Eric Sieg's bidding problem: AT A4 AT8 QT9542
To Eric, what is 2-Pass-2-Pass-2NT? If that sequence shows this hand, do that sequence. If that sequence does not show that hand, my vote is 1NT.
USA1 Round of 16, Day 2
David, I agree. For those fortunate enough to watch the trials today, it was a blast.
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: A4 5432 AQ65 752

GNT Winners
Does anybody know who was the youngest player and or pair to ever win the GNT championship flight? What the Grossacks did as long with their teammates(Doug Doub and Franklin Merblum) was pretty cool and I give kudos to their performance.
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: AT6 J93 KT2 AT97
I concur with Jay...I abstained from the problem because using the methods of a negative double promising 4 and 1 call promises 5 has a big hole. This hand represents that hole because one cannot pass, cannot bid a heavy 1NT or an invitational 2NT because of J9x ...
