-590: assign the blame
Cui culpa? After the board was over and E/W had conceded 590 East assailed West for doubling 4 with a singleton. The full hand was x Qxxxxx Kx Axxx Auction 1♦-x-1S-4♥ 4♠-P-P-x- AP Should East have done more or done different with Axx KJx xx KQxxx ...
Is it a demand or a suggestion?
Curiously after 1-(1)-2-(2)-3-4-5 you would probably have bid slam. There must be a moral there...
Is it a demand or a suggestion?
Strongly agree this is about spades and the clear (and to me unambiguous) way to do this.
-590: assign the blame
My entry for cui culpa. Who was to blame for going for 500 here? x Qxxxxx Kx Axxx Auction 1-x-1S-4 4-P-P-5 P-P-x-AP West bought a bad dummy for his actions -- surprisingly it was KQJ KJxx Qx J9xx The defenders had four top tricks against 4 ...
Are Reverses “Off” in a 2/1 auction?
The issue of whether 1-2-2M shows or denies five diamonds let alone extras is one that has no firm agreement at any level of the game. I know my position isn't standard but I like it to show reversing shape and a non-minimum. So since 2NT shows ...

It feels like this is a good moment to set up a diamond trick before it goes on the spades. I assume the club six is either fourth or 3rd/lowest. Worth noting which.
Missed Game; Missed Slam
As to when 4m is game, 3 'clearly' should not set up GF. Responder's 4 is passable. But 3 ought to my mind set up a GF sequence. Now 4 over 3 is forcing with no heart stopper and as these things go East ...
1N - 3m
Nonetheless David (since building a better mousetrap or passing shade over our friend's methods is what we love to do) why not mention what your 3M calls mean -- in case can shuffle sequences more effectively. It couldn't hurt...anything except an ego or two, :)
Ok. A stupid question on a Wednesday evening.
I've been the victim of two two-card endings. One where declarer led the 6 from hand towards the 7 in dummy and my client couldn't work out which hand she was going to win that in. In the other my (national tournament winning) partner had K10 behind dummy ...
SF BOD Motion
I assume opportutunity is a chance to dance. Oh that this tutu solid flesh would melt... It is nice to see that there are occasionally people almost as careless as me when it comes to typing and spellcheck.
