Raises to five of the agreed major suit?
I do not know whether Michael Rosenberg was channeling Alan Hiron from 35-40 years ago in Bridge Magazine. He wrote something that was very similar to what MR wrote here. There is also something relevant in Jeff Rubens' splendid articles on BJ Becker in 1981/2. in Bridge World.
Bermuda Bowl RR3: MONACO vs. CHINA
At double dummy, would south have beaten 3NT by ducking H!10? I don't think North could ever work out to continue the suit unless the tempo from south (plus his bridge IQ) were good enough that North could play for that.

No Toronto Bulletin Today
I'm NOT part of the bulletin team though I contribute to it. Yesterday was the first day since 1997 that I haven't been into the office to contribute or check up on what was going on. (I missed ABQ 1997). So if you want to blame someone it ...
