Board 7 from the 08/14/2018 Common Game
I try not to make my analysis a "what's new in the convention world" type of analysis. Often, as I did this week on Board 1 mention use of the convention BROMADs, but Puppet is different. If a player chooses not to play Puppet that's ok, but players ...

The problem with the HQ is that it is a singleton. Yes! it might add promotion value to partner's heart suit, where if partner has HJ10xxx, the HQ will promote value to partner's J and 10. But because it is a singleton it will be required to be ...

Yes, you are right on both accounts: it is a hard slam to bid and 4S as average is what I expected. But I get the questions all the time "can this slam be bid" and "how would you bid slam". And the only way was for East to treat ...

LOL when the opponents have not found at fit at the 4-level, why would North help them out in the auction?

Sorry my write up did not come over to the Bridge Winners site … Are you saying after 1D North - 1S OC East - 2C South ... North passed 2C?
Board 16 from the 05/22/2018 Common Game
First, West's treatment of 3D is to be commended. It was much harder (if not impossible) for you to get to slam after, the 3D bid over 1NT forcing. One of the first bridge books I acquired was William Root, How to Play a Hand of Bridge .. in it ...

So East overcalled 2H on effectively 9 hcp and a heart suit J1097x filled with intermediates .. this is really bad bridge, regardless vulnerability. The shame is that he got away with a really bad bid and will now think is was good bridge and be encouraged to do it again ...

3C is the alternate place to play this deal, with combined 22 hcp, with combined 24 support points and with 10 clubs between them, E/W should always compete to 2NT or 3C.

Yeah, unfortunate for you, you have a heart stopper but North has a second club stopper.
