Jeff Ford's bidding problem: AT QJ73 865 9876
Good point Jeff. With another queen this is a PH limit raise. 3H could be quite weak so 3 is probably the best description.
ACBL surcharge at tournaments good or bad?
If you can't afford outings, you can't afford outings. That's unfortunate, but it doesn't change the cost of running a bridge tournament, or running the ACBL. Bridge is pretty inexpensive -- about the cost of three beers (or two here in Seattle).

I count this hand as about 2-1/2 cover cards: SA, HQ about 1/2, plus possible spade ruff, but only one trick on defense. The HJ would be more valuable in any other suit, so this hand has only 6 working HCP. Not enough defense for a mixed raise ...
