Marten La Haye's bidding problem: 543 72 JT93 QT96
Partner came in at the three level freely opposite a dead partner. If 4 pieces isn't enough for a raise he shouldn't do that.
Oldest age to become really good?
To attain native fluency in a language you must grow up with it; no amount of work will substitute for that. Likewise, with a musical instrument, twenty is far, far too late.

Great writers, composers, and painters just keep getting better and better.
David Goldfarb's bidding problem: AJ952 KT76 KQ6 4
I bid 5D because I really like diamonds. 4D, even if forcing (I think it is forcing) is a preference. The jump shows good trumps in context, which is what I have. This is as good a way to get to slam as is available. Anyone who thinks this is ...
If you bid 2C Stayman how will you continue after a 2D reply?
Tom O'Reilly-Pol's bidding problem: QT985 A42 85 QJ8
I made this overcall with some trepidation. I would never have considered it except against a Precision 1D opening. The nebulous 1D is a weak spot in Precision, and I believe in jamming it up to make up for the times I face their 1H and 1S openings, which are ...
Jonathan Goldberg's bidding problem: AK63 K64 K KT854
You are correct.
Well, David, I see you're getting the blame for this (I was David's partner, holding the North cards). As for me, I agree with Woolsey's analysis and don't assign blame to anybody. Particularly at matchpoints, an occasional disaster like this is just a board. If they ...
Yuan Shen's lead problem: K5 AT942 JT QJ97
The reason I don't lead a spade is that I'm afraid partner has his bid. Suppose his suit is A109xxx. Unless RHO is a nutcase there isn't room in the deck for partner to also have an outside entry. So, we need to set up tricks elsewhere ...
Filippos Karamanlis's bidding problem: AJ3 --- KQT9 A98542
But I do have a fit in spades. With a void and the short hand taking the force, if partner has strong spades a 4-3 fit could play very well. Double keeps this possibility alive.
