Is the Best Defense Double Dummy?
If declarer isn't void in clubs you are always beating the hand, so assume he is. It is hard to see how ruffing and exiting with a trump can be inferior to leading a diamond or putting down the ace of clubs. I love Tony's construction. Of course ...
What do you do about this curious explanation
When you get that kind of explanation, the magic word is: DIRECTOR
Low-level Penalty
Right Andy. If you overcall 1 with AKJx of hearts and out you don't have to worry about later rounds of bidding, since you aren't going to bid anything else unless partner forces you to do so. When you do so on a strong hand where you ...
How do you play Picture Bid when the choice is 3M or 4M?
If it is this complicated, perhaps that is an indication that you shouldn't be playing picture bids.

What is fair.
Several issues here: Did the partnership really have the agreement that 2 showed the majors? If that is firmly established, then N-S are not entitled to an adjustment based on MI, since they didn't receive any MI. If that is not firmly established, then the assumption is mistaken ...
