Joshua Donn's bidding problem: x AQT AJx 8xxxxx
Pass looks very attractive. Problem is, it's a violation of partnership trust. So I double.
Is there a trick to lose
But David, you are but one point on the spectrum. It will take me longer to decide how much information my opponent requires than to just play it out. You state that I don't have to name every card... but how do I know until you tell me that ...
Forcing or not
I play it one of two ways depending on agreements 1) Invitational with 4 spades (when 2 does not promise major) 2) Invitational with 5 spades (when 2 does promise major)

Vu-Bridge Bacon Day Hand
Yes. But Frances seemed to indicate doing very well if the heart Ace onside. A low heart off dummy makes the location of the Ace irrelevant (except perhaps Ax.) A club at trick 3 and I contend we are not well placed due to entry issues. So the duck of ...
Take It Slow
I would have bid as recommended by Kit. South is not worth a jump to 2. I would be very happy to double 1N and let partner bid hearts with a fit and defend without. This is not even a maximum 1 call. In hearts, that diamond Queen ...
