Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Which bids do you NOT agree?
Pulling to 5 because you don't want to risk passing an undiscussed 5 is a reasonable position. Actually defining 5 over the double as a mere preference between the minors is not, in my opinion, a reasonable position.
Ho Yee So's bidding problem: Q9 A963 J AKQJ43
Is it really a guess? I'm not going to introduce my ace-empty-fourth or put down dummy with a stiff trump and a solid 6-card side suit.
Which bids do you NOT agree?
If partner wants me to pick a minor, he can redouble 4NT. That's not an offer to play, is it? 5 over the double is a strong statement.
Phyllis Yates's bidding problem: x Ax AKJx xxxxxx

Field day
Yes, I'm aware, but that still doesn't mean you shouldn't take your "only" chance at your contract if you "know" that West "can't" have the K.
Field day
Well, if you think that West "can't" have the K after the spade lead, you might as well try to drop it singleton with East.
4!H/6!D Across from 2N Opener
It's useful to play these new-suit 4m bids as optional keycard asks. For example: 2NT - 3 (regular Stayman, but it works for Puppet too) 3 - 4 (diamonds) ? 4 by opener says he dislikes his hand for diamonds. Now 4 by responder asks for keycards ...
