Tracy Brines's bidding problem: 7 AK9 AK432 AQ9x
It's really close. What pushes me to 6 is that partner didn't try for 3nt as they might with spade wastage. Also, partner's 1 over 1 figures to be less pushy than it might be over a 1 opener. Additionally, since my 3 ...
Mark Chen's bidding problem: K52 AQ4 A953 K53
Wish I could super-like Leo's comment (this one, not the one about not bidding the 1nt). I hate the 1nt as natural here, but if partner and I have agreed it, I'm bidding it here. If I'm not going to bid it with this hand I shouldn ...
Attitude or Count Signal?
You play obvious shift, correct? So the 2 just says, "I'd rather see spades continued than to see a diamond on the table." Or do you not play obv shift in this partnership?
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: AKT7 A4 QJ7652 9
Do you really want partner to do something else with: QJx, Kxx, AKx, XXXX? I'm not saying bidding on is a good idea - I probably wouldn't, but hanging this entirely on partner doesn't seem right.
Joel Wooldridge's bidding problem: 8 Q965 KT9xx 875

MANFIELD Wins Mixed Teams
Bravo! Congratulations to the team, the WBLers, and especially Melanie. Great work!!!
Mark Chen's lead problem: K875 AJT8 A9 J72
I swear, I didn't look. ...and I didn't play that week.
What is your ruling?
Ah, yes. Brain cramp. Good point by you.
What is your ruling?
So, if you KNOW that partner could NEVER have bid 5 over your transfer with a normal 1nt hand you have 2 possibilities: 1. Partner psyched. 2. Partner forgot that we are playing Texas. Since option 2 is clearly "suggested" by the UI of the failure to alert you ...
What is your ruling?
Why do you think West is free to bid 5? Who would ever bid 5 if they KNEW that partner had taken 4 as a transfer?
