Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: T6 J4 AK83 AKQ84
I think if I were to treat this hand as balanced, I would open it 1 and rebid 2nt. Forced to choose between 1nt and 2nt, I would probably go with 2nt. K & R gives this hand a 19.60: http://www.jeff-goldsmith.org/cgi-bin/knr.cgi?hand=106 ...
Save Bundy's Sanity
Yeah, didn't think you were and I think we're on same page. Maybe someone who knows the laws better can chime in, but I would think if it's not obvious that you made a mechanical error etc. partner has to treat any fumbling with bid cards etc ...

Special Bridge Rate
All of the rates I was quoted from the website are more expensive (not much more though). My biggest complaint for regionals/sectionals is that often times the rooms in their block are not as nice as others. Recently I booked online for roughly $120 and then called hotel and ...
Jack Hawthorne's bidding problem: --- K96 AJ9643 KJ95
To me, it makes more sense for the bid that takes up more space to be more descriptive
Once again, something new
Yeah, not sure what I was thinking. That seems best when S has K (if N does you might do better to not finesse a second time immediately?) If N played the J/10 I might be tempted to finesse in hearts.
Once again, something new
Won’t that lose to kxx though of spades though when N has three? What do you do if N plays the heart ten on first heart?
