John Newman's bidding problem: 9 J86 J9754 T964
Why 4 Kieran? Do you think it should be Last Train, or is just because you'd like to make a noise below 4?
Liam Milne's bidding problem: AKT843 J654 872 ---
@Bob, I held this hand yesterday, and partner opened 1S: AT93 AJ AK965 76 I was about to bid 2NT, but then I thought about how I might reach a good slam if there was one, and decided to respond 2D (5+, GF). It worked this time - LHO interjected with ...

I like 2NT for the same reason (if partner shows a diamond shortage you're in the money).

One friend of mine solves some of these problems by playing this as canape with diamonds: 2C-2D; 3M and 3D here as Stayman: 2C-2D; 3C-3D

Colin Baker's bidding problem: 52 AKQ AKQ863 Q5
Hi Gary, A 4 cue sets you up for Keycard then grand slam opposite as little as: A AKJxxx
A bad start
Either reaction is totally acceptable, but this problem has made me realise the key is to be consistent in similar scenarios - forgiving or simply call the TD. I don't think you or your partner would willingly capitalise if you believe you may be partially responsible for the lapse in ...
A bad start
Having possibly distracted my opponent at their turn to bid, capitalising feels yucky. If a RHO asked, I'd like to think I'd always let them change their obvious mis-bid. But perhaps the unfair truth is that mistakes are selectively forgiven, depending on whether an opponent often capitalises on ...
600k boards from Vugraph: lies, damned lies, and statistics
Ideally the first and second rounds of those events too - when people aren't going ballistic.
