Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Pete Marvin's bidding problem: 8753 AJ86 A8 K75
I can't imagine anyone would even think.
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: AKJTx AK9x A AJx
With this hand 3 is already plenty (and obvious), there is no need for 4.
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: AKJTx AK9x A AJx
When you hold so many controls, you must realize what partner is looking at. Do not expect her to be enthusiastic, she won't be. I intend to ask for Q of trumps and if we have it make a grand slam try.
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: AK9643 --- KQ2 5432
I haven't even made 4 yet (though I do have a good feeling for this contract).
Steven Mcgrahan's bidding problem: KT2 KJ K852 AJ98
I don't think this is worth a downgrade, but it's not as if it's insane. The only bad thing is that KJ, but the suit is strong, the 10 is a good card... As for x, it is equivalent to a 1 bid, says nothing ...
What is this double?
For this comment, I had to "like" it cause there is no "love" it.
1NT on pass out position
I was just about to make the same comment. However I want to add that I play a different range at majors (11-14 for minors, 13-16 for majors).
Mike Ma's bidding problem: x QTxx KQ9xx Axx
Who has the best Diamonds from us all?
I think this is what Marion is asking about.
Maximal, (16)17+, most probably 18+ since it "must" be kinda balanced, and did not open 1NT.
Penalty or Takeout
Maximal, balanced(ish).
