Bridge Winners You Hold App Released
Great recent additions! I had not checked for a month or so, and was pleasantly surprised to find the commenting available.
Negative double distribution
Side note: if you play Reverse Flannery, be sure to discuss if RF is "on" after a 1 overcall. That answer would tend to impact the answer to the OP question. FWIW, my partnership initially played RF here, but we now play 2M as WJS.
The Reviews Are In - Battling the Best

You will likely encounter more interference, so if not already playing something like Rubensohl, you should consider it.

Craig Biddle's bidding problem: J 73 AKQ9 AJ8432
Presume Craig meant 6.
The worst card ever played(?) and two other smiles
At the club some 30+ years ago we bid to 6, which made only when LHO led the (offside) singleton K! He claimed I would have dropped it anyway.
