David Boxley's bidding problem: 964 KQJ62 K86 A4
3 is a known 3-card suit based on the premise we would always have bid 3 last round with a 4-card suit.
Jim Perkins's bidding problem: 63 A975 Q9 AKQ85
Absent other agreement, pass or support double could be the strong NT or not. If 2NT were reasonably agreed to show ~6 good diamonds with a heart stop, this hand would fall into the category of "Pass, but could be a strong NT."
Alex Hydes's bidding problem: AQ5 AKQJ62 54 54
5 rates to fail, and there is not a good reason to assume that 5 is making. Double is a more likely winner than bidding or passing, but no guarantees...
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: Qxx Kx AQ9xxx Kx
This hand should be upgraded because of the playing strength of the long suit, and should be the right-sided declarer in most contracts. The other hand had very few tricks in comparison, and going minus several hundred in NT would not be surprising. I would open 2 before 1NT ...
Jim Perkins's bidding problem: 63 A975 Q9 AKQ85
Passing here with the strong NT is common, because 2N is not sound with most 14-16's. Many play support doubles here, but double may not be defined to show/deny the strong NT. (Doubling to simply show the strong NT is no panacea.) The "nebulous 1" Precision opening ...
David Caprera's bidding problem: AKJxx AKxxx x xx
Define 3 then 3/4 = slam try major/minor. Now it's not too tough.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: KQT9 QJT3 AQ KQ8
3 now, but 2NT last round much better = 19-21, leaving South as likely declarer, with North knowing the correct level. For other balanced point ranges, Baze recommended two-way 1NT in this positon = 12-14 or 15-16, 2 asks. (Then 2/2/2 =stayman response with 12-14 ...
Jack Spear's bidding problem: A A32 A432 QJ432
I should have mentioned that playing CRASH over 1: 1,1 natural X/1NT/2 = Two suits same Color/RAnk/SHape. At the table, partner held xxxx Qxxx - Axxxx which made 12 tricks in clubs on the expected layout (also 10 tricks in 's ...
Garbage Stayman or Invitational
Playing weak NT NV 1st and 2nd, garbage/crawling. Otherwise play invitational with strong NT, which is needed for accuracy in a constructive auction. With weak 4-5 hands, transferring to the major is often successful, and no game swing is involved.
Selena Pepić's bidding problem: K73 QT3 K6 AKQ73
1NT means our major suit contracts are right-sided.
