Ray Fink's bidding problem: Q85 JT2 AK72 643
NS were not playing Drury. South thought 1NT might matchpoint well across from a light 3rd seat opening, and if N showed signs of life S would invite game in hearts. Not the choice I would have made, but I think it is a reasonable one. (This was the opponents ...
Ray Fink's bidding problem: J7 J4 6532 KJT96
Seems there are three logical alternatives here: 3, 4, Pass. There was a BIT before North's 2 call. Does the BIT demonstrably suggest one of these LAs? (This was a low-level small-town club duplicate where BIT issues are not enforced, but I thought this an interesting ...
Ray Fink's bidding problem: Q85 JT2 AK72 643

However friendly the game, however inept the standard of play, I don't want to give players the impression that "it's okay to revoke when it wouldn't have mattered." And I am not willing to have director calls in the future where the revoking side wants a "no ...
Ray Fink's bidding problem: AQ8 --- AT97 AQT765
At the table it seemed that a 2 raise would not help solve the crux of the problem: does partner have the kings I need? I wanted to be in a club slam across from any hand that held the K, and went straight for 4 exclusion. LHO ...
What do you lead from J982? (Modified)
I chose the deuce, but immediately looked into Bird and Anthias Winning Notrump Leads. A couple of similar hands in Chapter 3 suggest the nine might be better by a very thin margin
Table feel vs Cheating
If it is table feel, instead of the other thing, then a very large amount of data would likely show that said players do better against some opponents (the more readable ones) than other less leaky opponents.
Super-accepting after 1NT opener
Super-accept by showing the cheapest control. For us, 4 trumps and upper end of range. Responder can sign off via re-transfer.
