How many !d cards does this 2!d bid show?
That's a very bad thing to do in standard. In precision, with partner being limited, wrongsiding 1nt is no big deal. In standard, after 1n you may end up in 3nt and wrongsiding that could be terrible.
Speedball Claim
There are lots of reasons claims are rejected, the top reasons are in my opinion 1) they can't figure out how to click the button to accept a claim 2) they are wondering what you are going to do with the low clubs in the dummy You are thinking ...

A junior defense
It's obvious that declarer doesn't have the ace of spades. When you hold qt in clubs and declarer finesse as their first action, they must have a 43 or 44 fit, but missing the qtxxx{x} they might only be able to get 1 additional trick from the ...
Calling all Bergen Raisers!
With 4333 and minimum it's usually right to treat the hand as a 3 card raise since you have no ruffing value, the 4th trump carries less weight. Just like with 5332 you don't need to leap to 4M. Forcing to the 3level with this hand vul at ...
