When asked by the director of 2003 NABC+ Fast Pairs if I am sure that I deserve a seed and I said probably since we won the event last year.

Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: AT864 A4 9 97652
Doesn't 2 show this hand (♠, 2 and an unbalanced hand)? Opener should be able to choose whether or is a better contract. At matchpoints, 2 or 2 may be better than 3 even if we have a big fit. (140>130 for ex).
Mark Chen's bidding problem: K52 AQ4 A953 K53
Partner had a near automatic 2 call 2nd time.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: JT72 J863 AQJ6 5
I thought that it was right to compete with this hand on average. In pass out seat, you tend to balance with any reasonable distributional excuse. Holding 44 in the majors, a singleton, and a decent passed hand led me to bid. The bidding went: (P)-P-(1nt)-P-(P ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: T4 985432 4 T632
I balanced 2 on the hand (even though it is 0 HCP; we are favorable and if partner decides to double a future contract, they should not expect much from my hand in the way of defense). The auction went: P-(1)-1-(P)-P-(2 ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: KT42 2 75 AQ9872
Partner made a good tactical/blocking bid of 3 with this hand. The auction went: (P)-P-(1nt)-3-(3)-P-(3nt)-All Pass. 3nt went down 2 for +200 and a fine score for E/W. North took a gamble over 3 when they bid ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: A6 987 AK2 A7642
I doubled 3 with this hand, and we set 3 dbled 1 trick for +100 and just above average. E/W hands do not make any game, and double dummy the most that we make is 3. West held: QJxxx Kx QJx K98 ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: K973 KT432 53 92
I bid 4 and played it there, and went down 1 for -50 and 7.5 out of 19 matchpoints. Partner held: AJx AQJx Jx QJ10x North held: x x AK10xxxx Axxx N/S go down 1 in 4, but ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: 94 KQ64 Q63 AKQ8
Partner doubled 2 with this hand (naturalish/lead direct). This tends to show 5 or 6 , but the AKQx is such a good holding that I liked the double. The auction went: (P)-1nt-(P)-P-(2)-dbl-(2)-3-All Pass. I scored +110 in ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: --- AKQ6543 3 AJ762
Partner passed with this hand and the auction went: P-(1)-4-(4)-P-(P)-5-(P)-P-(dbl)-P-(5)-dbl-(P)-P-(5)-dbl-All Pass. I held: J976 J7 A954 Q84 North held: Q52 1092 ...
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: 92 AQJ87 A542 74
I did not like bidding 2 on minimal overcall values at unfavorable vulnerability. However, the suit was just so good that I decided to overcall 2. The auction continued: (1)-2-(4)-5-(5)-P-(P)-6-(P)-P-(dbl)-All ...
