Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
ATB - missed grand
5 is undiscussed but it has to be asking North to bid the grand with undisclosed values. Since he has only promised Axx of hearts, I believe the extra Q should be enough to go.
My ACBL NABC Online Individual Journey - Day 2
I'm surprised at the number of results that seem to be close to a zero but end up near or above average (bd 20 for example).
Fred King's bidding problem: A4 AQJ7 QJT865 6
I'm passing to give partner a chance to double 2 with the right hand. I think he is forced to take some action here.
Niko Roemer's bidding problem: KT Q7652 8 JT842
Looks like a pass at matchpoints but I have to bid 3 at IMPs. As Martin said, the heart spots just aren't strong enough.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: KJ82 AKQJT3 A7 Q
6NT might be reasonable over a 2 rebid, but over 3 North deserves 0 matchpoints.
Arijit Hazra's bidding problem: AKJT9x AKJ9x A x
I think I'm going to try 1 then 5. Partner should raise with decent help in spades.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: Q32 9643 J832 76
I have too many red cards and too few high cards to sit for a double. I bid 3
Plan the Play
I duck the spade, win the presumed trump return and draw another round. Then diamond toward hand. If I play on diamonds too soon I may run into a diamond ruff.
Disclosure of style of take-out doubles
I play minimum off-shape TO doubles and I too feel they should be alertable, but as per ACBL they are not.
Daniel Jackson's bidding problem: A753 94 5 KJT953
This is IMPs and it seems unlikely that we have a game. Also, 3 has a lot of pre-emptive value so I choose to suppress the spades and simply bid 3. At matchpoints I may try 2.
