Liam Milne's bidding problem: AKQJ72 J9 T874 8
Thanks all for the compliments on the problem having four different competing 'answers'! I've sent this in to the Bridge World to see if their Master Solvers want to have a go at it.
Board 4, 30th July
Less reason to double. You don't need to protect partner because they could have doubled 2 for penalty (having passed 1)
Bermuda Bowls 30.7.19 Board 2
Both Wests responded 1NT over 1. Rosenberg overcalled 2 as North, Gower as East chose an offbeat 'good-bad' 2NT and his partner pulled to 3, down three. Cope doubled 1NT (N), Garner rebid 2 (E) and Holman competed to 2 (S) making two.
Liam Milne's lead problem: T3 2 AT82 KT9862
Nope. On the hand dummy had a slam force and was thinking about bidding grand (they had a void).
Foreign Competitors in ACBL masterpoint limited events

Double is still Lightner, so we'll be asking for an unusual lead. Partner will probably lead a spade and hope we ruff. Will this change how many tricks we make, and will tipping off declarer that we have all the trumps and other stuff contribute to them making? I ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: A63 7532 KJ8 A97
3NT was the winner here. Partner had an average 12 and was catering for a light shapely double.
John Newman's lead problem: A5 Q764 J875 K62
Great problem. I have no idea.
Fourth suit forcing of passed hand
First question (with the double) is too hard for me. It's not a bid I can imagine myself making. Second question: I have been playing fourth suit by a passed hand is artificial, forcing, and shows some invitational hand with 'annoying shape' i.e. difficult to show by alternative ...
