Providing Information When Not Asked
The simple answer is say nothing.
How many spades?
If you bid 2 freely over 2 you either have five spades, which you can rebid, or some high cards, with which you wouldn't pass 3.
How many spades?
It's asking for partner to bid 5 over 4 and be wrong.
Steve Fama's bidding problem: A85 QT972 5 A762
He should be void in hearts. We're going to at least six.
Bridge Cheating Scandal - A New Cheat
I'd call it a glitsch.
Flannery Disclosure
Unless you're playing Kaplan Inversion, which is obviously alertable, why on earth would you respond 1NT with six spades? Four I can understand.
Sam Ehrlichman's bidding problem: A754 J A743 A985
Previous bidding largely a matter of style, but this hardly be considered a problem.
Edward Levy's bidding problem: 4 A864 KQ4 KQJ52
I told my story.
Michael Hopkins's lead problem: 2 QJ98652 J KQT9
I voted K but I think there's a fair case for J. It's falling anyway, and you win when you take a diamond ruff or avoid gifting declarer an entryless A.
Who Will Direct the Directors?
I was just giving a generic example.
