Paul Hightower's bidding problem: AKJT6 T A943 QJ7
True - my mistake. Did not look at positioning before making the comment. Direct overcall is weak. Doesn't change my vote for 1.
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: AKJT6 T A943 QJ7
Double misleads the spade suit length and most NA pairs use a 2 overcall as weak.
Paul Marjoram's bidding problem: AKQJTxx xxx xx x
Master suit, bide your time with 1. Partner may find some diamond stoppers along the way. 4 is a crap shoot and 3 virtually eliminates 3N as a destination.
Snowball in Hell
Participated in an 11HCP small slam off 3 key cards. The A and K of trump split 1-1. Unbeatable...
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: 87 T63 K8 QT7652
3 should show 3cards, since with 4cards I would be inclined to raise 2 directly after the 3 bid. Partner is well placed to make further decisions.
4-level Cue-bid of Opponent's Suit

Kieran Dyke's bidding problem: QJ52 --- QJT9652 K3
Playing 4card majors and canapé, I can't tell you how often we've gotten a top board playing in a 44 major fit when the opponents are not aware of the hidden 'long minor' that ultimately sets up. Edited to add a recent example hand... [url]http://www.bridgebase ...
You Never Know What Might Happen
With standard count, I've always advocated low with odd, and with even, a high enough card to not look low. I fail to see with J732, what leading the 3 does for partner. And with 6 cards, it is even more important to lead an obviously NOT low card.
4-level Cue-bid of Opponent's Suit
This essentially is the crux of my question: 1) general slam try in clubs 2) slam try clubs, cue in diamonds Which one does the majority of posters believe is the more common?
