David Libchaber's bidding problem: KJ965 J A742 K75
It would be nice to not keep the other hands a top secret.
Jack Spear's bidding problem: KQJ2 AQ32 AKQJ 2
With two useful cards, why is responder going to cooperate when you might have splintered with a far weaker hand such as: S Kxxx H AKxx D AKxx C x?
Jack Spear's bidding problem: KQJ2 AQ32 AKQJ 2
By your own definition of your splinter you overbid yourself to a guess.
Jenish Shah's bidding problem: KQ2 A86 K7 QT742
There is almost zero chance of being in the money by passing two hearts. However, there is some chance two hearts might go down a trick. Two hearts doubled is going to be a top for about a 4% pick up. Further, if you get a good board on one ...
David Libchaber's bidding problem: KJ965 J A742 K75
You are sitting over the opener's spades and partner can overruff dummy when declarer tries to ruff spades on dummy. Also, partner has promised something in the minors. Just where is declarer's source of tricks? Finally, the opponents are vulnerable.
Avon Wilsmore's lead problem: 982 97652 J5 754
It is more likely a spade lead will yield two immediate tricks than a heart lead. Perhaps, dummy has something like: Kxx Ax Ax AKQJx Alternatively, a spade lead might be necessary to set up a spade trick before the hearts get established. Axx ...
Avon Wilsmore's lead problem: 985 3 74 KQT7542
West's lead to six diamonds suggests he has a distributional hand with five diamonds, shortness in clubs, and spades well stopped from the top. Something along the lines of: AKxx Qxx Qxxxx x opposite -- KJ10x AKJ10xx Axx The only chance of ...
Avon Wilsmore's lead problem: JT54 653 KJ93 32
Leading a diamond is assuming partner has a diamond honor. Consequently, if I am going to lead a diamond I might as well lead the king to possibly retain the lead and be able to exercise more options after I get a look at dummy.
Buddy Hanby's bidding problem: AJT865 AT76 7 T6
Calling one spade "normal" doesn't make your bid normal no matter how many times you repeat the word. Partner could have a perfectly misfitting normal opening bid opposite your "normal" hand and normally force the partnership into a crappy game you normally don't want to be in.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: KJ843 AT AJ94 72
I would bid 6 to give the opponents the last guess. Six spades might be cold or make on a good guess or a defensive misguess. Finally, the opponents might be stampeded into a losing sacrifice.
