The weakness of lower strats
I was at a game a few months ago where the director was having the usual ns-ew difficulties. He finally announced that if he didn’t get a ns to volunteer to switch, we would play the game with two sitouts. Surprise! A pair volunteered. Brilliant!
You be the director
As reference, partner is a notorious weak weak-2er, frequently with 5. We use mod-Ogust to compensate. I probably was too conservative here, but it was a conditioned reflex...lol

Missing the point I think

I’m with Peg...makes my head explode. This is supposed to be a competitive game. Why reward the worst pair in a field. Are we doing participation awards like T-ball? Goes against my grain is all.

My mistake...it was 26.85% http://www.bridgewebs.com/cgi-bin/bwom/bw.cgi?pid=display_rank&sessid=473246215633063&event=20190703_1&club=tampabaybridge

We had a NAP qualifier this week where a 27% got a Q! Wonders never cease...

David Coles's bidding problem: 62 AQT64 AQT5 KQ
Partner actually had a hand he could have bid 2 with: Qx, x, Kxxxx, AJxxx. He did a little downgrade on the Qx and stiff in my first suit. If he bids 2, I bid 3 and we make our way to 5 instead of 3NT ...

Sounds like a reasonable understanding to have. Thus 3NT would deny a spade stopper I guess. But club situation would be ambiguous?

What meaning would you give to 3? Worried about spades? Worried about clubs? Other?
