David Neiman's bidding problem: 2 AQT76 J94 Q863
Seems like a fairly normal auction, where bidding space problems prevent better investigation, but 6 is not such a bad contract. I like optional responses to minorwood/redwood, where the cheapest response says, "Dislike my hand", then inquirer can continue asking or sign off. That might have resulted in ...
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: 864 Q4 AK4 J9765
2NT, transfer to 3, which is Lebensohl to show a stopper in diamonds when followed with 3NT. Why would we let the opponents exchange information about which major is held?
Bill Kilmer's bidding problem: KQ92 A6 2 AJT952
There has to be a forcing club raise available now. With 2-way NMF, bid 2 creating a game force, then raise clubs next.
Alan Frank's bidding problem: K632 Q5 A8642 AK
My old friend and frequent teammate had a variety of reasons for not opening 1NT. A frequent result for us was 1NT-3NT at our table, lose 10! He never changed his mind.
David Neiman's bidding problem: 2 AQT76 J94 Q863
4. To agree on opener's second suit when it is a minor, we are often at the 4-level with little bidding room remaining to determine the correct level. Over 4, there is still space for Redwood (One-over RKC for clubs/diamonds) before deciding. 1-2-2-2N-3 ...
Ted Ying's bidding problem: AQJ9754 K9 J853 ---
It seems you made the correct ruling, because passing 5, then doubling 5 was not logical, but might be suggested by partner's hesitation. Doubling 5, then doubling 5 would also not be logical, as pointed out by someone in your poll. It is a challenge ...
Spear Them!
Thanks for the comment. I am surprised that others do not use the framework 1M-2C-2D for descriptive sequences, but then it always seemed like there was little sharing of methods in this regard, so it may be happening behind-the-scenes. My friend Ed Davis recently shared with me a complex 25-page ...
Victor Aronov's bidding problem: AT432 AK32 AQ75 ---
Kind of a fitting ending--the hand which doesn't seem real (a favorite for 13 tricks) meets the distribution which doesn't seem real (only 12 tricks available).
Tracy Brines's bidding problem: A75 AJ62 AKQ A93
Bidding slam is trusting partner for having a suitable hand for removing 3NT.
John Curley's bidding problem: AQT543 AT7 AQ4 K
I like 3NT here to show 6 spades. Without that agreement, 3 has some flexibility that other choices don't.
