Joshua Donn's bidding problem: --- QT642 --- JT987632
IMO, hands with a 3-card difference in length should be treated as 1-suited so I prefer to preempt immediately. 2NT at this point is profoundly misguided--telling the opponents about your shape, without providing adequate preemption on a hand where you have little chance to win the auction.
Fast Arrival and Picture Jumps--the 3NT Slam Try
Yes he does. Major suit bid and raised plus a game force, Therefore 3NT nonserious slam try is on.
Geeske Joel's bidding problem: AK42 A82 T6 T976
This is a mildly strange partscore situation. Normally 2M is an attractive partscore contract at matchpoints. the 4-3 fit often scores better than an alternative minor suit contract. In this case, the alternative partscore is in NT. I.e., if some players choose not to overcall 2 your partner ...
Rainer Herrmann's bidding problem: AT872 J3 JT2 K72
That is true. Maybe you need a few extra percentage points to compensate you for getting too high on some nonaccepts. i am still happy with my choice to invite.
Rainer Herrmann's bidding problem: AT872 J3 JT2 K72

Max Aeschbacher's bidding problem: K8 8432 A62 KJ65
This is the very rare hand where I'd like to be playing Puppet Stayman over 2NT. If partner has a 5th heart, then i am happy to be playing slam in hearts, but as you point out if he only holds 4, then a grand slam is likely to ...
"Maximal" or penalty double by takeout doubler
How do you handle a good hand with 3 hearts, perhaps: xx, KQx, Axxx, AKQx?
Better Notrump Leads
i do not have any such lead convention. But in practice i find that accidents occur much less often than leads from broken suits surrender tricks.
Restricted Choice
Nice to see you here Thomas.
Henry Bethe's bidding problem: QT94 K J7 AQJ732
I remember this hand from a Reese book where he took a couple hundred hands from bidding contests. He reproduced the original articles and then added his own remarks as an ubermoderator. As I recall, Reese liked 1NT on the theory that the hand was a misfit and didn't ...
