Alan Frank's bidding problem: K632 Q5 A8642 AK
The auction goes... 1 1 1 1N Your call. No thanks. 1N to start. Maybe this will right side the major suit honors.
A curiosity
Opened and raised though. Note I once played a 3-2 on that auction. Opps should have led a trump. 3 aces and 5 trumps.
Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: K3 KQ42 QT973 65
Yes. Woolsey has made Cappeletti obsolete.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: KQxx Jx Axx KJ8x
P promises +1000, where is the problem? Some seem not to trust their partners.
What is your line?
Right. If the KO the SA they can give you a guess.
A curiosity
1 on 4432... might even get raised on 3 if partner is 3334 with no stopper and some points.
Overcalling 1NT with a singleton
Artificial showing a 4+ card suit somewhere?
To Show or Not To Show?
You have to be able to out-yell Lynn. Even Gard only get's half a vote in that family.
To finesse or drop
The King. Imagine a Robot that deals 1000 random hands consistent with the bidding, and what the Robot has seen. In many of those 1000 hands partner will Hold the Ace. Even AJ tight. The Robot probably does not ask itself "what would partner have led from... therefore AJ tight ...
To Show or Not To Show?
Note: We still have them turned on as a handful of Alpha players want the scores and are louder than the other half that does not want them.
