I meant 14 per player. About 4 in the bidding and 10 in the play.
Comparing clocks for chess to bridge: Each hand, on average will have about 14 hits on the clock. 26 board session, that is 364 hits. A chess clock gets 40 hits in 2 hours. You are also holding cards in your hand while you hit. Nothing comparable in chess. How ...
YBTJ--Who is more to blame for this disaster?
JTxx of is a response?

@Steve. When we are allowed to play Multi, this is a perfect 2 opening showing about 9-12 and a GOOD suit. We would then have your suggested auction to 3NT.
YBTJ--Who is more to blame for this disaster?
98% South. What was the point of 6? Surely partner's side length is in diamonds, but our 1-1 in the pointed suits won't help much. If South had AKQJxxxx none AKJx A He might expect North to produce either the Q or ...
Responding 2!c with exactly 4!s +4!c GF?
1 followed by 3NT is fine if you can be sure that is the best spot. But: 1. We might have just a single (or no) stopper in one of the black suits. 2. Partner might have a decent 5-5, where we can make slam in Diamonds. 3. Partner ...
Responding 2!c with exactly 4!s +4!c GF?
Where is the dreaded 1-1;2-? auction?
Responding 2!c with exactly 4!s +4!c GF?
The problem with 1 first on GF hands is the dreaded 2 bid. Now you need to bid 3 as 4SF, and opener's 3d call loses clarity (picture a 2542 hand with modest extras and you will see the problem).
Responding 2!c with exactly 4!s +4!c GF?
Playing 1 as unbalanced, it seems more clear to bid 1, since you gain all of the extra space from the 'idle' 1NT, and whatever extra hands you get to show.
Missed Game
I would open 1, and wonder why we got to a poor game.
