Adam Wildavsky's bidding problem: 752 AJT9 Q4 KQJ9
When we are Vulnerable it is not advised to be too aggressive in part score battles, so passing is indicated. I wouldn’t mind doubling if we were not Vul.
Phil Clayton's bidding problem: JTxx A Jxxx ATxx
Just for the record, I would have opened and wouldn’t have been ashamed if I had to put my hand down as dummy.
Richard Pavlicek's bidding problem: A 875 Q7432 KJ75
I totally agree with the initial Pass but I rather have acted over 1 than now...
Ok. A stupid question on a Wednesday evening.

that's still an 8 card fit
Steve Bloom's bidding problem: 75 J72 J63 QT853
I would bid 4. (Hence my vote) If you want us to predict what a BBO robot would bid you should provide us with what the robot think the 3 bid shows (which you can get at the table before/after bidding 3)
Michael Kopera's bidding problem: A6532 A2 JT6 J74
Double with this follow up plan: If partner bids diamonds - take preference to Hearts If partner rebid Hearts - Raise If partner bids spades - Jump raise If partner bids 2NT - Raise to game (partner should not bid 2NT with sub minimum and questionable stopper)
Michael Kopera's bidding problem: T62 953 T AKQT73
If I had only one major stopped I would bid it. 3NT therefore deny a major suit stop since I wouldn’t have both stopped for a first seat favorable preempt...
