Takeout or penalty
You should be able to tell by looking at your spades. If you have zero or one spade its penalty. If you have 3 or 4 its takeout.
District 7 Columbia/Atlanta Regionals are A GO!
I hope they put out an email to their members asking how many players would attend.
Direct Cue Over Weak 2S (Poll)
The problem with leaping Michaels is that you can't play in 3NT. Partner has AJ10x/xx/xx/AJ10xx where you're forced to play in 4hearts when partner has the red suits. Therefore 2spades - 3spades is Michaels but a 5-5 hand willing to play 3NT. Leaping Michaels is more ...
(1m) - X - (1M) - X
This what Peter and I play and I think we got this from Meckwell After (1club) double (1spade) double = penalties, 2clubs = standard cue bid 2spades - shows hearts what most players would jump to 3HTs with 3hearts = five hearts and 5-8 points (mixed raise) After (1club) double (1heart) double = penalties 2clubs ...

Lynn Deas R.I.P.
I'm amazed that Lynn did as well as she did because of her handicap. She played all over the world where the playing areas, hotels and airports weren't up to American standards for handicapped individuals. I can't fathom the extra effort she had to put in to ...
Is it possible to turn off automatic explanation of robot bids?
Don't use robots. If you're at a teaching table sit in all four seats. That way you can bid all four hands the way you want to. You can actually put in a dumb bid and when you get complaints you can undo it.
Impolite to compliment partner?
If I think partner played a hand or defended a hand well, I will tell him away from the table and tell him. Otherwise, I think it's rude to compliment partner in front of the opponents. If an opponent asks me if he could have done better, I usually ...
Does a 2!c response to 1!d opening deny a 4+ card major?
I've never heard of responding 2clubs with four if you have a four-card-major even if your major is xxxx and your clubs are AKQJ
