Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Andrzej Knap's lead problem: QT85 T K4 QT8742
If 1 is 3+ I strongly prefer showing club support instead of bidding my mediocre side 4 bagger on my first turn.
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: T K9832 8642 AT8

"If this really bothers you, you can give up playing 1NT opening 10-12 non-vulnerable." I would never do that. Weak/mini NT is very strong, in my experience. Good response! :-)
Yet another what does 4NT mean
Michael - yes, for me PDI applies, which means double is still takeout and pass strongly requests a double, may be penalty. Since double is takeout of the unbid suit (clubs), and we can bid a forcing 4 bid instead, double shows a fair bit of interest in defending.

Paul Block's bidding problem: A5 A86 74 KQ9653
No hurry to bid 1NT when you can bid and rebid clubs.
Yet another what does 4NT mean
Pass is F1 but at this level it is not really profitable to play pass as a slam try or takeout/penalty. At this level pass just shows some propensity to defend; if I bid over partner's double it just denies interest in competing to the five level over ...
Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: J9643 98 Q96 KT9
Somewhat confused as to what this bidding sequence shows. How often does this partnership make 3 card raises of responder's major?
Change of Heart
That makes sense. So partner is known to be balanced. Then, the only issue with this structure is that you can have a GF opposite the balanced hand but want to stop with the minimal unbalanced hand. That seems hard. Something has to go away and one approach would be ...
