Paul D East's bidding problem: T A7632 AJ85 KQ7
Nothing cute, perhaps something like QXXX XX AJTXXXX makes sense with club length and lead direction along with 4+hearts. No constructive meaning required.
An exhortation. - Just open the %$^&^% bidding!!!
When the administrators barred "forcing passes" my friend tried switching to "strong passes" in the 15-17 range, creating another interesting system which seemed legal, but the local directors disallowed it anyway...shame.
An exhortation. - Just open the %$^&^% bidding!!!
The expression was "Colors" are for children.
Steve Stewart's bidding problem: QJ87643 AK2 6 KT
I like 3 to show I would like to bid again. Defending 3 has no appeal.
Does Meckwell ever sleep on the couch?
Seems like when agreeing that "last train" 4 is specifically a spade control, the diamond control cannot be conveniently shown, while agreeing that 4 shows "continued slam interest" handles holding either pointed suit control. Defining 4 as a spade control is better than as a diamond control ...

Just because the asking bids are bright and shiny does not mean they are not normally the best continuation. Opposite 12+ hcp, agree spades and commence cuebidding. Opposite 8-11 balanced, we also normally find ourselves well-positioned.
David Caprera's bidding problem: x QTxxxx AJxx AQ
Pass. It's a distortion to double. EDIT: Did this hand pass, knowing Rodwell would pass?
Does Meckwell ever sleep on the couch?
Fixed by the big club constructive sequences where the strong hand asks the responder for description, preventing the strong hand from describing his 5-card 's, preventing the companion hand from showing the Q with the RKC response, and preventing another night sleeping in the bed...
Gabriel Fractman's bidding problem: Qxxx Q9xx --- KT9xx
3 defined as "less than a 4-card limit raise, but more than a preempt". If this is not allowed, 3 is not enough, so 4...needing yet another lesson on matchpoint strategy.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: J9752 AKQ863 2 3
Missed this problem from last Christmas, but agree with the style to "reverse" with 5-6 hands without showing extra hcp, and would consider any action except 2 over 2 to deny this distribution.
