Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Petter Bengtsson's bidding problem: 8653 Q6 T872 K65
The weird thing is the silent opponents who also have a double fit and everything in their suits.
Five No Trump Bids
5NT GSF is a remnant from a pre keycard asking era. Once you start using (E)RKCB, pick a slam becomes far more useful as the standard meaning for a jump to 5NT. There are still some auctions where you need it (based on limited space available) but they should ...
Bidding a Singleton Four Times
Even playing specific king responses, you could have bid 6. This should show K as it's generally not a good idea to splinter with a singleton king. Still better is, of course, if North had a 5 bid available to confirm all keycards, over which a 5NT ...
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: 9 AKJT QT853 T94
If partner understands the frequency of hands in bridge, he will likely not agree to play this double as penalty unless East is a known mental patient. His arguments: - Hands like the one above are pretty common. Since West doesn't promise more than a yarborough, East's bidding only ...
Finn Kolesnik's bidding problem: ATx AKQ Txx KQT9
Why would a strong club improve prospects? In standard, partner at least knows in this sequence that opener's dbl is usually a strong unbalanced hand with 5+. In precision, opener can have any 5 card suit for his dbl and I guess even more balanced ranges.
Reverse Finesse
Glad that West still led a diamond after East forgot to double 3, else we didn't get to see this transfer squeeze.
1NT - 3M
Jumping around is not my idea of a good slam sequence. A cuebid or 4NT does not specify a minor suit. All these options kill a keycard ask.
1NT - 3M
Not knowing the longer minor is usually not a problem. Opener only bids 4m with 4+m and reluctance for 3NT. I never heard of this being non-forcing. Sounds like that puts a lot of guessing work towards slam when opener has a nice fitting hand.
Pete Marvin's bidding problem: 762 K7 AKQT5 KQ9
Easy pass. Partner shouldn't have 3 keycards and the queen of trumps
ATB
But can East be certain that West does not have Axx KQx AKQJxx x?
