Bruce Schwaidelson's bidding problem: K J83 AQT73 T872
If I understand our system correctly pard has denied a major so they have nine spades and we have at least eight clubs
Your choice for 3NT

How Unusual is this Hand
Thanks Richard. You are much a wealth of information.
Your choice for 3NT
The standard "gambling 3nt" virtually never comes up. And when it does, it doesn't work. So why I have on every CC with every partner I have had in the last thirty years? Let's play 3NT as, oh I don't know, 7 hearts and 6 clubs and ...

Mark Jones's bidding problem: J9753 AKT987 6 5
2 presumably shows a forcing diamond bid.
ACBLscore"+" - a short history
Hammond didn't reverse engineer anything. Just like me, he had the all the source code. Instead he wrote a pathetically awful attempt to read out the contents of the game files. It never worked. Whether there were bugs in the original code is an entirely separate issue.
