Penalty or SOS
My double was hardly insane. Xxx,AQ,K1087, J1098. You would really not double 2D with that hand?
Steve Stewart's bidding problem: KJ9xx --- x QT9xxxx
I must admit as sick as it may sound, I would have given them 2 at my first chance to bid.
John Cunningham's bidding problem: A962 865 94 Q942
I bid 1. I hate raising on xxx and getting partner off to a lead into the opponents wheel house.
What is the "standard expert" treatment?
None. The way I meant the bid was in the middle.

I agree with you Michael that it really doesn't matter what you play as long as both people are on the same wavelength. My preference and what I play in any of my established partnerships is 5 is an asking bid. The purpose of the poll was to ...
Should this hand bid?
I would be at matchpoints because as one responder alluded to, you are getting an auction that is probably not be duplicated at any other table. I used a similar logic for if I get a Precision 2 opener on my right.
11 points, 5-6 in red suits
I do not know if this is common, but I play a "jump reverse" shows a 6-5 minimum. Had I opened 1 on this hand, I would have bid 4NT with this hand, converting 5 to 5. Partner should get the picture.
6 imps a board?
All carping aside. 6 a board is impressive. You need a lot of luck and some good skills. My best was 55 for 12.
Jeff Miller's bidding problem: A6 AT43 KQ6 7654
I like Ax of 's, so I bid 1 more.
ATB where did this go wrong?
The double is bizarre to say the least. It assures that the doubler's side will never play the right strain. Had partner bid 1NT, what was the doubler's plans? The pass is really shooting for a top or a bottom on a hand where the sitter has zero ...
