Do you open either of these hands?
For interest, K&R evaluates the first hand as 12.8 and the second as 12.6. Change the club 4 to the 9 and the second becomes 12.9. Both are close in my view, but as I have a light opening style with most of my partners I ...

Joe Clark's bidding problem: Q3 8653 AT2 AK86
Thanks, score corrected. Richard are you saying you would also start with 2C with Qx xxx ATxx AKxx? In my view being forced to bid 2C on the hand I have above loses out on some valuable penalty options, particularly at this vul where you might get rich. I just ...
