Lame Claims
Declarer's claim license should be revoked for some meaningful period of time in both cases, even though both should result in garnering all of the tricks. Thanks for the chuckle, Roger!
Dutch Spiral
Thanks, MK - I missed that!
Dutch Spiral
Simple rules! I like this structure, and can even play it opposite precision 1d opener. Just an observation, in the sequences involving using the next step asking for stoppers (NLHB) have you considered inverting the responses to BLHN, or LHBN? This would push the N beyond 3NT, which doesn't ...
What bridge really needs to become relevant again.
Oh, to be alive 50 (or so) years from now when humanity rediscovers the game of bridge and launches into the "new renaissance" of the game, totally reincarnated with autonomous playing interfaces, full-disclosure aids, advanced bidding methods available to to new and intermediate players, and (add whatever improvement you like ...

WBF Response on Fantoni Eligibility
Al Levy, thanks for sharing this with the BW community in such a timely fashion.
You be the Judge
I credited east with 100% of the blame: a) Unless west is a known psycher, East can see virtually all of the high cards between west, north, and east. Therefore, ducking the club risks blocking the suit. South can have at most a queen. b) It must be important to ...
