Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: K92 J86 T32 JT97
I am quite happy with this development
Roland Wald R.I.P.
He was the voice of BBO for so many of us. I'll miss him sadly.
Up the Ante
Page 2: even if he doesn't have club support, since a follow-up 2♥ call would not show extra strength. I suppose "diamond support" is meant. Very interesting analysis, thanks!

Weirdest Bid
Just had a similar experience two days ago: 1 by partner, x to my right, xx by me; 1 left, x by partner, 2(!) to my right. Pass, Pass, x again - now 3(!!) to my right. This finally went for +300 with no game for us ...
Bridge in fiction
In "The light fantastic" by Terry Pratchett DEATH himself learns to play bridge - with the Apocalyptic Riders as his companions. Highly enjoyable - as all of Sir Terry's fiction, may he rest in peace!
