Shortest Board Ever
Not the shortest board, but the fastest claim. A few decades ago, i opened 1NT. We had a sequence ending in 7NT. After the last pass, partner faced dummy and said, "Lead." There were around 15 or so sure tricks based on my stated controls.
Slam invite - what does it ask for?
Is 1 forcing? If not, south has already distorted the bidding.
GNT Final: District 9 vs. District 21
On board 29, how did 3 make?
Alert question
The relevance is that your description of 2 seems wrong. If 2 is a limit raise, then it should be something like 9-11. In which case 2 is a normal single raise. If your treatments are different, then an alert is needed as they are unusual and ...

Finesse or not?
Match points. I thought that was clear when I mentioned the field strength. Plus there is no issue if imps. West cannot be void, so I don't know why you mentioned it. But a singleton with east is something to consider. But I think you are missing the real ...
Finesse or not?
I don't recall if they were playing 3rd or 4th leads. They are strong players, good enough to not give me any help with their signals. The only thing I really know is that west probably has no more hearts or spades (though I wouldn't absolutely rule out ...
