Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: AKQJ QJ 984 K982
1NT. And stop worrying.
Bob Okker's bidding problem: KT AQ KT97 KJ652
In this day and age, 1NT is unanimous.
David Hankins's bidding problem: 9 AKQ754 652 KJ6
If he has good diamonds, what more do I need to know about to attempt 4H?
Liam Milne's bidding problem: J AT3 6532 J7643
4D isn't "stronger than 5D". It's different. 5D should carry a very specific message. For me that would be good trumps, like KQxxx and out. 4D leaves room for control bidding and also might permit 4S as a contract if that's partner's next bid.
What is your choice?
An invitation? What’s that?
Richard Granville's bidding problem: J64 4 AJ42 Q7432
500 beats 110.
What is your choice?
Opposite a 12-14 balanced hand, I'd be charmed to drive to game.
When should you use Stayman?
I know at least one very good player who has said this. However, I think it's silly to use Stayman when 1NT is almost certainly a sensible contract and Stayman offers no such security. Balanced hands with enough strength to make 1NT don't seem to justify the risk ...
Richard Granville's bidding problem: J64 4 AJ42 Q7432
3514 is no more likely than 4513. I'd say you're comfortably less than 50% to be facing a four card club suit. Your partner might decline to double because of an inadequate spade holding (like 2524) but probably would double with an inadequate club holding (like 4522).
Louis Glasthal's bidding problem: KQJ5 AJ7532 4 QT
A "cheap sacrifice" would require that they make and we're exactly one off. That's a very specific parlay.
