This has to be worth 3 by West. Much better than it could be, and you do have something for partner's 's

Yes, 2 should have been an option, and one I think a lot of players would have chosen.

Club managers should email all qualifiers as to which flights they have qualified for, and when and where the next stage is.

246 comments so far. Have we not beaten this unsolvable problem to death? Without details how can we possibly say if the punishment is just?

Peter is correct. If they come to Orlando for a regional and hit Disneyworld one session, that is NOT business.

I agree with Peg. It is impossible to decide from a two paragraph summary at the start of this post. We know no details of Norwegian law or where this money was actually earned. Jail time is harsh, very rare in the US as long as fines and back taxes are paid unless the government can prove beyond any doubt that they intended to cheat and were not just stupid.

4 for both. Anything else might cause problems and mislead partner as to our offensive potential.

I agree with Ed and Ray. This is a treatment as opposed to a convention. If we have to alert every treatment we have with partner the auction would take forever.

Anyone with anywhere near that income is an idiot for not having top-notch legal and tax professionals helping them out. I am a C.P.A. and I know they must have problems separating personal and business expenses during their engagements. Everything from the time they leave home until they return is not business-related. If you make 100k a year you can pay a good professional $100-$200 an hour to look out for the finances.

I agree with John. I like 3 as WJS, and that is about what I have. Get's a good lead and I could not be in too much trouble if doubled. I also seldom play Fit Showing jumps.

I agree with Steve, this is a spade raise, not a GOOD spade raise. The king is nice, but with that length quite probably not needed.

I agree that North was a little bid of a hand hog, but we have all been in much worst slams.

I agree. Failure to double 1NT is criminal. Following with 2NT or 3 NT. South will realize North had a mountain and bid 4

I agree. I will frequently overcall 2 with a decent suit I want led, say KQJxx. No one had ever doubled me because they are either looking for bigger things, or their partner might misinterpret the double.

I agree with Jay. The West hand took a nose dive after the 2 bid. Not all that good anymore.

I have suggested this to tournament directors and was told the players enjoyed comparing and discussion the hands. Did not want to take the social aspect out of the game.

I agree. South is just asking for trouble with 3 with such a bad suit

If North is going to bid 4 why not 4 to give pard a clue as to the distributions?

Debbie,
I have asked both the ACBL and my district director about this. both say this is in the works. Like you, I want to see how my friends are doing. Many regionals do it, why not all?

Why double if you want the expected lead? I would think he is saying do NOT lead a diamond.
