Liam Milne's bidding problem: AKQJ72 J9 T874 8
We’ve apparently reached an impasse. Moving on...
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: 2 Q953 KT83 AKJ5
The latter implication is far less-applicable when, as here, partner could have as little as a borderline non-response.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AKQJ72 J9 T874 8
We don’t yet know if we need to...we just need that *option*.
Many choices, many levels
Indeed...and if pulling doesn’t work out: next stop, partnership desk.
ATB -640
(They won’t if XX is *agreed* as SOS, for you would then be required to *alert* it as such.)
ATB -640

Great Players; Great Books

Leo Lasota's bidding problem: A653 AQ A3 QJT98
(Just imagine the same opening lead in a strain wherein a ruff is impossible!)
Nick Doe's bidding problem: KJ986 T87 A652 Q
Why would North remove a NV undoubled 2S to 3 of a suit not worth preempting originally? With that, s/he could simply pass and *then* run (if need be). Without prior discussion of PH status, North ought not disturb the agreed understanding.
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: 2 Q953 KT83 AKJ5
Well put.
