Simon Mostyn's bidding problem: --- A87 AK64 AQ9742
My thought process at the table was that with a void it was quite likely that LHO would raise. I thought I would be better placed after p - (2) - 3- (3! / 4) - p - p (when I can describe my extra values and approximate shape nicely ...
A bad start
I let North change their bid unless I am certain that North would not allow me to change my call had the situation been reversed.
Utility of a 3-card super-accept raise over Jacoby Transfers and a Strong NT
Brett, if you don’t open a strong NT with Andy’s hand, assuming natural rebids, you have created a difficult (some would say impossible) rebid problem for yourself after 1 - 1M. Nor do you have a clear-cut rebid after 1 - 2.

For me, the 2 rebid already confirmed 6 hearts in opener's hand, but that's a question of style of course. Depends on whether opener's reverses (e.g. 1 - 2 - 2 ) show extras - I now play that they don't and 2NT is the ...
Bermuda Bowl Q&A
Very enjoyable discussion, thanks both!
Principle of Fast Arrival
Michael, I would definitely rebid 3 with your example hand - 5 positive controls and the Q of trumps must be too good for fast arrival even with a "minimum".
Jacoby 2NT?
Maximum passed hand with 4-card support and some shape. Flat 4-card raises use Drury.
