David Parsons's bidding problem: Q83 AKJ97 A53 86
Or both majors.
A Round from the Reisinger
Echoing Paul comments: am I to assume that sitting with a balanced 21 count behind a strong NT, expert practice is to pass in direct seat?
Would you DELIBERATELY take advantage of a penalty card?
Just because you are allowed to take advantage of a situation doesn't mean that you have to! I am sure I am not the only one who understand Ai-Tai's point. It never feels good when one takes advantage of you, even though it is legal; it feels wrong ...

David Libchaber's bidding problem: KJ965 J A742 K75
You do know that they have an 8 card fit in . As it happens, both 2 for them and 3 for you make.

David Libchaber's bidding problem: 832 QT97 87 KQ73
Because Dummy will be more agressive knowing that there is a fit.
