Ron Smith's bidding problem: J98642 AJT43 A K
The ODR is surprisingly low for a 6-5 pattern. This hand has 2.5 defensive tricks. You may be closer to a plus score on defense than on offense. Another factor is the meaning of responder's double of 3D. If that double shows "cards", not penalty, the case for ...
Jannes van 't Oever's bidding problem: T4 Q975 AQJ983 7
Any games will be in hearts, and I can always convert partner's 2N or 3 response to 3 if partner does not fit hearts, so I'll start with double.
Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: KQ976 95 952 A64
Partner has an opening hand with length in diamonds and, judging from RHO's failure to raise clubs, length in clubs as well. Our outside shape is poor. Discretion will be the better part of valour.
Chris Derrick's bidding problem: AK6532 K5 --- KJ643
If our opponent is sane, he noticed the colors before he bid. I am not doubling on this offensive hand.
David Patterson's bidding problem: K53 8 Q543 AK987

Yehudit Hasin's bidding problem: AKQJ T AKJT AJT4
This is a classic problem hand type and the best bidding approach has been debated for many years. In a standard 2C structure, one option is to jump in the singleton to show a 4-4-4-1 or 4-3-1-5 (with 5 minor). That method has significant advantage when a strong 3-suiter comes ...
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: QT762 KJ3 J76 84
Richard, it couldn't be your evil twin. Your evil twin would STILL be bidding ;)
Agreed. If seeding could ever accurately represent ability, this is a team that would have been seeded far higher.
Joshua Donn's bidding problem: --- QT642 --- JT987632
I am willing to open 4C. Pass and preempt later loses so much equity.
Congratulations Fleisher team!
