Defending on the Couch - Part Two
Surely the opponents' agreements over the 1 opening are relevant for the second deal—if a direct 2 overcall would have been natural, north might have done that with the hand you thought he held.
Charlie Chen's bidding problem: KJ7 A972 A9 J942
What do you mean by "this auction type"?
Play for the Blockage, or Duck?
Brian Zhang's bidding problem: A8 KJ983 KJ76 T4
If the same hand holds the long clubs, the heart ace and five spades, then you can run your diamonds (pitching a heart from dummy). With 7 cards left, the hand with long clubs must hold 3 spades and the heart ace, so can only keep 3 clubs. Then you ...
Forcing or non-forcing?
Michael S: I would be very surprised if Sarah thought the double of 2 was penalty. Indeed, I would have thought takeout was standard. Michael K: I agree that 3 should be forcing, but surely there are hands that didn't want to bid 2 or 3 ...

Victor Xu's bidding problem: QJ6 K AK76 KQ975
What would be your rationale for not opening the South hand?
Victor Xu's bidding problem: AT8643 T983 5 J7
Not clear to start with a transfer. Bidding stayman, planning to bid 2 over 2, will often work better, I think.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: AJ863 A43 76 QJ6
If you do bid 3 with 5 spades and 3 diamonds (in the auction 1 - 1; 2 - 3) do we often "lose" spades now? Does opener's 3 promise 3 card spades or can it be on some 2452 hand? And maybe relatedly, would ...
