Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AJ932 J932 A94 2
Of course that can happen; one quibble, last plus isn’t the only time 2 is the winner, smallest minus can be as well...

And when 2 is your best contract?
David Caprera's bidding problem: x Axxxx Axx xxxx
IMO, Splinter doubles by UPHs should be about bidding, not about the lead.
David Caprera's bidding problem: x Axxxx Axx xxxx
Good enough for a light splinter, but I don’t want to let the opponents double 3
Apply LoTT or not?
Another poker player?
Please settle a bet!
Tom: Whenever the opponents have an 8 card fit, is possible we have what I call the 5777 problem. That does not mean we can't compete and hope to find our 8 card fit.
Please settle a bet!
Chris: Who needs the J9? I've overcalled 1 on AKxx plenty of times..
Frances Hinden's bidding problem: 42 J53 A53 A9743
"Action double" is a little vague for my taste. We play double says, I'd like to bid 5, but if you were going to double 4 on your own, then you should sit. Guessing with this sort of hand is just that; a guess.
David Caprera's bidding problem: 86 A5 Q83 KQJ965
5 is the sort of bid that can help both sides. If I am next to act (partner of the 4 bidder), I can evaluate my minor suit holdings much more accurately. For example, with KJxxx in diamonds and a small singleton in clubs, I'd be thrilled ...
Two questions about the New ACBL Convention Chart
1. No. 2. Yes, that is in violation. If you open with a singleton diamond (below Q), the bid is artificial.
