanted to call the director and I refused because I thought the bid was automatic. The next day, my partner said that the four experts who were asked all said that East should not have bid.
Can You Explain This Auction...?
How does 3nt look without 109 of hearts? Even 2nt is in jeopardy on a heart lead and south would always bid 3.
John Solodar, RIP
About 50 years ago,many of the young experts in the New York area were given animal nicknames- The hog (Ron Anderson),pig (Bernie Chazen),ant (Norman Kurlander),dolphin (John Bookstaver),squirrel (Merle Tom),rabbit (Harold Lillie), giant rabbit (Harry Stappenback),beagle (Joel Stuart) are the ones that I remember.

Is this 2NT Alertable?
Playing in the National LM pairs many years ago with a young talented player not yet known, I picked up xxxx xx xxxx Qxx with all vul. I was in 2nd chair. It went 1H-P-1S-2c 2S- P - 3S -3nt (by partner in tempo) 4S -p-p- long huddle b4 partner doubled ...
Is it an attitude or count signal?
