Tom Edwards's bidding problem: KJ62 KT765 --- AKQT
Opening 1NT=14-16
UDCA and Smith
David, you may well be describing the way Smith was originally suggested by I.G. Smith. I don't know. It seems to me to have some of the elements of what I know of as Modified Smith. In his 1995 book, “Defensive Signals,” Marshall Miles suggested an improvement to ...
UDCA and Smith

Is this forcing?
There is a strange bidding agreement that is played by many of the good players in my area. After an opening bid in a minor. a major suit response, and a rebid of 2 of the minor, the only forcing bid is a bid in the other minor. That is ...
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: A6 AKT6 AKT4 974
Is it fair to double and announce "Penalty" even if you think it should be otherwise? :)
Timuçin (Timo) Erkoç's bidding problem: 865432 4 J KQ864
Yes, 4 could work well, and at another vulnerability I'd bid that. At this vulnerability, it's a virtual certainty that the opponents will bid again.
