Michael Rosenberg's bidding problem: 9 8 AK52 KJ97542
Patrick, what’s “curious & incredible” is that you could correctly transcribe my “;-)” (i.e., a smiling wink) and still not realize that the statement was tongue-in-cheek. My intended point was that partner is well-aware that we may have been stretching to compete with 3C, and would have taken that into account in opting for 3NT.
Yet another "Is pass forcing"?
For him, similar gratuitous comments are recurrent.

(I thought the concluding sentence of my latest post cleared that up.)
Yet another "Is pass forcing"?
DL - What was your purpose in adding “this is easy”?
Michael Rosenberg's bidding problem: 9 8 AK52 KJ97542
Shame partner is entirely unfamiliar with that scenario. ;-) Once s/he decides on game, it’s just a matter of which strain.
ATB - Undoubled contract
Peg, sympathy is an admirable human emotion... but has a less-than-salutary effect on our score. ;-) As South had no penalty X available, s/he would often be hard-pressed to show competing values.

Good to know, Marshall...I was about to describe you over the public address system. ;-)

TT - You volunteered 3C in direct seat, and partner reacted to that with a game bid. Now you regret having done so? Nuh-uh.
Melanie Manfield's lead problem: QT3 97643 AT2 87
Hmm...sounds like selective memory from the dark side. ;-) Fortunately it’s imps, so assume the contract is beatable; judging from our hand, it would appear to be *makable*.
Brian Davies's bidding problem: AKJT7 K9764 AKJ ---
That would make sense if (1) I forgot to open 2C and (2) partner promised weakness with the voluntary game bid over a preempt.
