Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: AQ852 Q876 Q9 T7
Unfortunately, I do not know. At the table there was a BIT by north over 2, which is reason for poll.
Sharp Practice?
It seems you are not convinced "Mr. Sharp" made an honest mistake, so regardless of the ruling it seems like this is worth filing a recorder form (or whatever the equivalent is in your jurisdiction). One hand doesn't really mean anything, but if he really is being "sharp" here ...

Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: 4 AKQ972 AJ872 6
4nt didn't occur to me over 2, but agree it would have made things easy. That said, 6H could be the better scoring slam too (and in fact with hearts three-three it was) Over 4 I agree that all we care about is key cards, but at ...
What is 4!C?
Curious if this is same hand as
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: 4 AKQ972 AJ872 6
