Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: K5 A65 KQ43 J432
Partner may or may not be balanced. If he is unbalanced, he can remove 1N. But if he is balanced and I bid 2, there is no way back to 1N.
David Parsons's bidding problem: KJ954 K9532 --- AQT
Partner has some wastage in diamonds. He is unlikely to hold everything you need.
Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: KQ4 KT5 AKQ QJ76
2--let's see what he has. We are on our way to 7N unless he holds a void. In that case, we are on our way to 7 of his suit.
David Parsons's bidding problem: AT63 3 Q653 7654
Note that the opening bid in the Lawrence example hand was 1. Partner can remove at the 1-level in any strain. That is one reason you can afford to reopen so light. When the opening bid is 1 of a major, you need a little more to compensate for ...
David Parsons's bidding problem: AT63 3 Q653 7654
Sorry, my comment was ambiguous. It means I think this hand is too bad to reopen.
Steve Weinstein's bidding problem: T8xx x K9xx KQxx
the standard definition for a mixed raise is 7-9 4-card support and "some shape" which means at least one doubleton. I would mixed raise on: * KJxx, xx, KTx, xxxx * AKxx, xx, Qxxx, xxx The singleton on the actual hand is big because it reduces the loser count by one. On ...
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: T54 AJ6 AKQ3 JT4
This is a much better NT call than takeout double. The clubs are no reason to fear NT--RHO only showed 3 of them. It is quite unlikely the enemy can do much damage by running clubs. The only reason to hesitate to bid 1N is the strength. This hand is ...
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: --- Q86 8642 AKJ742
If partner has 3 KC outside of spades, 7 is in play. However, I don't think this hand is good enough for exclusion RKC. I'd really like a 4th heart, or the heart jack, or the club queen before I use exclusion or all of the above ...
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: K5 A65 KQ43 J432
You hold a balanced minimum without spade support. The call for that hand type is 1N, not 2C.
David Parsons's bidding problem: AT63 3 Q653 7654
There has to be a bottom limit for double, and this hand exceeds it.
