This seems akin to saying best way to win is to poison the competition

I think I want to be in hearts to ruff at least one and possibly more clubs

Congrats! I have enjoyed how nice and friendly you are when I've gotten to play against you.

I would also think P is forcing and want to double to discourage pard from bidding.

It must depend on the tournament but at some you can get in trouble if you get the masterpoint total for your team substantially wrong.

I'd X just because I don't think defending 3S undoubled is our best spot at mps. Hope pard guesses right what to do over it lol…

8 seems like you are supposed to open 3N every time as dealer to force them to make the 4 level bid and then collect

I like 1NT because 1NT auctions are easy

That's a great idea for future improvement. Thanks! I think currently the easiest way is to just take a screenshot which I'd agree is suboptimal.

I'm definitely happy to hear suggestions for future improvements. There's a few things I've thought of improving with it down the road and love to hear other people's ideas of what they'd find useful.

Craig, can you elaborate what you mean by “results summary”? Do you mean like column of totals and averages and such at the end or something else?

Matthew, great idea! Will put it on my todo list of future enhancements. Thanks!

You may be right I'm not sure technically what counts it. This would also be a guard squeeze ending where W doesn't really have any option but to pitch his guard:

N: K K Kx void
E: void x Qxx void
S: void void AJx A
W: A A Jx void.

S lead the CA and if W pitches anything but a diamond he's giving away all the tricks immediately. No real option for him to keep his guard that doesn't involve declarer tabling his hand immediately. On the deal I posted W does have an option of pitching the club and declarer won't immediately have the rest. It definitely still may be a standard guard squeeze but that difference I thought was worth bringing out. Plus I'm still haven't noticed being dealt a guard squeeze before so either way I'm excited about the ending :)

Anything is possible but to overcall such a ratty heart suit I'd want to be 55.

I think not quite because W can pitch a club and E still guards the club suit (and then E will get squeezed on the HA). Perhaps this still counts as guard squeeze but I thought the double squeeze element made it more interesting than “a standard guard squeeze.”

What was the parliamentary maneuver?

Without the J would you still bid 4?

If you decide to vary your range I'd recommend just doing it 12NV. Not 3 NV because you are really asking for it after pard has failed to open a mini NT. Took me a while to make the change but have been very happy to have a strong NT 3rd NV while enjoying benefits of mini NT in 12NV

Had there been no double I'd bid game with a 5 loser hand. With the double depending on what 2 shows surely I would at least muster up a 3 bid.
