Chris Derrick's bidding problem: A2 Q8 A865 KQ765
I really dislike 2 with a flat hand and a 5 card suit with no fillers. 1N obviously has dangers but I like that I have a 5 card suit to escape to.
Stephen Merriman's bidding problem: 52 AK AKQ9 KT432

What is the name of this squeeze ?
Michael, I think I must not have been clear. Of course I agree that if East did not have the 10 then the squeeze wouldn't operate. My point is that if we add a Heart card to the 3 card ending so that it is as follows: N: Immaterial ...
I agree with Andy (a typically well-written answer from him) and Gonzalo. I can't see that West has any UI since he remembered that 2 was Majors before the alert.
