Common Game #12 7-15-19
3N looks bad to me. Why not 3? Then 3 ...
Zero-max imps (new scoring method)
"Why should you gain from overbidding and then getting a lucky lead?" Because bidding is a matter of probabilities, and the probability that the opponents will not find the best lead has to be a part of the calculation. How often have you seen a comment on a bidding problem ...
Jason Leith's bidding problem: QJ985 A6 JT Q543
3. Give partner a reasonable minimum - AKxxx xxx Axx xx and 3 is the limit of the hand. I am pretty aggressive about bidding game after a limit raise, so I think 3 is enough here.

Do you want to be relegated from Bracket A to Bracket B?
I would be unwilling to do so.
Sorry. Another question about a bad claim.
Some confusion here about who is "making" tricks. I think the defense gets two more tricks, which makes four total for the defense, so declarer makes three.
Responding to takeout double with 4-4 majors
The problem I see with the fourth option is that sometimes you are forced and then the auction gets awkward if you started with 1. Of course you can still bid spades, but there will ambiguity as to length, you don't usually want to hear a preference to ...
