Glorious Dummies

Dave Caprera recently posted a deal where he had AKQxxxxx opposite Annie's (Precision) 1 opening.  We mortals have to be content with finding our glory as dummy with rather less spectacular hands.  Both of these were from our first match in the Reynolds May KO.

1 was Precision, I bid 1 in case the auction continued 2-X-P to me, when I could bid 2 and at least be reasonably sure we had an 8-card fit.

What do you think your chances are?  Yep, I thought that too; I wanted to crawl under my chair when partner bid 3NT.

Here was the full deal:

I was out for this quarter, but finished my chores for the day in time to kibitz this wonder.  2NT was alerted as a 4+ card raise.  The entire deal:

So the question is, which was the better dummy?  Sorry, only one vote to a customer.

Hand 1
Hand 2
Craig, why do you even think about such things?
Both were great!
