Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: 8 A75 AKQ86 JT43
Eric, I don't understand your reference to "diplomatic immunity". I don't need to make any arguments because this isn't a debate and I don't care. You can have the "win" :-)
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: 8 A75 AKQ86 JT43
I am curious why everyone (ok, might be an exaggeration) attribute so much value to passed/unpassed status. It's true that certain shapely hands are no longer possible when partner didn't open a weak 2 or a preemptive 3 (etc) here but when it comes to ...
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: 8 A75 AKQ86 JT43
Eric, I don't expect to convince anybody. And you are correct, why would my view be worth anything? I may however cause some players to reflect and notice from now on which worked best on every similar deal they encounter. Many long held beliefs never get challenged because they ...

I would not expect such a good hand for 1, as stated above.
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: 97632 K764 K42 6
Then 5 depends on 2-2. Is that really a 4 bid?
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: 97632 K764 K42 6
I agree. 1 is somewhere between bad and horrible IMO. This is also from a bidding panel, but problem setting there was partner's hand over 2 (and this hand bid 1 IRL).
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: 97632 K764 K42 6
Can you construct a hand where 5 is too high, consistent with the jump?
