Stig Holmquist's bidding problem: KT862 AKJ83 83 A
It might be interesting to see the South hand and the bids. South held AQx-Qxxxx- Axxx-Q and the bidding was 1H-2S- 3S-4C-4D-7H. North never asked for Aces nor for Kings. Down one. If the bidding had been 1H-2NT-3C-4NT-5H-5NT-6C then N would have known that the pair was missing 2 Kings ...
Jacoby 2 NT response
By conducting the slam investigation at two levels lower and learning most of what you need, there is plenty of room to ask for additional info without overbidding.
Quick Trick Step Bids
Why can't the strong responder just show what is above 4 or 5 with the San Fransisco bid and thus keep the bidding lower?
Small typeing
And yes, the problem has probably been caused by pressing Ctrl+ instead of Shift and not realizing the error. My computer skills are at best rudimentary and my typing is one finger at a time. So I make lots of mistakes.

My son has 30 years of computer experience, but was unable to help. Pressing Ctrl+ worked wonders. Thanks Gordon
No 4-card suit
Yes, you are right. I just realized that there are other ways of getting 9 4-card suits in a deal, E.g. N has 4-4-1-4, S has 3-4-2-4, E has 4-1-4-4 and W has 2-4-7-1. Likewise, if N has 4-4-1-4 and S has the same, while E has 4-1-4-4 then ...
No 4-card suit
I'm beginning to wonder if one can deal so that there are no deals with 9.10 or 11 four card suits. I just tested 9 print outs from ACBL games and counted all 4-card suits per deal and, and Then I calculated the % for each kind, and plotted ...
No 4-card suit
No ordinary textbook mentions the Fisher-Cornish distribution. It's math is far beyond my understanding. But it would be interesting to see the actual distribution of 0 to 12 4-card suits after million deals. I lack any kind of ability to program such a computer search. Maybe somebody cares enough ...
No 4-card suit
Sorry about the typo of your name. Would you be able to establish the frequencies for each number of no 4-card suit per 100, 1000, 10000, 100000 and 1000000 deals. One could then determine if the distribution is Binomial or Poisson type. A complete tabulation for 1 million deals would ...
No 4-card suit
Hi Hans, Now we are making progress. Can you please tell me how the numbers were obtained? Have they been published as part of another discussion? My own counts don't agree with 1.54%. So I would suggest that a computer program be written to count the number of ...
