Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What does this 4NT bid mean?
A good 5 - partner may raise to slam with something appropriate for this.
Jacob Duschek's got it. From 4, say KJ83 the 8 can come into play. From Q83 the 8 is rarely important and sometimes you technically need to unblock the middle card to run the suit.
Where it all started for ZB Maybe it started in 1991, then one could say it ended with this video.
Barometer Scoring For Pair Events

F&S: Hearing delayed again
Do anyone know what the status is in the other cheating cases. What is the next action, and when does this happen (approx?)
Where Do We Go From Here?
Right Boye, if you are facing the "death penalty" no matter what, you might as well deny, even when the proofs are clearcut.
Another "What is Standard?" bidding poll
By far, most experts in my country - Denmark - plays 2nt as 4-card spade support and 10+HCP, so here 3 would be weakest possible, anything else a trial bid, spades agreed. I would be very surprised if an expert partner would think 2nt was invitational with misfit to both ...
