ATB - Just another missed slam
I'm with Brad. 5 immediately describes the North hand very well.
Technical question: is this 3!h bid forcing
If OHO passes then next time I'll leave him in 2.
Instead of wasting time calling the director I would suggest that you focus on how to extract penalties from that kind of trick cycling. Don't bother looking for help in these pages; no matter who doubles or when they will always play it for takeout. Edit: I really should ...
Trick 2 decision and carding
The method whereby "suit preference when dummy holds a singleton in the suit led" is simplistic, and ill-founded. There are several reasons for continuing the suit of the opening lead: to promote a trump trick, either immediately or later; to remove a latent entry to dummy; to setup a late ...
ATB missed slam
I think that 1 , and 2 are about the only bids I agree with. I need a better suit than that as W to bid 3; I don't play that 4 is a cue bid; I do play that 4 shows support; I would ...

The demise of "whether"
When I posted this I did not expect that it would attract much attention; after all, it was not about bridge. I am stunned by so many posts. Thanks to everyone who commented.
List of possible doubles/situations?
I especially like clause#2. That will come as no surprise to anyone.
Assess the Blame: getting to 6!C
Given that slam is still pretty good even when N does not hold the K ( 21 and not worse than 42 or 30 and 33) it seems as though South should just drive to slam. That is especially true when N does not bid 4. Is 4 ...
