Florian Alter's bidding problem: J87 8 KQ53 AKQT8
For simplicity reasons we play 5NT as pick a slam in any situation. I feel like GSF is such a low gain convention that it's not really worthwhile playing it. Surely partner could have found another bid than 5NT, but there is nothing you can do about it at ...
Florian Alter's bidding problem: AQ4 AK97 AT4 AKT
We play 1H/S as 4+ forcing. We never felt in need to have such a kind of relay.
Florian Alter's bidding problem: 98 AKQJT765 T 86
Thanks for the votes and comments! In the actual hand partner held x x A98xxx AK109x, and with hearts 2-2, clubs 3-3 and diamonds 4-2 one would have collected +1100.

Partner won't rush to slam just based on HCP. He should be aware that you can have a hand like this. If you bid 3 you will have to guess blindly later in the bidding.
Florian Alter's bidding problem: 98 AKQJT765 T 86
If the opponents have 10 trumps, they may have 10 tricks if there is a lot of distribution even though you have all side suits under control. On the other hand, the both opponents may have flat hands (6133 for instance can be considered a flat hand if partner holds ...
Dangerous spot
Since it is partner's first turn, double on 3 would have been takeout according to our agreements.
Name This Squeeze (Again!)
Yeah, you're right. I got something wrong in my mind.
Name This Squeeze (Again!)
Wow, that must be a very rare end position. I think this a delayed duck squeeze, a special kind of a strip-squeeze. The unusal thing is that no extra winner is squeezed out (so that you can duck a trick to establish a trick while the opponent can't cash ...
Scary Dummy
1) Partner bid 2 over 1NT. With a minimum hand and no interesting shape he could have passed. 2) Strong hands in general are rare, yes. But here partner opened 1 and bid 2 opposite our 0-4, so it isn't unlikely anymore that partner has enough ...
Discarding Problem
Partner can't play the 9 on the second round, since you could have KQ doubleton. Apart from that, I think this approach is too restrictive. Sometimes you are forced to signal for something where you don't want to signal at all. Other times you wish to give a ...
