Selena Pepić's bidding problem: 9862 AQJ4 82 752
It wont take much for the enemy to make 2--the king of hearts in the dummy and partner producing only 3 defensive tricks would do it. In contrast, it takes a huge hand from partner to produce 5 tricks and beat them 3 to win 9 IMPs. Pass is ...
Phillip Martin's bidding problem: 2 AQ8 AQ9852 A62
The hand is too good for 2, but 3 comes with drawbacks. It is space consuming and doesn't describe the hand very completely. Partner will likely have to guess when picking the final strain. I'd rather make a cheap 2 rebid, planning to bid 2 ...
Phillip Martin's bidding problem: 2 AK7 KQ762 JT63
Well said.
Up-the-line, Walsh or in between in response to 1C in 2/1 GF?

I think the question boils down to whether you'd like to defend 1NT or 2. It is likely the enemy have a 5-2 spade fit.
David Parsons's bidding problem: 864 963 KQT92 97
in second seat partner often has a good hand. The upside for light preempts comes when partner has a bad hand. So, no I would not bid 2D in second seat.
Finn Kolesnik's bidding problem: ATx AKQ Txx KQT9
When the opponents jam to a high level, you must make compromises. You can either have a takeout double, or a card showing double but not both. Of the two, a takeout double is much more valuable. so while I'd like to increase the penalty, I can't. I ...
Meaning of double
Do something intelligent?? Then I am doomed!
David Soukup's bidding problem: J954 QJ432 --- 8752
In my partnerships, the double of 5 is defined as takeout. It is a more difficult decision if double might show a big balanced hand.
