Sorry, this user has no cards yet.

That double is too clever for me. But how can option#2 above be anything other than idiotic? You double to get an unusual lead and then remove to 6 anyway. Why, because partner didn't double the final contract? Scrub that last sentence. He wasn't even in ...
when you, as opening bidder, have a 3-suited hand, you have shown two of them, and responder bids 4th suit forcing in your 3rd suit. What to do?
As Steve Moese suggests, I think you may have set a record for the longest Bridgewinners title ever. How about "Three suit conundrum"? I have two real man suits, and a wretched excuse for a third. I open one of my real suits. My partners don't bypass five card ...
2C-2D-2S-3NT (opponents silent)
Just do. See Timo's postig beneath.
2C-2D-2S-3NT (opponents silent)
Right on. Regardless of the precise details, 3N should be some kind of major suit raise.
Anyone else not thrilled with the "new" BBO
Has anyone else encountered the "cards coming from random direction problem"? So eg if you are defending, and declarer is in dummy to your left, the next played card comes from your right, even though it was indeed a card in dummy. Amazingly disorienting.
2NT-3!H;3!S-6NT
Perhaps because they don't play Gerber. Perhaps because, even if they did, Gerber would not be able to determine whether opener's queen was in the long suit (xx AQxx AKxx AK no; xx Axx AKQxx AKx yes). Perhaps opener's 7 of a suit suggests bidding 7N if ...
Which card do you play at trick 4?
Actually, i prefer the 2. But certainly.
ATB: Did anyone actually do anything wrong?
If you aren't going to make a takeput double of 2 with that hand, then you might as well not play them.
6NT play problem. Finesses, combinations, squeezes... it's got 'em all
I wonder about the assumption on the lead. What might one lead from J98x? (Indeed, what is the best lead from that holding against any number of notrump). The answer, perhaps, is "some other suit". I'd be interested in a simulation of J98x Qxx Jxxx xx. Perhaps I ...
Forcing or not?
I really don't give a fig about the votes.
