John McAllister's bidding problem: 4 AQ4 KTxxxx QTx
Definitely would not have bid 2D. Would much rather encourage opponents to compete and try to defend

Ian-- pretty simple for this one, I think. The weaker hands that want to compete come up more frequently, so it makes sense to play the direct action as the weaker bid. Additionally, when we are "weaker" the opponents are more likely to continue to compete, another supporting reason to ...

Venky, I echo Zach's thoughts. I would add that it is also highly beneficial to kibitz top players. I have done a lot of kibitzing in my day and always find it enjoyable and helpful.

Hi John, the trend of bidding 1NT without a stopper is definitely notable. The reasons for doing so can be varied, however. In this case, Zach bids 1NT because he feels it is the best overall bridge bid for he hand. Another plus is that it puts the 1C opener ...
