This hand came up in the bidding room on BBO:

North
AK10
AKQJ3
A
AK84
South
65
10854
962
10763

South is dealer, you are favourable and the auction is uncontested. How would you bid it in your favourite partnership?

 

Our first attempt was as follows:

 

North
AK10
AKQJ3
A
AK84
South
65
10854
962
10763

W
N

S
1NT
P
7NT

Should North bid 7N? I polled this hand a while back: http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bidding-problem-11578/

Anyway South told North to stop messing around, this isn't a joke. Lets bid it again and get it right:

North
AK10
AKQJ3
A
AK84
South
65
10854
962
10763

Perhaps this 2 NF malarky isn't that clever..... Do Welland+Auken really play 2 as NF?

And once more playing no methods:

North
AK10
AKQJ3

AK84
South

10854
962
10763

Yet another hand which makes me wish that I knew as much about cardplay as I do about silly systems.....
