Leo Lasota's bidding problem: 75 AJ5 965 AQ976
Exactly my point that if we bid 3 initially, opener does not get to "show their hand" below 3, and this takes up a lot of room. With some of my partners (just not the one that this hand came up with), I play that over the auction ...
Save Bundy's Sanity
Peg, I understand that it is very frustrating when this happens against you. When someone does something like that, you can tell yourself that the opponent(s) know that they need an unfair advantage to have any chance against you.
In the Well: Mikael and Ola Rimstedt
It is great that you both are physically active and work out a lot. How much of an advantage (if any) do you believe this gives you when you compete in high level bridge competitions?
Competing after Partner's Strong NT and LHO's Balance
How about East should have doubled 2 and West would have bid 3???
Rui Marques's bidding problem: 964 J3 Q964 JT53
What was 2 (preemptive)? If 3 directly would have been preemptive, I would have made that call on the 1st round of bidding.
Marion Gebhardt's bidding problem: A743 K62 3 76542
What in the world was 4 from partner?
Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: A4 AJ64 AQ864 92

Yoko Glubok Sobel's bidding problem: 3 T8642 J875 QJ2
Since the opener showed a GF balanced hand when they rebid 2nt, why would you play 4 as showing a max? 4 there should be a minimum with a fit.
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: Q7 KT6 8542 T762
This hand was not worth bidding the 1st time, especially at all vul. If we have a vul game in the cards, partner must have a huge hand and we can find it later after we pass initially.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: J7 J982 JT852 K5
"better choice": not necessarily This is MPs and 1nt had a lot going for it: 1) if we end up declaring some # of nt, we score well if we manage to take as many tricks in nt than in 2) this gives partner a pretty good understanding by showing ...
