Kranyak, Wolpert, Dwyer, and Bathurst win 2013 USBC

Congratulations to the Auken Team
Congratulations! In addition to Dennis Bilde becoming the second youngest (Bobby Levin was younger in 1980) ever to win this prestigious event, Sabine also became the first female player to have won playing on a 4-person team in the last 68 years. The last time this happened was in 1945 ...
Omar Olgeirsson's bidding problem: Q75 Q9864 QT 952
I don't have a trap pass so partner shouldn't expect I have any HCP. Theoretically, HCP can be distributed as 21 HCP (pd) 16 (RHO), 0 (me), 3 (LHO). 2S has to be invitational to game. With my hand, pass is not an option.
Yordan Boychev's bidding problem: 8xxxx AQx JTxx x
4 will help partner find our fit in S or D whenever partner has a fit with us, promising at least 54 in S and D so that we can land on our feet in case partner doesn't have a fit. Without our help, that is, if we ...
Henry Bethe's bidding problem: AK954 KQ86 8 A92
Double caters to both majors nicely, but I don't know what to do if the bidding goes (3C) - X - (5C) - 5D - P - ? Or worse if 5D gets doubled.
Richard Lawson's bidding problem: AKQ --- AKxx AKTxxx
Statistically we have a game or even a slam if we find a great fit. LHO and partner have 5 HCP combined. If we pass, chances are we will be defending 1C, which is +700 even if we take all the tricks, not a great way to play a slam ...
Paul Meerschaert's bidding problem: J9xx AQ8xxx --- 9xx
3C seems too much of an underbid. 3H shows 6h, 3c, but not enough to double 1N. Not Sure why partner passed 2c with 3d.
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: x AKxx Kxx AKQTx
Others have provided reasons why they voted for 3C. I was just adding yet another consideration that could tip the balance even more towards 3C.
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: x AKxx Kxx AKQTx
Since partner is obligated to bid 2D with 65432 43 5432 32 (admittedly a bit extreme, but it happens), a second double forces him to bid 3D. Now what? You will end up being dummy with a 4-3 fit instead of a 5-2 fit in 3C. Since opener has shown ...
