i think i bounce to 4S very quickly with what ever my methods are there is a big danger the oppo have a big club fit and find a profitable sacrifice if i go slow

the trouble with the K spades it could potentially say you have the Ace and partner may not ruff it if void - the QJ or 9 are much better and were big winners as partner ruffs and the cross ruff ensued

the match is close you were up by 12 at half time but think those have already gone and the match is probably level, you may be a few down, at this point.

this is the last board

OP and I were on opposing teams i opened 4H

i hate Jxxx leads but this is one hand i think it is the lesser of a lot of evils, i don't lead a diamond as partner with Qxx may have stopped off to bid 2D

as you can imagine this was a director ruling problem the hand opposite asked questions after the 3 diamond bit to ascertain whether the oppo were playing full suit transfers (obviously not) and then passed.

If you play a weak no trump and announce same to opposition at start of play, bridge logic says that 1NT is strong. Do you announce NT opener in ACBL world?

we announce NT openers in EBU land so the rebid should be obvious to the opposition within that context (assuming it is natural)

we specifically play A = reverse attitude and K = normal count, Against No trumps we also play K for Count/unblock and Q/J for attitude so we can lead from Q from KQ should be felt necessary
