Avon Wilsmore's bidding problem: 9xxx KQJ Axxx QJ
Partner would obviously leap to 5 any time it made---NOT.
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: AKQxxx Qxx --- Txxx
Double! Love the idea this double invites 5...Not playing this "double inversion" myself would make this decision difficult, because my partner may have the diamond value/length to defend, while I need to express my unexpressed big offense. The "double inversion" agreement solves the problem.
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: AKQxxx Qxx --- Txxx
And implies 5+card length...2 showing 5card 's with 4+ of a minor (in my understanding)
Adam Parrish's bidding problem: JT8743 T2 T K932
Double. The auction has allowed me to express my very limited high card value, while showing a little something to raise hearts to game, and finally expressing doubt that the opponents can take 11 tricks. (My only concern is that last part.)
David Caprera's bidding problem: x KQJxx x AKQTxx
I am not betting against partner having two first round controls...One ace with the KQJ is unlikely for committing to the 5-level...5 would then be appropriate if I knew my partner would always bid 6 with the minors.
Mark Jones's bidding problem: AKT6 T42 A87 AJ3
I am not feeling lucky.
Steve Rogers's bidding problem: KJ54 Q92 AQT53 6
Yep. Under pressure, one needs a partner who cuts you a lot of slack for overbidding here. Bottom line is that you know passing out 4 rates to be bad for your side.
David Stevenson's bidding problem: KQ32 Q AQ875 975
Double. Minus 140 is a bad score anyway on our 24+ hcp, while attempting ten tricks in diamonds is no guarantee of going plus, and caters only to the small target that they make 3 with 4 scoring well. If 3 is going down one, I don ...
Mark Jones's bidding problem: A65 876 K742 876
4. They may bid 4, and partner may want to bid on in the correct suit.
Jack Spear's bidding problem: JT2 432 32 QJT32
Thanks for mentioning this. It is the same hand-type (lots of tricks) except more hcp. Bidding 5 on this hand is easy with that understanding of the double. {Or if partner's void is visualized}. This hand bid 2 (weaker of two ways to bid 2 ...
