Style Poll
On auction 2 the HCP range depends on the spade length and the location of my honors. I think overall hand evaluation - spade length and strength (especially with four) distribution, location of honors end up being really important. I will (rarely) jump with 8 HCP and four spades if these ...
Rate North's bidding
I think 1N is an underbid, especially since double is a reasonable alternative.
Can you help "junior" PART TWO (Read part one first)
This is why I'm confused. If he can't have KJ10xxx and the A, then he can't be 4-2-6-1, and the inference is fine.
Can you help "junior" PART TWO (Read part one first)
"any inference you draw by concluding he can't be 4-2-6-1 is lacking a valid foundation. " I don't understand this.

Orlando Hotel Price
Thanks, Sabine and Alvin. I just spoke to the hotel and they told me that even though the extra $25 shows up on the confirmation it will be waived. I guess I believe them.
Your call after 2!c opener’s penalty double
Pass. It's even possible spades is partner's suit. There is no reason to expect that we have a fit. Would you be astonished to find a diamond singleton opposite?
Declare 6NT
Patrick, I agree that a lead from J fourth against 6N is unattractive. Maybe West holds Qxxx J98x 10x Jxx. Not a lot of appealing choices, and at least 's is the unbid suit. Regardless of what you and I think, 3rd and low vs. 6N seems to be ...
