What is the largest penalty you have ever seen?
Thanks! That was where I read it. One of the best books written on bridge.
What is the largest penalty you have ever seen?
This reminded me of the Tony Lederer story where he keeps the rubber alive by spectacular defense. His partner congratulates him on the defense and he says "You've seen my card-holding skills. Wait till the next deal. Whereupon the opponents bid and make a grand slam.
What is the largest penalty you have ever seen?

I think that the unethical action is to pass 3 here, since you know partner is playing you for spades and 3S-n is cheaper than 5 doubled-n? You know 3 wont be terrible facing four don't you. Even the 3-3 fit may produce a crossruff? But ...
Do I really need Last Train
Mike Kopera in the post above indirectly makes the important point that (no matter what really happened in the quoted auction) the need for Last train may be obviated if either player has bid 3NT as a non-serious slam try. Here when East limits by doing so continuations should just ...
