Given that partner had the opportunity to double 4, I don't think that what you envisage is particularly likely.

Jim, the comment was attributed to Johnny Crawford: he finished by saying that he wouldn't play at a table containing three other Johnny Crawfords since the game would be too tough.

Any potential purchaser of the Bridge Magazine set might wish to know that the magazine was not published between October 1939 and December 1948 inclusive.

I may be wrong but I think that the majority are undervaluing this hand.

Fair point, Dale, but not conclusive. Fritzi Gordon was arguably one of the greatest women players of all time winning numerous EBL and WBF titles; Nona Renshaw played in one European Championship and won it.

That is precisely why it came as such a surprise to me that they might be related.

Sidney Lee was a GP in Stratford, London E15, in the days when it was far from being a fashionable area. During the war, his surgery suffered air raid damage and he saw patients in the street.

If our agreement is that pass is no preference, it is a misdescription. If our agreement is that pass suggests defending, I have insufficient defence (though partner should be able to infer this from my pass over 1).

More likely three tricks in the minors.

Tom and J.R., it is not in dispute that Tara is the granddaughter of Fritzi. There is no reason why Nona Renshaw should not be the same person as Nona Summers. My source said:

“Nona is still around, I believe, and Nona Renshaw is Fritzi’s daughter and mother of Tara.”

If Tara was born in 1979, it seems unlikely that she can be the child of Nona Renshaw who played in a European Championship in 1950. It is, however, possible that Tara's age has been misquoted.

It came as a surprise to me. The source is a BW member who is generally knowledgeable and authoritative.

I wanted people to be clear about what they were voting on. If they didn't like the choices, they could always abstain or vote other.

Bidding on is trap bidding of the worst sort.

Worst possible shape, minimum HCP (including three Jacks) and no intermediates, partly offset by great controls. I pass.

South's pass is beyond belief. He does not particularly wish to invite his partner to bid on and he has great defence.

I don't play a 1NT response as forcing.

I think it's premature to commit to spades since this might not be the right denomination.
