Amber Lin's bidding problem: AJ8x Jxx K9x Jxx
Thanks Michael! That makes a lot of sense. Quick follow-up... it seems like a decent number of people voted for treating this hand as a limit raise. Do you have any thoughts on that, or maybe how much better values wise (let's say same shape) it'd need to ...

Thank you so much to Jan and all the coaches for all the effort put into planning and organizing this event! I just want to flag that I believe the U21 and Women U26 match dates are flipped! Women U26 should be July 10-11th and U21 should be July 17-18th ...

Amber Lin's bidding problem: 72 J AKQJ973 AQ8
Thanks so much for the reply, Bobby! Something interesting that came up in the post-mortem for this hand was when to "fake a 2H reverse" instead. I posted a follow-up bidding poll with hopefully a more contentious hand, maybe can try to create more of a discussion there (not totally ...
