Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
David Parsons's bidding problem: K6 KJ8652 Q4 J85
Yep. It's all a question of how much we mess up the opponents and partner. In second seat, I think a jump overcall is icky with this much outside values. That might cause us to miss game. But in third and fourth seat, why not?
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: T765 AJT95 Q2 87
Did you notice that 1NT = 12-14?

I think 3/double is a similar matter of style as 1/pass.
Leonard Hall's bidding problem: J AJ5 AKJ85 T753

Very sad. I enjoyed his Swedish and English bridge writing a lot. His passing is a great loss for the bridge community.
Is pass forcing?
Perhaps we bid 4 to make a fair amount of the time, but we didn't necessarily bid it on high card power to ensure 5 goes down if it is bid. If you want to set up a forcing pass, you need to show your high card ...
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: KT876 KT94 K AQ6
Interestingly, the club holding suggests that 2 is fairly safe, since the opponents are unlikely to raise the bidding too much. However, I still think double is a little better. Since 1 denies a balanced hand, the only case where 2 finds a major fit and double ...
