Barry Plotkin's bidding problem: AKx AKJxxx K9xx ---
I don't understand the 2 bids. Do you really eat to risk partner passing 2? 3 is a much superior bid than 2; I would much rather play the latter than the former. That said, 3 is much better than 3 because it ...
Can an invitational-classed club game restrict entry in this manner?
Actually, it's neither of your clubs; it's the one I recently joined after moving here. The game in question has no posted upper limit, but the A bracket is more than 500 master points. At the other club games, the A bracket is more than 2,000 master ...

Donald, as I wrote, it is billed as an invitational game.
Can an invitational-classed club game restrict entry in this manner?
I'm the person that Barry referred to. "Top ten players" is not quite accurate. I'm not sure how the cutoff is determined; it could be players of 1000 or more master points, or it could be higher. It's not the number of players, though. And it is ...
Board 27 from the 03/28/2018 Common Game
After E opens 1D in 4th seat, and W bids 1H, what should N call?
Does this auction imply a club stopper?
I was S and had KQx in clubs, a spade stopper, and no heart stopper.
Does this auction imply a club stopper?
I'm the opening bidder, and I bid 3S. My rationale is that after an inverted minor suit raise, you bid stoppers up the line to try to get to a NT contract. (An inverted raise is not a game force, though; only a one-round force.) With that in mind ...
Does this auction imply a club stopper?
After an inverted minor raise, the normal procedure is to cue bid stoppers, looking for a NT game. If opener didn't have clubs stopped, it would be suicidal to cue bid a major at the 3 level to try to find a NT game. Therefore, 3S must be showing ...
Does this auction imply a club stopper?
With six diamonds and five spades, I would think that the bid would be 4S, not 3S.
What is your plan?
Does it matter that the 1NT bid was actually in 4th seat, and not in 1st seat as shown here?
