Wish I could play more bridge.

Eric Leong's bidding problem: K7 Q942 A654 K32
Eric, what would partner's double of 2 have been in this auction? - clubs? - general values? - takeout of spades? - setting up a later penalty (some play double-then-double = pen)? I'd like to be able to bid a Woolsey-2NT (showing preference for diamonds, in a competitive-only-situation) here in case partner ...
ATB: Slam vs 3NT
@ Richard: Maybe. Response 1: I think an initial force of 2 allows opener to describe in competition (in a force through 3), certainly enough to bid if permitted by East: 3 (showing real clubs), or bid 2 (finding the spade fit). If the opponents pre-empt in ...
ATB: Slam vs 3NT
Since 3 is already a jump, and should hardly mean 'bid 3NT with a heart stop', I think 4 is more like: AKxx --- Axxx Q10xxx
ATB: Slam vs 3NT
How about 2 at North's second turn? Double (promising 4 spades) then 2 (on finding no fit) is strong and forcing. It's similar to an auction like 1 (1) Dbl (3) Pass (Pass) 3 = forcing Alternatively, I also like 2 at ...
2!S or not?
Hand 6 is almost worth a mild invite to 3: I'd do so if the club honor were in hearts. It's unclear in standard whether 1 - 1 ; 2 - 2 ought to be mildly invitational (after all opener could have up to a bad ...
what does 3 hearts mean
Or Gazzilli the first time, so that 1 - 1NT 3 = 5/5 intermediate. 1 - 1NT 2 = start of all strong 1 - 1NT 2 - 2NT 3 = must be the remaining option. Gazzilli seems to get a bad rap for being memory intensive, but I ...

I'm not sure what I'd have done over the first double ...
"Flexible signals" (part two)
Dave, good point -- someone else pointed that out to me too. I think in the case of a 3-card suit, you know you've led from a dead-end suit. Therefore you *always* want a switch (unless your hand is so bad ... in which case declarer is probably making anway). If ...
Opener's jump rebid of 3NT after a game forcing 2/1 response
Craig, not really ... I('m pretty sure I')ve never bid 1M - 2m ; 3NT, and I don't plan to. Playing a strong NT, I'd open 1NT. Playing a weak NT as I do sometimes in the UK, 1M - 2m ; 2NT has a normal 3 range-ask follow-up.
While I voted mostly West because of the horror-2, I have little sympathy for East. At these colours, sometimes it's just not our hand.
