Yellow Systems - A Dire Discovery
"Or" is an ambiguous word. When we are speaking about logic, we should distinguish the "inclusive or", OR, from the "exclusive or", XOR. So: "A 1♣ opening shows either three or more clubs, or it shows two clubs" = (3 OR 4 OR 5 OR ... OR 13) XOR (2) "Shows either ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Ray Yuenger: You are assuming that E's comment was not simply an elaboration of the UI being made available to the rest of the table by the long hesitation. I think that such an assumption is wrong. According to the writeup, North justified his diamond lead with: (a) Not ...
Restricted choice: real life example
Restricted choice is just how Reese named Bayes' theorem in bridge. Borel & Cheron explain what Reese was to name "restricted choice" as Bayes' theorem, i.e. as probability of causes (they often use Laplace's wording in their book.) I think that you can easily find several real life example ...

Rare double squeeze almost.
As to double stepping stone squeezes, you can look at Kelsey, Double Squeezes, pages 66-69. There are also double vice and double winkle in that book.
What's the name of this squeeze?
I'd say that it is a surplus winner strip-squeeze, because West must give up his spade length to keep the clubs control and the hearts fragile stopper: - one suit (diamonds) has the squeeze card - in one suit (spades) LHO (or whoever the squeeze is against) has winners - there is ...

DIAMOND Wins Spingold
I think that the real difference is between 1NT-then-Pass (points, heart stopper, eventual diamond length) and 2-then-Double (points but nothing about red colors).
A strange opening lead
Yes. In the actual hand, at least. West: AJxx xx Kxxx Jxx East: Qxx Jxx xx Axxxx
