To make Indi a really serious sport you would have to get rid of all the other sports and pastimes I can play instead.

If you don't bid 2S on the first hand why are you playing that defensive method to 1NT? (Multi-Landy?)

Double looks auto; luckily I'm not here as I opened 2H…

(actually no luck involved, just good system design…)

I started with a double while I caught my breath…


…that's more high cards than I get in a week usually.

Double was another ‘least worst’ option for me; pass a close second.

I don't like 4D but there seems little choice; if partner can't stand me bidding 4D they shouldn't have doubled.

We don't open 1C light so 2NT for me.

Random Free-card Blackwood:

5C: 0 or 3 key cards, but sometimes more (or less)
5D: to play
5H: “I’ve got a Queen”
5S: Splinter

Problem with bididng 3D is that partner may be strong balanced with 3 spades and won't believe that you have 5 of them.

I think you need an X here to show a big hand; its the only protection you have against kite-flying by your rho.

A complete problem would be nice too: 1NT?

If we are playing UDCA and my K asks for (upside-down)count then partner has 3 spades and declarer probably has Ax.

But we are not told what 1C was: natural? strong? short?

A much missed English Lady international used to wear latex gloves when playing towards the end of her life. Pretty much any infection is bad news for people undergoing chemotherapy.

This is ridiculous; I think F&S should sue the IBF for loss of earnings. The IBF should now reinstate F&S pending the hearing.
