What Would You Do - What SHOULD You Do?
Steve: No, sir. Perhaps you would be "striving to be canonized." I suggest that assigned motives to others based on your Weltanschauung is the peak of egotism. I am sure you aware that "selective judgement" is oxymoronic and are using it that way on purpose.
What Would You Do - What SHOULD You Do?
How about if she went to the smoking area to find out the results of a FIFA qualification match, but did not smoke? Would it be different if some other sport were involved?
What does this 4Heart bid mean ?

Stig Holmquist's bidding problem: AJ9 83 K832 9852
Assuming 2NT asks for a singleton and risk 4 if partner shows short Clubs and otherwise bid 3 ready to apologize for down one. FWIW, I do not like your agreement. Fourth seat Two Spade openings should, I think, show offense and lack of defense. KQJxxx xx KQTx ...
