3-level responses to 1NT
What are the continuations after the singleton-showing 3H and 3S? And is 45 in the minors acceptable for these calls or must it be 56?
Alertable?
Other because it depends on the alerting rules where you're playing. Also Other because even if the alert isn't required, there's no reason not to issue it if playing online and self-alerting both opponents but not partner. And voted for "just bridge" as well.
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

I suppose that I should also ask that if you disagree with double or with 3C you say what you would do instead....
Insufficient Qbid: Is a Sufficient Qbid Comparable?
3S is not a subset of 2S if there exists a hand that would bid 3S over 2S but would also bid 3S (splinter?) when 2S would have been sufficient. But although I may be on solid ground in terms of set theory here, practically speaking I think that the ...
What is 4!S?
The FH example hand may be enough of an outlier that it justifies seizing the captaincy over a 4S that was intended to end the auction. But it's an outlier, doesn't change the basic logic of the auction as Woolsey describes it.
Eric Hamilton's bidding problem: A86 AKQT9 93 KQJ
For 4H to be right, not only does it have to make but also partner must hold a hand that might not raise your 3H to 4H. That's a very small target: the weakest hands that make 4H are a doubleton king of spades and four hearts, a perfecto ...
