Believe that an opening bid opposite an opening bid should have some play for 1NT.

Wish I could play more bridge.

What accomplishment earned this letter
Is it time to have (master)point-less events?
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AKQ95 JT4 --- AKQ87
If partner is 1282 maybe I can still save a few imps going down in 4. The S9 persuades me maybe I can crush J10x, and clubs split 33....
Shawn Drenning's lead problem: J6 AQ8 K62 98753
Did p forget to open in 3rd seat?
Assess the credit. What is the best bid?
Could north have AQJx in spades? Or maybe should north have had that hand -- what would 5S have meant?
Why is the accepted point range for bidding as it is?
Even traditionally, if responder has (about) 6+ HCP, s/he must respond. But a response does not guarantee 6+ HCP. e.g. it's not good bridge to pass 1 with Q10xxxx xx xxxx x.
How do you raise?
I'm just not that bothered about missing game. I'm sure to be in hearts by bidding 2H. Sure I might lose to those in 4H but I'll have company in 2, and I think over many boards the low road pays most at matchpoints.
When does a "Takeout Double" of 1!C become Ineffective?
I choose takeout in the sense that we prioritise the majors. At 1+C or less I prefer the 2C overcall as natural.
Suggested methods after “problem” reverse of 1H-1N(f)-2S?
No, in that it's important to show shape. I think of the 1H 2S bid as more like a heart rebid (while showing side distribution).
Suggested methods after “problem” reverse of 1H-1N(f)-2S?
Slightly different take but relates to this problem. Using 2C as Gazzilli takes power hands out of 1H 1N 2S, allowing the direct reverse to promise 4-6. Opener is thus less inclined to pull to hearts having already promised 6.

I reckon I would have made this on a diamond lead ...
