You are right Steve. Missed that part
Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: A75 AQ6 KQ765 AK

I don't play it as forcing
Nicholas France's bidding problem: JT876 Q Q843 AJ2
Gregory you should post that hand as a bidding problem. I would bid 2 with that hand but always nice to see what others would do.
How and when do you try for slam - or don't you?
