Bidding recommendations please
An immediate 2C bid by North is inviting disaster. Why wouldn't South immediately raise 1 Spade to 2 Spades? Spiral or no Spiral, it's the right bid.
Mentality of Cheating
I'm as cynical as anyone I know. But "we all cheat each day" is a bit too broad-brush for me. I'm definitely not a saint, but I strive to avoid cheating in every arena of life. I suspect there are lots like me. I have no sympathy for ...
Mentality of Cheating

Plan the Play in 3NT at Matchpoints
When will we be told what the opening lead was?
