Richard Traxler's bidding problem: KQTxxx AQ --- AKTxx
1 - 5 Pass.
Recommend a partnership style
Newer players notoriously over and under bid. At MPs, it's fine to persistently underbid and let results move people to the center. E.g. 2S+2 will get some matchpoints for being in the right strain, some declarers may be 4S-1 anyhow. But when students see zeroes for 2S ...
Louk Verhees's bidding problem: QT9 A986543 --- 653
I once had a partner raise my 3 preempt to 4 with 5-5-1-2 shape.
Yet Another What's This Double
I think all suit bids by advancer are natural (including 2).
Against 1, there's something to be said for a few Roman jump overcalls (rather than natural, weak) which can be bid on the shapely minimums: (1) ? - 2 = 4+, 5+ - 3 = 4+, 5+ - 3 = 4+, 5+ They are an ...
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: T7xxx Qx AJTx xx
(Without discussion) I think 4 would be more like: AQxxx xx AJ10x xx ? Concentration in my bid suits. Or more crudely, just a slam try (yes I know 2N-then-4 can be played as that).
João Faria's lead problem: KJ632 KQ93 T 854
Seems like a clear double fit hand.
Dave Robinson's bidding problem: AQJ987 T2 AJ6 76
if you wanted to lie, 2 is probably better -- at least you will then find out if partner is bidding a non forcing 2 next. As far as I know raising 2 to 3 then is still non forcing.
ATB : Expensive Misdefense
@MR, after I failed to return partner's singleton lead for the third time in a session, partner told me something like: "How about I only ever lead a singleton [in a side suit]?" Zack Madden might remember more clearly his exact words. And no, we didn't do well ...
Adam Parrish's bidding problem: QT63 KJ KJ93 A52
Only bid below 3NT to show support. x A Q x x x A Q x x x x x isn't a huge hand, but good for diamonds.
