Auction Whacking
I remember defending 5NTxx in the pairs event at the old Eastbourne congress in the 1980's, playing with my brother. It eventually went one down. Can't remember the full hand.
Mike Graham's lead problem: 642 83 Q97653 84
At the table a heart was led, for 13 tricks. Philip had it right - partner had the A and was attempting to deflect a heart lead. One of those cases where both partners thought they were doing the right thing.

Hard to Believe
On holiday this year we sat down in the bar and dealt a hand - after RHO passed I was looking at: AK 7 AKJ987652 A 4NT-5-7NT. Pard had 103. These hands are quite rare......
What Is Partner Saying to You?
It doesn't have to be lead-directing. You can play it as a take-out double of the shown suit.
For those of a certain age
Back in the 1980's in the Spring Foursomes my RHO dealt and opened 1S. I had a 20-count with AQJ983 of spades. I passed, 2S on my left, and partner (Barry Rigal) doubled. All pass. I led the A, dropping partner's king, and we rattled off all thirteen ...
