about me

Tried to follow "Mom's First Rule of Bridge" since I started learning this game.  ("No one cares if you are good or bad, don't be slow")

What do you expect from partner?

Question for those playing CYZ
You can also decide the difference between ...2C-2D; 2/3 invites by responder. One option is 2S is either a bad 4-card or a 3-card raise. If responder is KJx / Q9xxx / Axxx / J do you really want to invite with 2H or 2NT?
Legal: AI or UI?
[B]Now the followup:[b] Same situation, but rather than making a comment, the North player now leads a card before declarer calls for one. This will become a major penalty card. Per L50E1: E. Information from a Penalty Card 1. Information derived from a penalty card and the requirements ...
What did you guys defined this double ?
Without discussion, I would assume penalty. TO is playable as well.
Another Question for Mathematicians--well...Statisticians
