Paul Marjoram's bidding problem: AKQJTxx xxx xx x
Notrump seems unlikely to work well; how will partner know to show stoppers? Slam is implausible with an opening hand to my right; any possible side suit finesses are likely to fail. I'll bid my hand from the rule of 2-3-4: 4.
Richard Lawson's bidding problem: J732 T752 AK3 52
Why not double first in that case? Does the reopening double emphasize spades over diamonds?
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: J985 J98 QJ7 A65
Indeed. At the table, that was almost exactly the hand of my partner (except with the Q instead of the king). You and Kieran's reasoning makes sense. I should reevaluate the diamond honors and bid game instead of passing.
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: 4 AKQ96 T543 QJ5
In that case we cannot agree hearts below the 4 level, and I prefer to let partner move to slam with a subminimum hand.
Abraham Fisher's bidding problem: T64 KJ98642 32 7
I would open 4 with that hand. I open 3 with this one. Big difference. I have no idea what you mean with partnership confidence. Preempts work.
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: AQ KQ83 83 AQT43
I am bidding 4 which should be interpreted as Last Train by partner. Not sure if it is clear enough though.
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: AQJ8642 QJ86 A K
This was indeed a club game. Agreed, it seems reasonable to bid for strength rather than distribution; at best we only need one high card from partner ( K) to make game.
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: AQJ8642 QJ86 A K
At the table, I bid 2 and, after the opponents competed in diamonds, I got to show my side heart suit at the three level.
For the Record
No, he had it Wrang.
Board 2 from the 02/08/2018 Common Game
The notrump bid is better for both showing a more specific point range, and the distribution of the points in the suits, I think.
