Shaul Rashti's bidding problem: 9 KJ97654 Q87 43
If I couldn't bid on my last turn, what would make be bid now
Upside upside down
Trying hard to figure out how the J can be right unless I know partner doesn't have 5 or more hearts and even then what would I be showing
Trick One Signal (Full Hand)
I don't play quickly to the first trick. That is when you are suppose to think about the hand. There is nothing "unfair" about taking your time on the first trick especially if declarer plays unusually fast to the first trick. Now I really want to consider why declarer ...
Surely not another missed game with 10 trumps
I have a major problem with West's bidding. First I'd bid 1 over the double as the only suit he wants to double is spades. Second, even if I did redouble, I find it hard to justify West not bidding 3 here with 3 hearts. East ...

Avon Wilsmore's bidding problem: J4 J74 KJT962 T5
My worry here is this hand happenned a long time ago and the double may not mean the same thing then as it does now.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: JT3 A6 AK9 AQT63
To raise the 2 bid I don't need much besides a fit. I was talking about bidding a new suit or notrump.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: A JT8543 J98542 ---
I see 2 choices and 2 ways to look at the hand. I expect the vote to be close
Is this 3!d bid forcing?
I think the basic concept here is Lebensohl or Ingberman are off after the 1NT response. I think this is best as 1NT is a very limited range.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: JT3 A6 AK9 AQT63
Bidding 1NT here is just taking too much of a position and so is passing. 2 shows a good suit and will be fine if partner can't come up with 9 points to make a bid.
