Matthew Brown's bidding problem: Qxx --- KQxx KJT9xx
On this auction it would surprise me if partner had both minor aces. Edit: I should have added “, unless something’s missing in trumps.”
Matthew Brown's bidding problem: Qxx --- KQxx KJT9xx
It’s impossible for partner both to bid 6H and pass 7H without 1st-round heart control, and it’s too much to expect a double void. Assuming the hA, then, had s/he the AKJxx(x) and both minor aces as well, it would be pusillanimous to consult us rather ...
Mike Ma's bidding problem: KJ5 AK92 Q853 52
“The only question”? I can think of others: 1) Why would opener double 1NT facing a poss. yarborough when not even on lead? 2) If s/he is trying to flag a club lead, how can s/he expect responder to get it right? 3) Do we need to redouble ...
Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: Jx K7xx xx A8xxx
Over 3C, partner bids 3NT...worse yet, after a pregnant pause. Feeling contented?

Marten La Haye's bidding problem: 4 AT6 AQ654 AKJ8
(Remember this the next time you’re undecided between a 1S and a 2S overcall.) Even with a single stopper, partner may be able to hold up enough rounds. Pass.
David Parsons's bidding problem: A9632 6 J9863 K4
2NT at MP’s, 3D at imps.
Is the 3 heart bid forcing and how many hearts does it show?
Impossible to begin by forcing, find out about a double fit, and still want to stop on a dime. 100% forcing.
Nigel Kearney's bidding problem: J76 AKT98 T75 32
With our game humming along, I wouldn’t stir things up, but early-on or needing a board, I’d “commit” a 3H bid.
Kevin O'Dea's bidding problem: A643 AJT65 7 AK2
Agreed. As I mentioned upthread, I would never risk it undiscussed.
