Someone has blundered
Some people would prefer we didn't have people.
Someone has blundered
Archie Bunker would not object.
Common Game #12 7-15-19
Not bad, really. In general we don't like opening 2nt with 5M/4m, but this array would be an exception. Then xfer to Spades followed by 4 is slammish but not slam committal because Responder did not simply Texas the hand. Opener accepts slam with all her primes ...
What is redouble?
Even if they are palookas, we have decided not to treat them as such. We redouble to show a really good playing hand with 6-4 in the reds -- 2nt instead with 6-4 in hearts and clubs...something partner might be able to use. 'Delay unusual', if you want to name ...
Responding to takeout double with 4-4 majors

I don't know specifically about what Walsh said about 3, but I do know that 3 was forcing and most likely the start of a slam probe to every one of the gurus I read or listened to way back then -- even if they didn't employ ...
Carding Dilemma
Side point, if you play upside down carding signals: More and more players are realizing that Trick one signals should not be upside down. Someone else would certainly be better skilled than I to explain all the reasons why.
Hesitation Blackwood
The few times it has come up for you doesn't change what I said. And still, there shouldn't be any gain possible for being able to bid 5 of the agreed major unless it is hearts, the answer to KC was Diamonds, and you didn't choose to ...
