Board 8 from the 08/30/2019 Common Game
At our table, N bid 2D over 1NT, E doubled and led a trump. It was pretty bloody.

Thank you for a wonderful tribute to a terrific person
In the middle of a tournament, a player collapses. Do you know what to do?
David I'm in the same jurisdiction as you and I've taken First Aid and CPR courses every three years for the past two and a half decades. I've never been told there was a legal obligation to seek assistance.

Bruce, 3 is game forcing in Kaplan-Sheinwold which was the first thing that crossed my mind.

That unfortunately fouls up the rest of our response system so it's not an option.

I'm not a fan of 2nd negatives over 2's either but sometimes one has to compromise.

Martin I agree but that assumes partner should've responded to 1. In fact they shouldn't have, but they did.

If you open 2, you'll probably get the following auction, with 3 a second negative. P P 2 P 2 X 3 P 3 P ?

At my table the auction was similar until W, liking the vulnerability, decided to bid 5D over 4H, doubled by N.
Board 2 from the 11/23/2018 Common Game
Isn't N likely to double a club q-bid?
