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 ...
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.
