Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: 2 Q953 KT83 AKJ5
How about if we are bidding spades and they are bidding hearts? Would you bid over 3 or 4?

I'm happy to hear it if others disagree and like seeing posts like this.

IMO, this is pretty spammish and should not be posted on front page.
Memphis hotels
Do you see better rates? This is significantly cheaper than the rates I saw when I looked a month ago (and seems on the low end for a hotel in the downtown of a large city).
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: KQ73 A 6 A976432

Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: Q7 QT3 QJ53 J643
I bid 3 at the table, which made me cringe at the time, but wanted to see what others thought (lest I was too biased from knowing result). We ended up going for -800 (probably should have been -500, but partner was a little frustrated and slipped a trick ...
