Bob Munson's bidding problem: K T987642 KQ KQ4
Yep I know the book says you need a good suit with honors but I could never forgive myself for not bidding the 7 suit.
Do YOU play any of the "Worst Conventions?"
why would I want to play 2 as a double negative when I play kokish over 2. Makes no sense to me.
Shailesh Gupta's bidding problem: --- xxxxx J AJTxxxx
2 and 3 clubs are not natural. If South reopens with double and north passes I have an easy 2 bid. If South passes, I wish my partner the best of luck, he will need it.
Rohit Gupta's lead problem: 543 J9653 76 KT3
I don't see a lead that is obvious. I choose a heart but club and spade seem reasonable also. Not sure I understand a diamond lead but sure those that picked it had one.
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: --- J932 Q97632 J65
To play in diamonds as the part score fight is important. I am going to assume partner's 3NT says he accept the invite if that is what it was and if not bid your minor.
What's My Range?
I am one that would bid 1NT with 7 points. In fact I keep my range the same 6-10-. The bid shows a spade stopper and denies 3 hearts.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: KQ9653 5 QJ73 AT
better to establish game force instead of a making a bid that can be passed. Now what? Why does 3 have to be forcing in this sequence. Maybe its just a run out with 6 spades and no hearts.
Prealert? Nothing? Something else?
they did that when asked. Are you saying that in addition to marking it on the card they should pre-alert it. If so they should pre-alert just about every agreement they have and we will never play bridge.
Andrzej Matuszewski's lead problem: K62 KJ4 8643 AQJ
Its matchpoints so object isn't to beat the contract, just not to give up overtricks that others don't give up
Mert Özdemir's bidding problem: AQ AJxx Axxxx JT
I think my biggest shock is that so far its unanimous.
