Paula Leslie's bidding problem: QJT9xx AKx Qx xx
I'm speculating here but... I think the reason for inverting is that you give the opener an extra spade bid which means their support bids are better defined rather than actually being able to play in 1♠ Plus you get the advantage of having the 1♥ bidder on lead ...

Wrong place!
Playing Weak NT. How to bid after 1m=1M with 4 card support.
With one partner in a 5cM WNT context we played a 1NT rebid could contain 4 card support if 4333 only. Probably a Klinger idea as we were playing Keri at the time over both 1NT openings and rebids. Cannot remember any gains or losses from it though.

Three-card major suit openings by Jais and Trezel
"won" in inverted commas as if board 40 of the semi final had been scored correctly then Germany would have lost to Canada. There was also some debate at the time as to if the methods were legal.
Mixed Open Pairs Final - Session 2
I don't understand your comments on board 20 re scoring 0 for a 1NT bid. Is partner really going to pass it?
Mastering the Robots
Emily - Funbridge has it's own engine so the bots are different to BBO. From what I have experienced they play a pretty good game. From memory I haven't come across any of the situations Steve describes while playing Funbridge tournaments.
