Eric's generic 2/1 card
Copy to my cards View/Print
Morton's Fork
The ace lead asks for an attitude signal, but after dummy comes down with the QJxx east cannot have an encouraging holding. In situations like this, where the attitude is now known, does it not make sense to assign some other meaning to east's card?
Greg Lawler's bidding problem: Q AJ86543 KJ2 K9
Was the void (hypothetically) signaled before or after I bid 3H?
John Torrey's bidding problem: --- KQ982 AQJ975 Q3
In a club duplicate.... If partner is expecting me to play to win this match, pass is the odds-on call. That didn't stop me from bidding 6N.
A simple proposal to improve the game while earning clubs/directors extra income

Alertable?
I remember playing on OKbridge many many years back.... 100+ kibitzers (and no, they weren't there to watch me) when I held a 19-count in this situation.... jump-shifted into 3C on exactly this club holding.... messaged kibitzers "Gotta love that SAYC - no forcing minor raise"...
Ruling please
> I admit I'm not sure what "qualitative" means here, but I defintely see a quantitative difference. The number of players who know to lead the Q from Qxx is far greater than the number who know to lead the 9 from J9xx. An additional consideration is that the players ...
Bridge logic - what does this auction suggest?
Without the interference, over 2S: 3H other major would have have agreed spades and forced to game, stronger than a direct 4S; 4C over 2S would have been RKCB for spades; 4D undiscussed
Bridge logic - what does this auction suggest?
2S showed 4 (or 5) spades, same as if west had passed. Double by north would have been penalty.
