about me

Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: KQ xxx xxx AT9xx
I think (hope) my regular partners would interpret double as this hand type, NOT penalties. In an undiscussed partnership...I might still double. Would not have expected pass to be the plurality call. Partner can have as little as AJxxx AKxxx x xx and 4 is cold on 3-2 ...
Chuck Messinger's bidding problem: Q9 KT8743 2 J642
"six-four, bid one more" ?

Rowland Reeves's lead problem: AJ32 K3 JT KJ754
I probably shouldn't be asking but...what's the problem?
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: T9532 AQ2 AT QJ5
Richard - Bill was speaking as opener, holding AKxxx xx KQJxx x Partner bid 4, so now "whatever partner's black suit concern..." I disagree, though. We already showed the entire hand with 4
Anant Rathi's bidding problem: T7xxx Qx AJTx xx
I described it as a picture bid in both places. "Stronger" is in quotes because it is not meant literally. What's the problem?
