1NT announcement when you upgrade for length?
For Mr. Burn: "He's got ten to a dozen, except when he doesn't."
Mathematically, when should you make a game try (and which one)?
Just when you thought David Burn couldn't get any cooler, you find out he's a Tom Lehrer fan.
When does a "Takeout Double" of 1!C become Ineffective?
If 1 is artificial and strong (Precision etc), double should be part of your favorite defense (Mathe, Crash). Otherwise, double is takeout with emphasis on the majors. I would double a short 1 with 4=4=1=4.
What is the "statistically best way" to play the AJ9 opposite Kxx?

I don't pass to West, I pass it to whomever is last to bid on the next hand.
What are your pet peeves?
i wanna refill. I wanna eat burnt, dead brownies, beans in my teeth, I wanna refill.. Refill... REFILL!
What's the correct ruling?
Was there an "unmistakable hesitation"? Yes. Was bidding on "demonstrably suggested" by the hesitation? The only thing South could only have been thinking about was going past 6H. Yes. Is pass a "logical alternative"? If it wasn't, North would have been grand over 5NT. So, yes. This is as ...
