Dick Wilson's bidding problem: AJ73 984 Q65 K63
6C. Can't be misinterpreted and both minors have to come in.
Mike Spitulnik's bidding problem: KQJT985 A 74 KJ7
Clearly, 4S is wrong. What about this hand from Bridgebum.com ? Examples of hands that should not open 1H: S T H AKQT872 D A5 C Q52 You'd hate to open 1H and hear partner pass with, say, C KJx and nothing else. A 4H opening bid shows a ...
Mike Spitulnik's bidding problem: JT83 KJ6 AKQ83 J
In actual play, I bid 3H and partner passed, explaining that I showed a minimum opening hand.

1NT is forcing. You can show partner you are at the top of the range with your next bid.

4H shows slam interest, but can be passed
Mike Spitulnik's bidding problem: 83 J7 KQT85 T832
Partner (a diamond LM) suggested 2NT which is why I posted this hand. His distribution was 4,2,2,5 with 13 high card points. As Dick Wilson pointed out, we should be defending against Hearts. 4H makes with a diamond lead. Goes down with a spade or club lead.

3 spades didn't get doubled, so I left it in. It did not occur to me to bid 2NT to show both minors.
John Spitzer's bidding problem: --- xxx Kx QJTxxxxx
You chose 4 clubs, but hit 4H. Mechanical error?
