What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
Cannot 'like' your post...but man, rest assured that I empathise.
Another reason for why Bridge is viewed as an old people's game
Horse...feathers. (I wouldn't want to burn any unsuspecting Juniors' ears.) Other sports are actually adding mixed events. Mixed doubles curling recently debuted at the Olympics. Mixed Medley Relay swimming debuts at Tokyo 2020. I'm told that korfball, a mixed sport, is on the rise. There are too ...
Flawed Multi
I think N is bidding because the X of 2 can show either the 13-15 or some big hand. If S is 17-ish, N/S clearly need to be in a vulnerable game somewhere. As to what X is, I am also somewhat confused. But I don't see ...
12 IMPs penalty against the opps - what would you do ?

Michael Hopkins's bidding problem: J43 AK A872 Q842
Just in my own partnership, this one could be grounds for divorce. I'm bidding 3, and raising with two-card support will not please partner. But in our partnership, her bid is hopefully 2N for clubs and hearts and cramping opposition, and the club fit's on.
How to bid a strong hand?
First thing's first: I need to make sure I get a second call. Whether that's 1 or 2 that's job #1.
Would you double?
If I feel the need to lie to partner with Hand #1, I'll lie with 2NT as unusual for minors. If I bid anything other than 2 with the second hand, I'm walking home.
