Break In Tempo
If partner leads a diamond, I would continue diamonds and give partner a ruff when in with my spade ace. 2 spades, 2 hearts, 1 diamond, 1 club. West has a tough problem over double. 3 would be the winning call since we only beat 2 by 1 ...
FP situation? If not who should bid 5?
I don't think passing this out was a crime. Yes, South knows some action must be right, but no knowing which, sometimes the best you can do is make a non-forcing pass and hope partner knows.
Odd situations
Gordon's point is spot on. We don't gain by reversing the symmetry, so don't. Just bid naturally. On this specific auction, with no overcall in spades, we likely won't run into a decent 5 card suit with either hand, so it seems pointless to even worry ...
Break In Tempo
I expect in a poll of players a majority would double when playing takeout doubles. The huddle suggests double might well be more successful than bidding 3 since it caters to whatever partner wants. I don't see what about the huddle suggests 3 will be the winning ...

Exactly Steve!
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: KJ9852 976 --- 8632
I did not see an alert to 4. We were just told forcing. I expect one of the bids I am allowed to make over 4 is 5. Partner could be 6-6 in the minors for all we know.
Multi-section or web - which is best?
Must be a nice problem to have.
I need help with probabilities
Kantar's 1430 book is easily the most damaging bridge book of all time. Does not matter if you think the method is superior, or the book of high quality; the number of absolute disasters it has caused in the bridge world is astonishing. Every day in every club someone ...
