Bill Segraves's bidding problem: AKQT5 AKQ4 853 4
I copied 3-way Drury from someone some time ago: 2D=4-card. 2C=3-card, either constructive raise 1M-2C-2D-2M or limit raise 1M-2C-2D-2oM, then 2N by opener next is like Jacoby 2N.
Ronald Vickery's bidding problem: JT9532 K83 AK7 8
Most would treat this as a forcing pass situation by definition, but a written definition can be complicated. For clarity here I like to use double over 3 (through 4) showing strength and creating the forcing pass, while 4 could be the "playing strength" game-accept.
Bill Segraves's bidding problem: AKQT5 AKQ4 853 4
Without partner's redouble of 4, ten tricks may be our limit. Like others, I would have simply bid 4 on the second round.
David Parsons's bidding problem: 6 AKQ4 97643 T93
2. My limit-raise value is based on play in diamonds, not 3NT which my partner may bid over 3. Because spades were not raised, partner is quite likely to have 4-card length there, but did not bid 1NT over 1, so my strategic underbid, hoping to bid ...
Online tempo
Like others, I think tempo breaks usually do indicate a choice of bids/plays by an opponent. And I can't avoid noticing my slow-typing partner's tempo break when he describes his self-alert to the opponents.
Joshua Donn's lead problem: Q852 K852 J73 J4
Hoping for partner's ace-fifth...
Can Eser Yurtsever's bidding problem: Kx xxxx AQxxx xx
2 on 2nd round, then 3 over 3 next round. I play 3 is forcing following the cuebid.
Richard Granville's lead problem: J76 32 AT7 AT873
I think we may need to get at our diamond tricks before declarer leads up to dummy's clubs.
Marten La Haye's bidding problem: KQ976 8 QJ2 AKQ3
I like the agreement that 3 here invites with a fifth spade, as suggested by Henry below, so 2NT followed by 3 would show the 4-card invite. I like bidding only 4 now, as suggested by Henry and others, not trying to seek out the AAK hand ...
Team match hand records on BBO
I am able eventually to get team results always--scores and the play records from my table. But I presume the contracts and play records from the other table are not available?
