David Hankins's bidding problem: Qx ATxxxxx xx xx
Lynn: I tentatively accept your apology - but, insofar as interpersonal interactions go - you've got a lot of work ahead of you. An "apology" which includes an insult such as "because you are lazy" is... well, not much of an apology. Nonetheless I take your point. May I suggest a ...

Jeff Ford's bidding problem: J42 95 Q AK97432
Agreed. And with AK of clubs, I offer defense if pard doubles some subsequent auction on their part - holding AK of clubs, I'm certainly going to pass.
David Hankins's bidding problem: Qx ATxxxxx xx xx
Very well - but why bitch about the posed problem? Fill in the spots to your liking - and then suggest an action based on the supplied spots. Instead, you've insulted me and supplied zero value to the discussion. Good job. ======= To carry the above commentary on - I presume this isn ...
David Hankins's bidding problem: xx Axxxx Kx Kxxx
Strange.... The results above suggest that pass is best with this hand, moreso than opening with the hand linked here: http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bidding-problem-2-cq6qs0wc2t/ The hand posited in this problem is a 10hcp, 7-loser hand, with 2 quick tricks. While the hand posited in the alternative hand, is ...
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: J42 95 Q AK97432
My partner bid 2C because he thought that his hand was too good for 3C - I think I agree with his thinking. On the night, my RHO made a really risky negative double. I held 11 or so HCP, with a nice 5-card heart suit headed by the AKJ so ...
David Hankins's lead problem: KJT QJ8 Q8 QJ872
Although 4th best club seems to be most popular, at matchpoints, I think that, at matchpoints, your primary aim is to not give away tricks - defeating the contract is secondary. On the auction, assuming that the opponents have around 26-or-so HCP for their 3NT contract, partner cannot have much at ...
David Hankins's bidding problem: Qx ATxxxxx xx xx
This was my hand - at the table, they actually opened an intermediate 12-15 NT. Of course I passed, but, had they opened a strong NT, I'd have come in with 2H. I changed the auction to show a strong 1NT opener as there was a diverse set of opinions ...
David Hankins's bidding problem: xx Axxxx Kx Kxxx
Yup - just trying to gauge whether or not this qualifies as an opener among good 2/1 players. Assuming you've agreed to open light, I like opening with this hand. Personally, I'm more conservative, and would pass holding this hand. By way of contrast is this: http://bridgewinners ...
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: T Q932 Q742 9853
Pard took the plunge and bid 3C (Stayman). After my 3D response, he bid 3NT - down 1 on mis-defense. I think I like pard's bid - if declarer holds 4H you want to be in game for sure, and on some layouts, 3NT makes when pard doesn't hold 4H ...
