My wife and I played this yesterday in a Common Game session so I’ll abstain.

That eliminates the third question mark, maybe the last two.

I assume you mean “2”. I wish the same.

Is there some bidding missing? I don’t see the significance of the note on 2.

Some thoughts on David's complaint.
1. When we did qualify as Juniors, there were no such things. The category was known as “Smart Ass Kid”. Some of us were OVER qualified.
2. It would be only fair to allow us a second chance. My mental picture of myself remains about 19-21. After all, the total of weight and hair coverage remains roughly constant.
3. I am somewhat dismayed to discover that you are younger than I am.

My practice is to abstain when I was involved in the hand. If I’m posting for a friend, I express my opinion when I consider it untainted.

I am initiating a Kickstarter to fund the public flogging of RR for committing such a horrible pun.

I know Spiral and Spiral 5, but what is 6 Step Spiral?

Also what would an initial 2NT have meant?

This is an impossible situation. The only sensible reason for responding 1 was to treat this as a three card limit raise. A subsequent pass after finding a 9 card fit is just bizarre.

No matter how much one detests opening 1 on 4-5 minors, there was no reason to face this completely foreseeable no-win situation.

Partner clearly has 4+ support for all the unbid suits or he expects you to lead his solid 8 bagger.

I’m not sure if it’s still extant but some 25 years ago, I was taken by my customers to a place which specialized in fried scorpions. Unfortunately, they were out of season so I can’t make a recommendation.

I spent 40 years traveling in China with an average of about a week a year. I was first in Wuhan before there were any hotels for foreigners. My first accommodation was the #4 Guest House of Wuhan Iron & Steel. It featured hot and cold running water … down a wall. The elevator was non-functional. My room was on the 5th floor with the meetings on the 8th.

I can’t begin to figure how much time I’ve spent being driven around China. Despite the absolute truth of David B’s observations, I only saw one bad accident in all my travels. I have no explanation for why it wasn’t one per hour.
