Martin Gordon's bidding problem: Q53 KQJ753 Q 642
So now I will tell you what happened. I foolishly bid 5S and they foolishly forgot to double. They got 4 aces and four ruffs (the opening lead of the AD dropped pard's stiff king and clubs and hearts Both had singletons). This -600 was worth 6 out of ...
Martin Gordon's bidding problem: Q53 KQJ753 Q 642
Thank you. I did not think of that bid. I would normally expect a 5 card suit and 4 card support for a fit showing jump shift. I see that a number of people agree with you. Any comments on the shape?

Jack Spear's bidding problem: Axx AJTxxx Kx xx

John Adams's bidding problem: Kxx AQxx Axxx xx
The way we play it, this is the only distribution that does not promise five diamonds for this bid.
Dorn Bishop's bidding problem: AT82 QT86 95 A76
i bid 1NT forcing to see if partner has a 4 card heart suit.
Semiforcing 1NT
Adam, this is a great post, since I have begun to wonder about the merit of SF 1NT versus F 1NT. One question: the style I currently play does not differentiate between 3 and 4+ card raises unless I have a singleton (I am not a believer in the Law ...
