Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Slam defence
I can't play a second since it's not my turn. Not to mention declarer hasn't decided a suit yet from dummy.
Second trick
I am not sure I understand the reasoning behind several comments. Are you complaining to dummy while you are defending?
Brad Rind's bidding problem: AT96532 3 T7 T32
I would like to bid both grands. However, I probably dislike 2 a bit more, since it more or less shows that you also were going to vote for 7. Your hand can't be good enough to bid 2 and having a 7 card suit, not ...
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: 65 AQJT82 A AK98
What would double instead of 2NT be? Does either of these 2 bids say something specific for the length of s or s in partner's hand? I am not risking it anyway, though I've always played 2NT as natural, so have no feel about it.
Stephen Merriman's bidding problem: 76532 3 KQT95 T6
That's not the only bad thing I see, though it's true. If partner super accepts in I am bidding game happily. If partner super accepts in I have no idea what to do and where to go.
Andreas Babsch's bidding problem: Q K975 9764 KQ64
Change this Q to any red Q and ask me again...
Phil Clayton's bidding problem: KJ83 AKQJ 3 A963
Shawn, how much wait do you expect your KJ of to carry at a contract?
Jack Spear's lead problem: QT964 A82 AJ2 K9
9 Years ago, I had a student in the age of 85, that when he did not lead and ace, he did not have one. This hand would be a piece of cake for him, he would already know what was his card to play at the second trick.
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: Q432 KQ K3 AKQ86
All options (including 2) are flawed and possible. I like best the given 2, and least the double, because the auction may get out of hand fast. Doubling with few cards in the other major is dangerous, though we do it sometimes. Doubling and bidding NT is not ...
Alex Hydes's bidding problem: K4 AKQJT642 8 54
"I don't understand what P's bid is" Neither does he. Though I might have a clue: he's 6-6 in the minors, and asks someone that has an 8-card suit to pick his longest minor so as to play for just one trick more.
