No system bid? Times have changed?
How do you play 1D - 2NT? Is it forcing? My memory of SA is fuzzy but I believe it typically shows either of 12-14 or 18-19. So a reasonable auction: 1D - 2NT (forcing) 3NT - 4NT (quantitative) 6NT My concern about bidding 2C and then 2H is that partner is going ...
Do defensive beers count if diamonds are trumps?
Yes, as long as the contract is defeated.
How to find the queen?
60% of the time, it works every time.

Sorry: Qx KQT. Axxx xxxx
David Genne's bidding problem: KJ 752 JT8 AKJT9
I bid 3C at the table. Partner held Qx KQT Axx xxxx and had to act over (2S) - 3C - (4S) He tried 5C, which was doubled for -500. At the other table, first seat did not pre-empt with Txxxxx of spades. 3NT was bid and made without a spade lead ...

Questions about 1NT overcalls
I've never played Meckwell, and I have switched all my partners to Woolsey/Robinson, but many of the principles are the same. 1.) Do you ever allow a single-suit to be a strong 5 card suit? Does it have to be 6+ cards? I do not. 5-3-3-2 is no ...
Questions about 1NT overcalls
Using 2 for both majors is a lot better than 2 for majors. You'll use this bid frequently with 5-4, and what is partner supposed to do with 2-2 or 3-3? Over 2, make a wild guess. Over 2, bid 2 asking partner to ...
Katherine Todd's bidding problem: A9542 T3 --- AJT872
There are two reasonable schools of thought on dealing with 5M-6m. A lot of people in this thread are strongly in favor of opening the minor... If you agree to always open your 5-card major, it may hurt you some on the 5-6 hands. But I've seen a lot ...

And the opponents might have tried to balance 2H, which would have been an even better dream.
