John Newman's bidding problem: 9 J86 J9754 T964
What are 3 and 3NT from partner? Anyway, the very wide range of our 3 raise suggests that opener needs to differentiate between 1. "Checking on controls before driving to slam" and 2. "Checking on controls while inviting slam." Generally I prefer to play the cheapest step (here ...
Matthew Brown's bidding problem: AJ43 T3 A AKJT64
I would have doubled on the first round and I don't consider it close.
Elke Weber's bidding problem: J3 AJ95 QJT Q753
I think your approach is fine as a passed hand. How can you have a GF as a passed hand without a fit? It doesn't make sense.
Clear as MUD (USA2 vs Bulgaria SF Segment 3 board 15)

Bowling Along 1 - The Preamble
Heck, I'll get a tattoo of Pete's face on my chest if you guys win. And I'll get a tattoo of GeO's face on my chest if New Zealand win, too!
Spingold Deal
It's not guaranteed that East holds three diamonds. He could be 2722 for the 5 play.
Advice sought on ethical question
Thanks Andy. I'm not too surprised it was intended as showing a shortage. Whatever it means it is a very rare beast.
Advice sought on ethical question
I still don't see why overcaller would bid 3 instead of 3 or 3NT. I also don't think this hand is a possibility. Responder could not raise hearts or bid spades despite having a decent holding in the suit, and also holds a diamond shortage. We ...
