Would you open 1NT with a void?
Other, i missorted my hand.
Space: Beyond the Frontier
While Jx and Jxx offside are more likely than Jxxx or Jxxxx onside, declarer CAN succeed with 5-1 hearts a fair amount of the time when diamonds are 3-3 if can lose the 2nd diamond trick to West (though not here but declarer doesn't know that).
David Coles's bidding problem: AKQ5 K876 JT6 A6
If we are uncertain, we can expect partner to be as well. Given that responder might have bid 4 with that suit to limit/avoid possible confusion, i expect this to show hearts.
1Nt---(2M)---X as penalties
Other. I don't believe it's better, period, but play it because partner prefers it.
John Torrey's bidding problem: A9754 KQ976 AT7 ---
6 choice of grands holding K for me. I don’t object to splinter but why not show void in response. Could have missed easy grand . If not able to do so, then I would not splinter.
Bay Area High School Bridge Championship
Terrific subject and an even better write-up. Congrats to all participants.
Kevin O'Dea's bidding problem: AQT92 --- AKT9 AQJ9
X of 3 showed? 6 showing heart void and odd # of keycards would have been my choice a round earlier though we might well belong in a minor suit too late for that.
Wayne Perrin's bidding problem: x Kxx AKxxxx KQx
We should score well for reaching a grand (and making). I'm always bidding 7 but no harm in trying to find out if partner has K or Q (locating J is one of the many things beyond my abilities). I typically play than 4N/5m are to play ...
Carding Question
Partner would not pitch a spade from Qxxx or Qxx here IMO, i would be surprised that they have anything other than 653.
Corrections
Adjust to -200 for 1N XX ? Looks like a fluke to me (unless Opps had a wire)
