Leading low from a doubleton in trumps
I once led the 4 of trumps from the 42 doubleton. Late in the hand declarer ruffed in front of me with the 3 and I couldn't overruff. So now I always lead low from a doubleton
Is this a way to run an organization?
Any team can volunteer to play in the top bracket. This did not happen and what they wanted to do was not play in the knockouts again
VOTE on How to Break Ties in Knockout Stage Matches
Two possible suggestions (1) Give the team that's won more quarters an 1/2 imp going into the last quarter. (2) Give the team that's ahead at the last score comparison an 1/2 imp. Then you know what you need to win and there won't be ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Obviously if you gave this hand as an opening lead problem a good majority would lead a diamond. They would say to themselves, if this is a problem there must be a catch since usually you make a safe lead against 7NT undoubled. There is lots of logic which says ...

Therefore if you have an opening bid ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
The main point here is that if the opponents are in 7NT and you have an ace and partner is on lead, you MUST double and hope that partner finds your ace. If you don't double partner could easily try to find a safe lead.
Refresher help in fundamental principles
Al Roth used to do it all the time so how bad can it be. It allows responder to respond 1diamond. However, most players bypass diamonds. I always open 1diamond so I can rebid clubs if necessary
0/3 Ambiguity
Why can't opener have Axxxx/x/AKQJ/Qxx and you're off the AK of clubs. This is why you need to bid 3spades in order to get a club cuebid
