Yuan Shen's bidding problem: AKQT875 --- AKJ985 ---
Yehudit's 6 is right out of Kantar's RKCB book, asking for 3rd round control of a suit below our trump suit...
Richard Traxler's bidding problem: KQ Q765 Q53 AK32
Pass at matchpoints. Any agreement will have winning/losing cases--I play that partner simply bids hearts when he has four.
Timuçin (Timo) Erkoç's bidding problem: T953 97 963 AK83
Pass. I don't understand what 1 is supposed to describe to partner, who is a third-seat opener. I don't want a spade lead, I don't want to play in spades (unless partner has four--a support double would be unwelcome), I don't have a good hand ...
Steve Moese's bidding problem: KQ4 KT73 54 KT73
Playing the 1 bypass over 1 (not precision) 1-1-1-1 and 1-1-1-2 can be defined as invitational in NT without a stopper in the fourth suit. Similarly 1-1-1M-2M can be defined as a constructive 3-card raise.
Steve Moese's bidding problem: KQ4 KT73 54 KT73
2NT as a relay to 3 provides artificial continuations for responder to show shortness with 54/45 in the first-bid suits. (also right-sides the 3 signoff) while 2>2-2NT invites. This also has the "cool factor" compared to simply showing 4-card support for opener's minor.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: 9742 AKQT AKQT5 ---
4. At least this guarantees 4-card support compared to 2. Continuing with 5 over the expected signoff to show the void may be worth the risk here--partner will be unable to continue with many hands which have good play for slam.
Phyllis Yates's bidding problem: xx Axx x AQxxxxx
5. They have an 4-4 fit which they may uncover over a 3 bid. This doesn't look like a good hand for defense, so let's try to play it.
Thomas Berg's bidding problem: A52 84 AQJ4 J987
Ideally this would show 5+cards. Creates new difficulties if only 4-cards, especially if any 4-cards.
Pete Marvin's bidding problem: QJ6 64 KQ9742 T7
Pass now, but 2 last round seems normal.
Thomas Berg's bidding problem: A52 84 AQJ4 J987
Yes, 1 promises 2+, 1 promises 4+. So 2 promising 5+ here makes sense, but then double (or 1) is needed to deny 4+, also allowing 2 here to show 5+. (Can't have everything)
