Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: KQT9 QJT3 AQ KQ8
First 2 then 3 over a minimum response from partner. 4 over almost any other response.
Tim Watson's bidding problem: AQJ954 J5 --- KQ962
I'm bidding 3 with my very good two suits and only 4 losers.
Can this sequence exist?
KJ9 AKQ74 K73 Q3
Can this sequence exist?
Well I'm the person who posted the lead problem. My partner was on lead. If people want to see the actual hand that West held I can share it, and I agree that 3 was probably a superior action to the 3 bid taken at the table.
How do we bid those hands to the best game?
1 - 1 - 1N - 2 (artificial GF) - 2 - 3 - ? I don't see how anyone gets to 4 on a 4-2 fit, but this auction may keep N-S out of NT.
Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: K43 K95 T73 J963

Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: K43 K95 T73 J963
For the 5 bidders: Are you planning to bid 6 over 6? In fact, 6 turns out to be a good sac (-500) even against 5 (-620).
Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: 853 764 87 AQJ64
Pass looks right to me. 3 is down 1 and 3 is also down 1.
Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: AJT 954 J94 AT97
I thought at least *somebody* would double here. My partner chose pass as well, and +100 didn't score too well when we can make a likely +170 if they let us play. My hand was K4 AQ10763 73 652
