Matteo Montanari's bidding problem: T873 Q963 72 AQ8
I could not vote in your poll, since one cannot contemplate a response until it is known how high you play a negative double.
Steve Ramos's bidding problem: Q2 A8 AJ76 AQ832
I could not vote in your poll. If you had "a good partner", how could you fail to have any discussion as to how to proceed after a reverse? This is a primary point when going over systems with a person with whom you have not played.
David Parsons's bidding problem: KJ8763 4 J64 T92
I agree with Chuck, that an initial 2 spade bid, particularly with short hearts, is best. However, I could not vote in your poll, since I would have taken pains over 2c to "get out" of this auction by whatever means your system permits (i.e., probably 2d)
Art Korth's bidding problem: J92 QJ8654 --- JT32
I did not vote in the poll, as I also would have doubled the 2h transfer bid.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: AQ764 T987643 --- A
I agree with your partner -- partner can never picture a 7-5 hand if you don't. (PS - heart suit is so bad that it is not a hand to bid twice, showing both majors)
Winston Chang's bidding problem: QJx Axxxxx xx xx
I don't understand why with a 14+ hand, partner would not upgrade to a strong NT. I abstained, because logically, a good 14 should NOT open a weak NT, or you lose the advantage of the bid and system.
Polling Strength of 1m - 3N
I agree, Barry, but an added caveat -- the 3nt'er should NEVER have two aces, and mostly quacks.
Survey - Big Ideas
I have also replied to the new CEO. I forwarded a copy of my comments to Richard Popper. I was pleasantly surprised that my comments were thoroughly read, and I received a response directly from Bahar. I agree with Steve that upgrading technology should be the highest priority -- we are ...
Kenneth Wik's lead problem: QJT987 xx KJTx A
I don't pretend to understand your system, but if your bottom range is 10 hcp, this 5.5 loser hand is WAY TOO GOOD for that call.
David Hankins's bidding problem: xxx Axxxxx A AQx
David: This poll cannot be answered objectively, unless we know how high you agree to play negative doubles. I therefore abstained.
