Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What's the correct ruling?
If I am not mistaken they do if the clubs are bad.
Ronald Kalf's lead problem: 875 A964 Q42 T92
I expect partner to be (near) broke, and I hope that by suggesting longish clubs I get to make my Q.
What does this rebid mean?
Traditionally the meaning of this sequence is minimal not forcing. With a better hand pass first and then rebid spades. In this approach both partners play penalty doubles after this start. However... Recently we have been experimenting with take-out doubles in both hands after this start. Consequently, if you adopt ...
Calling all Mathematicians: Specious Reasoning in Probability?
I have always thought that when faced with a guess like this (in the trump suit), it is slightly better to play 2nd hand NOT to have a void. (He might have acted with a void.)

What is the best line of play?
See, I still have a lot to learn. Presenting problems in te proper way ia one of them.
What is the best line of play?
Sorry, This was my first post ever and I didn't realize that this information was relevant. The bidding was (EW pass throughout) N: 1-2(Inverted)-3(minimum unbalanced)-3(values)-3(values)-key cards-6. EW use upside down carding and 4th best leads ...
Is Lebensohl on after (2M)-P-(P)-X-(P)-?
Even though a natural 2NT is missed more than as a response to a direct double, the raison d'être for a conventional 2NT, i.e., mitigating the range problem still exists. Therefore, YES!
