Richard Lawson's bidding problem: K864 A4 Q93 AKT4
The rest of the story: At the table, partner did indeed reopen, as I would have. The complete auction: ......1N - 2H - P P - X - P - 2S 3H - P - 4H - AP Making 4. The 2H bidder was 1-6-5-1. Lose ten imps when the other team in a slightly different auction did ...

King Midas in Reverse
After the gift of a spade lead, I would have played exactly as you. Just about guarantees the contract. But just two weeks ago our team lost a match because I was given the world's easiest 3NT contract but won the opening lead in the wrong hand and went ...
King Midas in Reverse

Love to see the wheels start to spin and fit together in kids like this. It's terrific work you're doing.
