Karen (Kate) McCallum's bidding problem: QT A953 KT97653 ---
No one has commented on the 3D call, which I thought questionable. Would you consider double instead? Suppose you're playing equal-level conversion doubles - from clubs to diamonds only. Does that make double more attractive?
Karen (Kate) McCallum's bidding problem: QT A953 KT97653 ---
That makes a lot of sense to me. Partner's failure to double suggests that 4H isn't going to be a good spot. So, 4H probably commits us to 5D. I'm not sure this hand warrants such optimism.
Karen (Kate) McCallum's bidding problem: QT A953 KT97653 ---
Partner didn't overcall 2NT... so maybe it's unlikely that he would want to play 3NT facing a hand like this. On the other hand he didn't make a takeout double, making 4H less likely as well. It's difficult, IMO. What about doubling on the first round ...
Hi Jenny. Looking forward to your participation. Will you be playing with Eva? I've made you a member so now both you and Ben can post on your own profile. :)

Is it really only a guess? Surely there is a percentage action?
Yes, of course. Do them at your convenience. If you need opponents let me know. Lots of folks looking to play these days.

Fixed! :)
So am I! Have you got that bug?! :)
Steve Weinstein's bidding problem: T8xx x K9xx KQxx
I wouldn't expect 2C to be Drury over 1S, although a fair number of USA players do have that agreement - it's certainly not normal. The discussion has convinced me that I should be playing it after the 1S overcall (or transfers as I play after a double). Silly ...
Eric Leong's bidding problem: Q753 K954 64 J73
Pass. I wouldn't have to make a decision if I'd bid 3S on the first round.
