Shailesh Gupta's bidding problem: Axx Axx x AKxxxx
I like 3c the best. This hand has a lot of positives and 3c shows the strength without lying about the distribution.

Shailesh Gupta's bidding problem: A73 K8 AKQ98 K64
Thanks Steve, your comments help clear a lot of my doubts. However, key issue here is that common approach to bid 4 card suits up the line is not applicable here since partner has denied 4 card diamonds (else would have bid inverted minor) So, how the spirit of common ...

Blake Schwartzbach's bidding problem: J9874 K982 K5 84
