Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: T87 QJT85 A73 T7
Itzik, any results of the simulation?
Daniel Miles's bidding problem: 32 K97654 32 A76
John, what percent do we make 2nt, 3nt, and 4h vs. minimum hand with two hearts, and maximum hand with two hearts? If three trumps are so important, one option is to bid 2d-2h-2nt, then bid 4 over anything partner bids. This way we avoid bad 4 but ...
Florian Alter's bidding problem: AKQ96 J8 Q543 54
Should play last-train for those positions, slightly technically better to use 4 for it.
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: A4 5432 AQ65 752
It's actually a bad MP / BAM strategy. In MPs it is a clear X. So many ways to win: converting +100 -> +200, +100 -> +110, -110 -> -50. Only lose when partner takes out when they are two down (unlikely), or when they make (both unlikely, and inexpensive, since -110 is ...
Play problem in 4!S
I'd assume the leader does not have Singleton Club, so bad Club break practically means 4+ Clubs with W, including both QT (else singleton Q/T will show on first Club round and solve the hand). Cashing 3 trumps will fail on bad Club break as defined. Cashing 2 ...
The Choice
Simplest way is to look at the original cards regardless of what declarer plays: 6 is more likely to be low from 9865.
The Choice
"However, this is not true if declarer follows the strategy, that he will always play his LOWEST card if he wants you to play a CLUB" This is the equivalent of saying that restricted choice with 9 cards missing QJ won't work if the J drops, but your opponent ...
Assess the blame (11)
North hand is worth a slam unless top two tricks are missing. Unfortunately the 5 bid doesn't quite say that. It's therefore better to ask RKCB and accept the occasional loss of AK in around 5% of the hands, then to put the pressure on North to ...

And 20 hcp is not even in the original range (21-22hcp).

Doug, thanks for that. What tools did you use?
