Jeroen Wieland's bidding problem: A KQJ84 3 JT6543
They won't make an overtrick.
Nigel Kearney's bidding problem: KJ KJT92 9 AK976
Double = extra value hand with no clear bid.
Jean-Luc Lachance's bidding problem: T83 T92 A853 AK8
KQJxx xx KQxx xx is not everyone's opening bid but 4 is no worse than two three-two breaks. Feels odd to bid only 3 therefore.
