Away from Tannery Row
Of course if your partner followed the mandated ACBL rule of a ten second wait before making a call over the 2 jump bid, you would have had plenty of time to consider your options for an in-tempo response.
Away from Tannery Row
A strong club mitigates all decisions involving reverses. A 2 response would be made in tempo. So, as an opponent, do you now have to consider the system being employed by the tempo-challenged pair? Perhaps other auctions wil cause problems of tempo, of which you are unaware. This is ...
Mini NT in a non-strong club context; A suggested approach for higher intermediates
One problem we have found with Puppet combined with Garbage is on a hand where opener has 42 in the majors and responder has 34. Unless you demand that responder have 44 (then why ask for a 5 card major?), we miss the 43 heart fit. We have found that ...
Interesting double dummy problem to work through
With something other than a heart lead (which leads to 10 tricks with perfect play against perfect defense), 9 tricks are always available with perfect declarer play.

How to play 3NT
Strip East of club exit, then run HJ to East. If covered, win and return in clubs to finesse H9.
Ron Lel's bidding problem: Jxx x AKJ8xxxx x
Wow David. Thanks for the contribution.
Ron Lel's bidding problem: Jxx x AKJ8xxxx x
Richard - while you have described your position, on this specific hand ANY delay in impeding the opponents is dangerous when BOTH sides ALREADY have trump suits established. Yes - on the rare occasion that your partner can throw in a 3 bid (this would only happen if South passed or ...
