What do you bid over 1 NT ?
I can show and (at least 4-4) with a 2 bid, so I do that. I'll probably find myself bidding 3 on the next round as well.
I don't understand ...
Surely this hand is worth a slam try. It is incredibly unlikely that 3NT makes and 4NT doesn’t. If you can’t make a slam try at MP over 3NT without the ability to stop in 4NT If partner is unsuitable, then you ought to change your methods. This ...
BW 2/1: Opener's 2M Rebid
I think the optimal approach is to use some sort of coded responses which depend on what was opened and what was replied. For a simple (i.e. largely natural) system, I think reverses need to guarantee some sort of extras, so a catch-all bid of 2M is needed for ...

Play this slam
Partner played this hand and took the straightforward finesse, which is certainly the best play for 13 tricks, and might well be the best play for 12 as many have said. As far as I can see the contract is unmakeable as the cards lay - West had Jxxx East ...
