Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: T8xx --- AKQxxx xxx
Of course. The question here is whether the hand is enough even after stretching, and whether double would necessarily land into a right spot.
Dear GIB can we please take this bid off the card???
I was talking about unpassed hands. For passed hand, I play that 3 is fit-showing.
Jacoby 2NT?
What does "self-sufficient" mean? If it means a suit like KQJTxxx, why didn't open something earlier?
Should bridge go green?
People who think "online is a paradise for cheating" mistakenly assume that "online" means playing from sofa at one's living room with no one else around. No, any serious online tournament will require a designated location where a standard device (such as iPad) is provided (ideally not owned by ...
What does this double mean. I have no idea.
If you use 2NT as takeout, obviously you can retain X as penalty. But then you lose good/bad 2NT. So, you have 3 types of hands but 2 bids, something has to give up.

Apportion of blame
Suppose North bids 4, but ends up down 1 because K is off. Are we going to have another ATB? In MP, 3 making 4 is not the end of the world.
What does this 4NT bid mean?
Actually OP didn't say who is "me" who is "partner". But ok for argument's sake say I am the 4NT bidder, partner bid 4. Just because partner didn't look for 3NT, doesn't mean NT isn't the best strain. Partner has a hand that is ...
The GNT's, a modest proposal
The masses can play in flight A, B, or C. They can challenge Meckwell in the championship flight, but they don't have to. This is almost like having your cake and eating it too, it is the most attractive part of GNT (to me anyway). I think the low ...
