EBU land does have it problems. Tom Townsend reported this hand which was opened 2C announced as "strong" from the 2019 Middlesex Swiss Teams: void AKQT8643 void KQT54 Partner had both minor aces and 7H was bid and made. Afterwards the 2C bid was ruled illegal (strong=16+ or 12 ...
Control-Showing Responses to Strong 2!c Openings: General Thoughts?
I like 2D=an A or K. 2H=no A or K 2S+ as you like Mostly responder will bid 2D but when she bids 2H. Asking by opener if still slam interested after 2H. Begins with Qs,, eg Roman Blackwood for Q.
Keith George's lead problem: AQ98 A95 AJ82 J8
At the time as South having shown some interest in hearts with my 2C bid i thought I would get a heart lead. Partner took the majority view and lead CJ. Sadly dummy had CQT9Xx I had Kx and declarer Axxx. So they made 2Cx - we won 3spades and partners ...

O/D Parity and Total Tricks
Where did you get your stats from Nigel? Sounds like they would be worth publishing. However it seems clear that LoTT is at best a Rule of Thumb(RoT). It could never really be close to 100% right and probably nothing else can either. The question is, is it close ...
Keith George's bidding problem: QT93 Q5 Q82 KQ63
The hand was played 9 times and opened 3 times. Points are 20-20 and South was 3442 shape, but NS can make 1NT or 2S and EW can make nothing. -1.5 imps to me.
Slam frequency
Call the 26 cards in the partnership the TH, with suit lengths abcd a spades b hearts etc. The the conditions Philip specified in the first place imply a and b are at most 7, and c and d are at most 8 and if c or d is 8 ...
Another Question for Mathematicians--well...Statisticians
I assume that Pavlicek did a full calculation - the page that Greg Lawler mentioned gave the sample size (6.35E+11) as the full set of all possible (13 card) hands. In fact with a bit of effort you can do this in a spreadsheet and that gives 4.13 ...
MOSSO--anyone have any insight as to whether this is Open-chart legal?
Maybe Richard will put a summary of Mosso on Bridgewinners, but the 1C opening bid is (Forcing for one round) and either a)13+ unbalanced with 4+ clubs or b)17+ with 5+ spades or c) balanced with 12-14,18-20 or 23+ points. A balanced 12-14 hand might have 5 ...
MOSSO--anyone have any insight as to whether this is Open-chart legal?
Mosso is a development on Swift which Richard Granville described in detail here in Bridgewinners (look it up). I'm UK based so don't know the ACBL restrictions but Swift seemed OK. I'm sure Richard will comment. In my view Mosso is a big step forward for Fantunes ...
