about me

Sam Marks's bidding problem: KQ3 J432 QT9 Q86
Is this hand a drury? Really?
Eric Dong's bidding problem: 863 KT742 QJ42 A
I like to and usually play Jacoby by a passed hand that guarantees among others a singleton. Nevertheless, I don't much like to splinter here, because though it does not promise, it might imply some value/s in and deny in , which might in turn make partner ...

America, is the only continent I've never been to. So, no, I was talking universally.
Eric Dong's bidding problem: 863 KT742 QJ42 A
Richard I am also assuming drury, because it is very probably played by just about everyone (I'll refrain from mentioning what % of players would benefit from playing it at ALL seat openings). However I want to say that people posting problems should be more careful with these things, and ...
Winston Chang's bidding problem: K7 AKJ Q84 AKJ94
What is your range for 2NT opening? Even if you consider the hand good because of the suit, it has only 7 controls, while a good 2NT has 8. If you did not overbid at your first turn, you might not need to ask what to do at your ...
Charley Seelbach's bidding problem: KQxxx AKxxxxx --- x
This hand I cannot accurately bid even without this 4NT bid. And honestly I don't care. For one thing I know, is that most probably I'll never have it. Why care how to bid with a hand you are going to have a max of one times in ...
Bob Okker's bidding problem: AKQ432 AQ 43 AK4
4 is a double jump, so not strong for me (I am not sacrificing "obviously"). 3 is strong but not forcing, a hand same but without either the K or the A of would be just about right.
Gary Donner's bidding problem: AK96 QJT6 97 QT5
As smoints, this should be at 3 (though from a smoint of view it must be max already). However, this is a bit too good, isn't it? This robust trick taking suit, the 10... I'm really surprised I'm the only one bidding 3 ...

My most beloved english phrase: "one couple saves two others".
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: 8 J953 AQT9 AK87
If I had bid 2 (indeed I would, I don't rebid NT with singletons) and partner bid 3, I would raise now, so yes, it would be much different.
