Realistic or Too Fantastic
How so, Craig? Assuming South began with 3 hearts and 2 clubs, suppose West continues the spade attack. By switching to his (4-card) club suit upon winning the d10, East ensures at least 3 round-suit tricks to add to 2 d tricks.
Realistic or Too Fantastic
Yup, it’s pretty much on West to decide whether an active defense figures to be necessary.
James Tyner's bidding problem: --- AKQJ AKJ8532 K8
It would be a bummer to go down in 6D on a club ruff.
James Tyner's bidding problem: --- AKQJ AKJ8532 K8
(Many play 3C as natural.) I agree with those confident that 1D won’t end the auction.
Andrzej Matuszewski's lead problem: Q63 KJ84 AJ7 K76
(The theme, composed by Lalo Schifrin, was perfection itself.)

I’ll get started on my expatriation arrangements right away.

Why the dire need to specify “constructive” when the likelihood of East-West’s being allowed to play a making game is so low?
YBTJ (and Jury?) - Regional Swiss Teams
Absent an available conventional 3C jump-shift, suit solidity is not a necessary condition for the sequence.
YBTJ (and Jury?) - Regional Swiss Teams
Michal, most players are quite happy to loan you their 3S bid if missing from your bid-box. ;-)
Can Korkmaz's bidding problem: AJxxx J9xx Ax xx
Not “redundant”: sometimes one refers to the original post, sometimes to its author.
