about me

Having my bid, putting down a good dummy, making partner's life easy, getting a plus score. Not that concerned about going +170.

None, not because they can't be fun but because they lose IMPS / match-points, particularly in partnerships that practice less than 10-20 hours a week together.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
How do you rule?
It doesn't look like EW had any special agreements or extra inferences beyond what the opponents had. It is obviously essential for bridge that all partnership agreements as well as full inferences are disclosed to the opponents in good faith. This is quite an active role for a player ...
T2 defense

John Newman's bidding problem: Q8752 AJ9 T72 Q4
Imagine partner has something as good as AKxxx xx AKxxx x You have 3 losers. Im bidding 4S because I don't want to encourage partner (and I don't think 4 here is lead directional, even if a lead is better). If your hand was instead something ...
