When they double 3NT
Agree with XX showing doubt. But once I was too weak to XX. So I had to run in front of partner. Right again,
Best line in 6!H
Draw trumps and duck a Spade.
A Beautiful Hand
I miss Al Roth. Instead of “What’s the problem”. I hear him saying “WTF”? To consider doubling 3N with AKQJx is ridiculous. To pass 3N X with 10xxx is surreal. The buy in at WSOP is 10k.
Defending the 2!c overcall in Multi-Landy / Woolsey
X = interest in defending with at least INV values 2D = natural and non-forcing 2H = a weakish/competitive negative X 2S = both minors and stronger than 2H 2N and higher - whatever you like
What's your poison?
David: Thanks for the memory of “nignog”. A great expression used by my friend Jolly ( Bill Tucker).
Percentage Shift
Doesn’t opening 1D playing a strong club system expose you to the same wrath as fellow American experts who caught flack in a recent WC? As I recall it was stated that they never pass in 3rd seat when non-vulnerable, and I think ruled illegal.
Ruling question regarding an unalerted jump cuebid
I will not make a comment on what to bid or not bid but rather prefer to comment on procedures behind screens. The correct procedure as I understand it is to alert your screen mate and then write down the explanation, whether requested or not. No sign language, no tapping ...
Freak Deal appeal
Complete BS that dummy did anything. Defensive tempo is always relevant but dummy gets to keep quiet.

A great player. A greater personality. A Canadian bridge hero
Bridge post-mortems at the table
Retort to Khokan’s comment. You try making it the way I played it.
