Dave Robinson's bidding problem: 984 AJT74 JT83 Q
"Could it be your hand after all?": I think it's more likely that they bid 7NT (kinda a fashion these days) than we ever play anything not doubled. I'll refrain from going deeper in what one should and shouldn't do if they actually bit it (the NT ...
Guess?
I might play the K if I had it.
What is this signal?
Why would (should) I want to select a second answer?
Merijn Groenenboom's bidding problem: 84 AJ965 AJ97 T7
Absurd certainly not. Unlucky certainly yes. Will be even more unlucky when you bid 2 and partner now 2NT.
Ray Fink's bidding problem: Q85 JT2 AK72 643
Because 2 was gf for me.
Jana Vernon's bidding problem: A4 AQ98742 T T73
Hard to believe that 4x would be better than 4. Alas, they have removed my "thank you" cards from the bidding box.
Elianna Meyerson's bidding problem: AKJ9864 --- --- AQJ862
I would have bid 6 instead of 3. But, if you are going to show 4 of them, I wonder why bid them at all.
Ed Judy's bidding problem: --- --- AKJ8632 Q76543
This depends on agreements, I would take it as natural and sign off without any, but I have no idea if I'd be in a majority in that.
Peter Randall's bidding problem: K52 A974 QJ4 KQ5
If you have the agreement that owing 15 is forcing to slam, then bidding at all with this hand seams fine. I don't have it.
ATB - bad slam
As a rule, I always credit the tomatoes to the one that started it. Now, if the mistake was something like a LA (maybe close to it), I would gladly look at the rest of the auction, but this here 2NT hit me too hard.
