A Small Request
Christopher - thank YOU! Now I gotta go read it! :)
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AKT953 K8 AT74 3
Richard - again, a reasonable point. But - would 4 be some moderate 6 card suit without extras? I dunno.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AKT953 K8 AT74 3
Honestly, Ron? Not sure. Once you don't show a strong hand with a long, good spade suit.... How does partner know if you are NOW showing that kind of a suit - or - just cue bidding, with diamonds "our suit"?
A Small Request
Paul and Richard; you boys are too funny! (BTW - just spoke with my mom's caretaker, who live about 45 minutes north of Richard... She told me exactly what you did, Paul - FREEZING! I told her that up here in the frozen tundra, we don't even THINK about wearing ...

Thank YOU, Neal!

Ron Smith's bidding problem: AT5 AKQT7 KQT5 A
So you are driving to game, David? (I play that 3 here guarantees hearts and is GF....) You are surely correct that you don't need much from partner to make game. Yet if partner has the wrong tiny something, game won't make. People are posting tough problems ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AKT953 K8 AT74 3
You are right, Ron. But partner will never correct to spades with 4 and Jx or Qx of spades. And partner doesn't know that you have an excellent 6-4 with very good spades, either. Not being critical of your choice! Part of why I think this is a ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AKT953 K8 AT74 3
Toughie. I can see bidding 2, 3 and my choice - 3. I just hope I guessed right!
