David Goldfarb's bidding problem: Q953 96 KQ653 QT
My partner's hand was Jxxx Kxx 9x AK9x, and even 3S was uncomfortably high. He felt my 3 was an overbid: I felt that my hand was worth a limit raise even if the Q was a low card, and certainly was worth a limit raise with it ...
David Goldfarb's bidding problem: K83 A K842 A9654

The hand I held was 654 QT4 J53 KJT7, so NS should be competing in clubs. The question is how – I like the idea of bidding 2C over 1NT, actually.

Daniel Jackson's bidding problem: JT --- A976532 JT63
With one partner, I play almost exactly that, except it's the jump shift in the other minor rather than the jump shift in spades.
Daniel Jackson's bidding problem: JT --- A976532 JT63
If I'm reading the above correctly, a 4 opening is preemptive, a 4 response to a 1 opening is Minorwood.
Daniel Jackson's bidding problem: JT --- A976532 JT63
Vulnerable with a poor suit and a side void, I wouldn't choose 3, but I wouldn't be very angry with a partner who did. 5 now seems like a call with quite a few potential upsides. It isn't ironclad, but very little in bridge ever ...
