Stan Christie's bidding problem: AJ6 AQ9653 54 A7
Well the votes are in, and over 70% went for the direct cue bid. At the table, I bid 3, and the auction continued pass-4-pass. I guess partner was 2 suited, so I should have bid 4, presumably ending the auction. But no, I countered with 4 ...
Multiple versions of a bidding or lead poll

I also believe this was a no-brainer problem, but wanted to check to see if anyone could come up with another call. Thanks for your responses.
ATB -620 instead of +620
I held the west cards in this deal and voted that west was at fault, but the auction shown is not completely accurate. West dealt and passed, then the auction proceeded as above. This presents west with an additional option to cuebid 3 hearts en route to 4 spades, showing ...
