Bridge in Turkey...
I've seen four taxi drivers playing Bridge while they are waiting for clients.
Yuan Shen's lead problem: A92 KQ754 532 96
2! Alternatively 3, or even 5 :). I agree completly with Yuan Shen: Save a few exceptions (and it seems to me that this hand doesn't look like to be one of them) when you hold the balance of power, leading a trump decreases the opponents playing ...
SCHWARTZ wins the Spingold
May be both North's players "still see no justifications" for your comments about their biddings :) In my opinion they knew perfectly what they are doing- "What" and "Why"!
SCHWARTZ wins the Spingold

Gonzalo Goded's bidding problem: K842 Q853 Q4 KQ7
It seems to be a close decisión between pass and any other bid, in this situation (Mp and a 4th position double). If we won 3/4 , probably we score 300 or 500 in 2 X. Completly different would have been the situation in IMPs: First I would ...
Steve Weinstein's bidding problem: AKTxx Kxx AJx xx
Pass is for "chicken players" :); Double for open minds :) (partner can have 5 and singleton); finally 3 (Steve's statment):)usually promises a 6 card suit. By the way: A very instructive hand!
Frank Lin's bidding problem: AKJ85 AKJT6 85 J
4H was a missclick. I Saw 6H and 5S.
