My Foreward
Foreever? I'm guessing foreword...
Michael Kopera's bidding problem: 87654 8 654 KJ87
Hmm, kind of forgot about this one...a sanity check. The person who held this hand not only thought about bidding 4, he did so. Caught a balanced 18-19 with zero play for 4, in fact went down 2, doubled. The opponents could make 2. Could have ...
Brian Zhang's lead problem: 953 KJ2 975 9854
Guessing we're playing 3rd/low rather than 4th idea what "standard" is, my opponents have claimed they are playing "standard", upon clarification that can be either.

Raphael Hallerman's bidding problem: KQ72 AKQJ42 73 2
I have 7 tricks, optimistically 8, partner has 1...what am I missing?
Raphael Hallerman's bidding problem: KQ72 AKQJ42 73 2

Lucy Zhang's bidding problem: AJT4 T76 K3 QJ98
Well, I voted for second choice was 2 (I think ok on values for 2, I pulled in a notch because only 2 card support).
What does this 3!d bid mean?
I have never ever heard of it, so I would vote for "not" normal. Nor would I play it.
