John McAllister's bidding problem: AJT Axxx KJxx Kx
My method: 1NT 3M = SPL 31(54) slam interest 1NT 2NT.....(Puppet Stayman) 3 3.....(3C ="No 5cM". 3D = (31)(54)) 3 asks shortage: -----3 = Low = 31(54) choice of games -----3NT= High =13(54) choice of games 4m by opener is now non-forcing.

What is the best Grosvenor Gambit you've seen?
I was talking with a friend about these posts and they said "2 years ago, didn't you drop the King from KJ over dummy's Q10xxxx against Peter Gill's 3NT? He had Axxx and took the rest." I had completely forgot about this! I think my partner's ...
