Rotaru and Nistor Win LM Pairs
Nice win my dudes!
Karen (Kate) McCallum's bidding problem: 7xxx KT9 J7 QJ8x
Hopefully saying what others are thinking... clear 3NT. We have 25 points and some useful pips. Sure, I'm worried about the spade switch but not enough to risk (what I see as) a very anti-field action. Hopefully partner plays 3NT a trick better than the field, whether it is ...
Is this Exclusion Blackwood?
Hi Frances. Yes, I usually like 1-P-4 to be natural. Jumping to game with a long suit on the first round of the auction has been a long-term winner for me so I aim not to lose any of those bids to conventions. I like 1-P-3NT as ...
Play 1NT
Someone has been reading Fredin's book!
Is this Exclusion Blackwood?
I play a lot of exclusion (in many non-jump situations where most would play cue-bids or something else), but bidding 5 here would not be exclusion for me for several reasons. Most important is 'jump to game on the first round of the auction is to play'.

T'Pau and the Winkle
What's the definition of a winkle? I thought it was an ending where either defender is able to win the exit, but whoever does will have something bad happen to them (often be endplayed or stepping-stoned). The theme is that someone has been squeezed down to a bare honour ...
Cue bid over a pre empt.
I like this. It fits in with an idea I've been thinking about a bit: (3)-Dbl-(P)-4 is a slam try in an suit (bid 4NT and I'll tell you which). Helps to separate the 5m bids which are just having a bash because ...
Winning At Wilcox
Who are we kidding? Floyd was obviously hoping declarer would finesse on the next round :)
Playing your 2 Aces on the same trick?
Just wanted to say cool hand, and to partly negate the first two top-level comments which were both negative. Keep posting!
