Richard Traxler's bidding problem: KQ Q765 Q53 AK32
In my partnership partner's double shows four hearts, since our double does not guarantee four. Obvious 4 bid now.
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: AJ963 KQ2 84 KJT
You opened 1. Within the constraints of this choice, I would pass 1N unless 2N can show this specific shape and size. 2 is an option but it misrepresents everything about your hand.
Richard Traxler's bidding problem: T953 642 A52 KQJ
Double. No shape for a trump contract. Lead a heart and lead them again.
Richard Traxler's bidding problem: QJ84 KJT73 7 972

I've played a 10-14 HCP notrump denying 4M (except 4M333 is allowed) for years very effectively in MP. 2C (GI) is used as a range ask with 2D showing 10-12. All other responses show game accepts: 2M = M doubleton (32 majors, with 2N asking if interested for longer or ...

I'm experimenting with a system (for pairs only, which I call 'Ebony Club') that has some similar attributes but approaches the spade suit differently - the logic being that a decent hand with spades can be ...
Karel de Raeymaeker's bidding problem: J KQ9763 J AKQ73
This is all about West. IMO an immediate 5 bid would imply weakness and to push for an early 'final decision' between P and X by NS. The delayed raise is to make, expecting to only lose two round suit tricks. I would make the same 6 bid ...
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: JT732 Q86 AQ J52
Not enough trump to support a pass out of 2X.
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: JT732 Q86 AQ J52
I plan on not selling out to 2 if they languish there. The only benefit derived from a 2 bid now is that it might alter their super-accept auction, but the downside of being doubled by a strong North outweighs this. Pass - let partner have a bid, see ...
Interesting hand
(P) 1N (2) X; (3) 4 (4)? AP
