Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What is your ruling?
Ah, yes. Brain cramp. Good point by you.
What is your ruling?

Deb Dhar's bidding problem: AJT A52 97 AJ843
x, kjt9, akqt9,xxx? I don't play mini-roman. Could you bid it on that? I would think most precision players would open that 1 (planning to rebid 2 lying about length). Perhaps they hadn't had a chance to trot out the mini-roman for a while ...
Deb Dhar's bidding problem: AJT A52 97 AJ843
