Jay Barronen's bidding problem: 8 AT987 AK2 QJ85
Makes sense to have started with 2.
Two-suited Overcalls
There's some comfort that 2-of-a-minor is rarely going to win the battle. The risk of rather large penalties is not neglible though. Still, the opponents have to be able to find the axe.
Two-suited Overcalls
If your suits were specified, then it makes some sense (e.g. Roman jump overcalls). Otherwise, you give up a fair amount. It also depends which suit you are overcalling. e.g. over 1, you can play: - 2 = 4 + 5 (all lengths are minimum expected) - 2 ...
Alex Hydes's bidding problem: AK83 J84 3 AQ852
I reckon I've got about 5?
What's He Doing This Time?
I think p had 4 diamonds in with his hearts.
Adam Meyerson's bidding problem: K4 Q6 AKJ7 J7652
I'm not so keen on deciding on how to get to our optimal contract, so I'll take my +300-1100.
Which club?
At IMPs, I agree that this probably isn't a problem. We just gotta have 4 cashers, and find them (prob via suit preference on the second club).
Which club?
Thanks John. Reminds me of the other KQ109 poll, where I thought the 10 was best ...
Which club?
Kieran, (not that we did) but I think that some people play that when the Q is in dummy (presumably Qxx or longer), the attitude-ask becomes a count-ask?
Which club?
Thanks Kit, very thoughtful. From the poll results, would seem a dud, but the discussion has been very enlightening.
