Kieran Dyke's bidding problem: QJ52 --- QJT9652 K3
While I understand the problems associated with a 1-1 start, I fail to see how we find a 44 spade fit otherwise. Unless you want to write off that possibility and stick to a diamond trump suit (assuming 2/1, bid 1N then), we must show the spade ...
Karel de Raeymaeker's bidding problem: AJTxx xxx x 98xx
They likely have a VUL 3N (or possibly 5D). A 3 bid will cram the auction and we should be able to hold for down 1. Only bidding 2 keeps the Western cue available.
Frances Hinden's bidding problem: 42 J53 A53 A9743
Description? "We've never had an action double after a 3-level major suit pre-empt before" is not a description - it's history. I stand by my expectation.
Frances Hinden's bidding problem: 42 J53 A53 A9743
Fair enough. Partner has to lead his/her other minor to pull this off. Lacking the K, you have no other choice than to bid up.
Frances Hinden's bidding problem: 42 J53 A53 A9743
This is a pure penalty double. Maximum defense. Expect A, a minor suit void and some trump. Add these two tricks to your expected take and leave it in if you can determine the minor void or bid up.
Who should 'scape whipping?
The singleton K argues for competing to 4.
Kieran Dyke's bidding problem: KQT7 K73 J AK975
The fact that the opponents haven't bid their 10 card diamond fit tells me to bid on. Either they have nothing of note, the suits are splitting, or they're asleep. I like 3...
Karel de Raeymaeker's bidding problem: x Txx AQJ98xx Kx
"The prospects for game are far too good to bid either two or three diamonds." Game in diamonds only. Just like a pre-empt. Partner is going to expect more defense once the opponents come in - and they will over a simple 1 opening. This hand occupies the 'Goldilocks' of ...
Worthwhile Gamble
Also - do you always push to the 3level with a potential 8card fit?
Worthwhile Gamble
Sorry I edited my response before I saw your comments. Does my adjusted hand make more sense as a 2 response?
