2!D opening
Art, I strongly agree about mini-Roman. I have never had a bad result when opps play it, often because one forgot. However, yesterday I was reluctantly playing it at partner’s request, and we got a top. Advancer neglected to raise overcaller’s strong bid to game. I can’t ...
finesse or squeeze
Truscott’s Rule: Anyone can take a finesse. Making a squeeze gets your name in the paper.
Play this slam
Another possibility is playing for a singleton or doubleton club honor. If after the strip it looks like clubs are not 3-3, you could try club A and another. This works about 60% of the time clubs are 4-2 or 5-1. Perhaps not as good as the finesse of the ...
What's your Line of Play?
Richard and Andy, we play constructive raises. North evaluated his hand as not quite a constructive raise. But this article is about the play of the hand. I included the bidding because if I hadn't, there would have been a bunch of "What was the bidding" comments, even though ...

Signing Off in a 5-card Major
Two pairs overbid to 3. (Nick, no to both questions.) One made it, one went down. The rest stopped at 1 or 2, making 2 or 3. (Typical club results.). We tied with the pair that went down in 3.
Signing Off in a 5-card Major
This came up a couple weeks ago with a new partner. When we discussed it, he said he had done a sim which showed playing in the five card major was superior to NT around 75% of the time. Another person confirmed that with his own sim. So playing in ...
Limitations on Dummy
Ed, you are quite correct that dummy can call for a ZT violation, or for similar non-bridge issues. I did not include that in my comment as I was afraid it would just confuse the issue raised by the poster.
