Frank Pancoe's bidding problem: x AQx KQJxx AQxx
The 5d bid was made after a hesitation of over one minute
Christina Syrakopoulou's bidding problem: A53 J96 72 JT984
I am puzzled about the 75% vote for pass. Its MP and we have at least 21 HCP and a decent 5 card suit. . How can we be content collecting 50 or 100 defending?
Robert Thorstad's bidding problem: 72 J4 AK7 AKJT95
Does 2h show 6? Even if it does, why not rebid the good clubs?
And Another One Bites the Dust
Sorry Clarence Thomas, but THIS was a high tech lynching. Yesterday morning, any blowhard with an internet connection felt the urge to see their words in print. If they had a chance to think before they wrote, they might have wondered why a 67 y/o person at the pinnacle ...
Phil Clayton's bidding problem: JTxxx x x AQJxxx
This hand is from the second day of the LM pairs. South had AKx Kxxx xxxx xx. The panel agrees North has a pass. Bidding would be especially egregious if there was a BIT by South.
Frank Pancoe's bidding problem: JTxxx Jxx K Axxx
No- 3nt would show xxxxx Axxxx xx x
Scott Stearns's bidding problem: AK 4 Q9876 T9762
Are weak jump shifts standard?
Chuck Messinger's bidding problem: A4 A652 AQJ83 K6
Prime 20 point hands warrent a stronger bid than ordinary 13 point hands. Otherwise many slams might be missed.
Steve Fama's bidding problem: KJ9874 Q9 732 KQ
I showed garbage by not cue bidding over 3s. Now partner is demanding I bid slam with club control.
Apportion blame
South gets 20% as he doesnt have an opening hand IMO but North has too much slam potential with 9+ card fit to go for low level nv penalty. .
