TY, Don - Most appreciated. C U in Philly.
Range for Responder’s Splinter
Len: As you would expect, with a 9+ card fit, I fall back on LTC. By an UPH, Dennis and I play that over a spade, both 3h and 4h are splinters --the 4h splinter is limited to a hand that would normally want to play no more than game ...
I have to agree with Ricard. Hand is triple flawed--(a) too few pts to force partner to the 3-level without a fit; (2) insufficient hand for partner to sit for the double; and (3) only one card higher than a Q. I would bid 2s (JT right is decent ...
Bridge vanity license plates

Greg Humphreys's bidding problem: AQT Qxx AQTx Kxx
Greg: I could not respond to your poll without knowing how high you play responsive doubles.
Dennis Dewit's bidding problem: 3 AQ7542 KJT98 6
I abstained in your poll. I think the system you are using vs. Multi (i.e., giving up the x to show a penalty double of h's) is seriously flawed. You could very well miss your heart slam, since partner has a good hand. (If partner has as little ...
Ruling on Misinformation
Kieran: not according to Craig. The double was 4th chair.
