@Mike: "I don't think 3♠ promises 6. What is responder supposed to do with 5=1=3=4 with ♣xxxx?" 3 shows either 6-card suit or chunky 5-card suit (playable opposite Hx). Responder rebids 3 with hands that can't do anything else.
Mike Cassel's bidding problem: JT653 9 A2 KQ732
"You are asked to substitute for a player who had a stroke after noticing that he passed with this hand."
Julia Palmer's bidding problem: A93 --- T86 KT96542
After opponents make some two-suited overcall I prefer to play fit jumps in suits not shown (like either minor here) and splinters in suits shown. I could bid 4 here but I don't think my hand is good enough. So I bid 3 since I think the ...
Eric Leong's bidding problem: J62 AQ6 J AJT762
The 1NT overcall could have been based on good diamonds with stopper(s) in clubs and perhaps hearts but probably not spades given the auction.
Mike Cassel's bidding problem: K Q973 8654 AKT6
I agree that it shows minors with longer clubs (no 1 overcall) but would go further and say it shows a very good hand (s/he came into a live auction). Never mind that my hand is inconsistent with this.
Yigit Ozcelep's bidding problem: Kxx AQJx x Qxxxx
I think that a raise to 2 should have either 4-card support or a non-minimum opener. I don't have the former and I don't think I have the latter.
Steve Myerson's bidding problem: J9432 QJ A98765 ---
I don't think that the primary purpose of overcalls is lead-direction. If I had a way to show both suits at once I might use it but the OP says I don't. I therefore attempt to consume as much bidding space I as can afford. That leaves me ...
Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: KQ2 A KT82 AKQ85
See [url=https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bidding-problem-2-0ubzyyq46m/]Robert Thorstad's problem[/url] for the same hand at Matchpoints.
Steve Myerson's bidding problem: J9432 QJ A98765 ---
I would normally overcall 1 but I bid 1 here because partner is a passed hand.
Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: KT83 8 T4 KJT984
What are my methods over 1NT overcall?
