Paul Hightower's bidding problem: K4 85 AKQ8764 87
'Too much to hope for' - the only way partner is not providing you with a trick is in an auction where the opponents go to bed with a BUNCH of tricks in non-diamonds. After all, once you score your one diamond and the K on defense, they must be taking ...
Kieran Dyke's bidding problem: KJ6 Q862 T82 A53
You have a slightly above average hand for your original pass, so my decision is between 4 and 3N. I opt for 3N.
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: A2 AJ5 963 AKJ74
Got to this late and bid 2 without reading the comments. 1) this is too strong for 1N 2) a heart Moysian may be your best spot To me the reverse into 2 is perfect for the hand, as 2N is an overstatement of value. While 2 ...
Frances Hinden's bidding problem: Q96 K3 986432 QJ
I'm not particularly optimistic about my chances in anything other than 3. 2 has the additional problem of providing a useful double to the opponents. I'll stick with my 3 bid.
Frances Hinden's bidding problem: Q96 K3 986432 QJ
I'm unclear as to what the follow-ups are to 2. Hence the 3 vote.
Kieran Dyke's bidding problem: QJ52 --- QJT9652 K3
While I understand the problems associated with a 1-1 start, I fail to see how we find a 44 spade fit otherwise. Unless you want to write off that possibility and stick to a diamond trump suit (assuming 2/1, bid 1N then), we must show the spade ...
Karel de Raeymaeker's bidding problem: AJTxx xxx x 98xx
They likely have a VUL 3N (or possibly 5D). A 3 bid will cram the auction and we should be able to hold for down 1. Only bidding 2 keeps the Western cue available.
Frances Hinden's bidding problem: 42 J53 A53 A9743
Description? "We've never had an action double after a 3-level major suit pre-empt before" is not a description - it's history. I stand by my expectation.
Frances Hinden's bidding problem: 42 J53 A53 A9743
Fair enough. Partner has to lead his/her other minor to pull this off. Lacking the K, you have no other choice than to bid up.
Frances Hinden's bidding problem: 42 J53 A53 A9743
This is a pure penalty double. Maximum defense. Expect A, a minor suit void and some trump. Add these two tricks to your expected take and leave it in if you can determine the minor void or bid up.
