Kevin Bathurst's bidding problem: J982 A43 7 98642

Dan Zagorin's bidding problem: KQTxx AKxxx QJx ---
I don't know why you involved me, but the discussion would be short. Anyone who knows my style in these spots already knows what I think: bidding 7 is terrible. It's a completely blind guess, and guessing 7 is a huge loser.
