Tomislav šAšEk's bidding problem: 4 A KJ7654 AJ853
Why did we bid over partner's penalty double holding two and a half quick tricks?
The Adventures of Mrs. I. Fixum
They felt they were fixed because they expected an excellent score simply because I had made a huge blunder. It was chance, more or less, that I had just the right values to lure half the field into a poor slam. I might have dumbly passed a hand that fewer ...
The Adventures of Mrs. I. Fixum
I once fixed a pair in an instant match point game by passing partner's 1NT opener (15-17) holding 15 HCP myself. I was so wrapped up in the question of 3NT or 6NT that when I finally decided to "go low" I put down pass instead of 3NT. LHO ...
Andrew Yeckel's bidding problem: K6 762 T73 JT763

Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: 53 A AKQ2 AKQ852

I would rather pass than bid 2 with this hand. Curiously no one bid 3 in either this poll, or my poll where East held this hand in second seat. But someone did bid 3 in the auction show here: which ...
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AQ92 KJT9853 98 ---
I played this same hand and polled it except that I mistakenly had North as dealer: In that poll, when asked to bid with this hand in second seat instead of third seat, nearly everyone opens 1.

Do you play a direct overcall of 4NT as natural in this situation?
Combatting slow play
I find it faster to play it out until the point at which the claim requires only a few words (e.g. "the board is good"), which helps nervous players like me who trip over their own tongue explaining a claim. I especially don't want to explain a claim ...
