Ron Smith's bidding problem: QJT8764 QJ985 6 ---
Partner holds a fistful of clubs, so will pass 2. But partner would prefer that we pass 2.
Yordan Boychev's bidding problem: AJ4 5 A954 T8432
Passing looks timid - particularly at IMPs. I expect partner to have 16+ HCPs or 15 and a good lead. Opps probably have a nine-card heart fit (no penalty pass), so we seem to have a fit in one of the other suits. Even 4 on a Moysian might be ...
A simple proposal to improve the game while earning clubs/directors extra income
Why not reduce the up-front investment in a copier and simply buy a stock of blank convention cards and two pens. I'll leave you to calculate how much you want to charge for buying the blank card and for pen rental.
Futile Willie?

Sergiu Covaliu's bidding problem: KT KQ52 942 AQ95

So before we pick Stayman & Transfers (yes - they are ...
1NT announcement when you upgrade for length?
Michael Angelo Ravera: I can't comment on the EBU's Orange Book, since it is many years since that document was superseded. The Blue book - 4 B 1 (b) has "...a pass or bid must be alerted if it is natural but has a potentially unexpected meaning." In my ...
1NT announcement when you upgrade for length?
I open 12-14 throughout. I guess that under Christopher's scheme I would announce as weak in first or second chair but strong in third! :)
Gerry Gassman's bidding problem: A76 AKJ943 75 K4
Transfers are off if there is further competition.
Were EW damaged?
You can make the case that NS did not agree that 3 on this auction is a splinter. But the convention card implies that they have agreed splinters and does not mention that splinters do not apply in this auction so it seems more plausible that they did indeed ...
