Was I injured
How could West have enough HCP to invite?
Jack Feagin's bidding problem: AQT96 2 KJT7 932

Since a 1NT response guarantees at least 2-card spade support, responder can bid 2S with 5 spades and no game interest. With game interest, he bids NMF.
Rebid Problem?
3 because it's where I want to play the hand if partner is very weak. 2NT is odds-on to get a negative score across from a minimum partner with no club honor. IMHO the hand is just too strong for a 2 rebid. 2? I foresee ...
True North American Championships Coming
Is this proposal to build a 30-foot orange barrier a joke, or some sort of plot by the citrus industry? I demand that these fruitist suggestions be ended and that barriers be built from apples and peaches, at least in alternate years!!!
