Barry Plotkin's bidding problem: --- AK82 AKQ8 KQT74
I play 3H as both minors which, seems to me, to be a lot more common than the asking for a stopper hand.
David Parsons's bidding problem: QJ4 T43 T2 AQ832
The Moysian may play well but the 3-3 fit doesn't look promising so I'll just bid what I got with 4C. I may get an opportunity to bid 4S and partner won't take me for a 4 card suit this way.
Yosep Hutasoit's bidding problem: A 7432 AKQT AJ53
Jumping a level with a modest hand and a singleton in partner's suit on the offchance that we find a fit seems pretty risky vul at MPs. I'd rather bid NT with 1444 or 1453 than make a highly speculative bid. Jumping to 2H with a 5431 over ...
Tim Goodwin's lead problem: QT94 974 AJ7 Q87
It sounds like dummy has 5 hearts and I would like to make a neutral lead as the cards don't seem to be sitting well for declarer. I'll try a club though a low spade is tempting.
Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: T87 QJT85 A73 T7
Partner does not have a 4 card heart suit.
Chris Derrick's bidding problem: J75 AKQ52 T6 654
With a partner or system that doesn't raise with 3 card support I would bid 2H.
Floyd McWilliams's bidding problem: KT642 QT9 8732 5
Partner has a wide range of distributions for 3D opposite a passed hand. As per Roland the opps likely have clubs but are often reluctant to bid them. I'll let them try to figure it out.
Steve Moese's bidding problem: 986 Q654 T86 K87
We are playing MP and I don't mind -100 holding these cards. If partner is 3532 Qxx AKJxx Qxx xx we might be in trouble but MP is about pressure and not letting the opps evaluate their hands at a low level.
John Cunningham's bidding problem: J Q42 A94 AKQJT3
Kxx KTxxxx xxx x is not a hand I would open 2H or bid 2H in the above auction.
John Cunningham's bidding problem: J Q42 A94 AKQJT3
Too bad partner has 5 or 6 hearts and 3N goes down when 4H is excellent.
