Frank Lin's bidding problem: 973 Q7 A865 KJ52
I think X here should be responsive, since 3 is a 3 raise showing hearts along the way. If X were for penalty, South would almost certainly be short in hearts and just go back to the 9-card spade fit.

We Hope You Stay Home
From my old psychology courses, it was stated that people in general are most motivated by moderately difficult things. Assuming this is broadly true, it seems to make sense that bridge players would be more interested in playing in events in which they have a chance in "doing well." "Doing ...
