slip of the tongue ?

Who should have pushed harder?
From Oren's list: [b]"No SST by a hand whose last call was a natural notrump bid"[/b] When I have discussed this we have agreed that after 1x 1y 1N 3y, that 3N is NS. But otherwise this is a good rule. [b]When we agree a major ...
Phil Clayton's bidding problem: 987xx A42 KQTxx ---
I thought it was a good problem and x'd. Partner had KQ, KTx, AJxx, T9xx and decided to float it. There was basically a 2-way guess for the T, but we let declarer off easy.
