Liam Milne's bidding problem: K64 J97542 KQ4 4
Well, if you are using 3 as a 3 card limit raise, illd say this hand just about fits that description? Being concerned about getting too high should happen when formulating the methods, not when using them, in my opinion. I don't t hink that hand is worth ...
Should you duck Kx?
Declarer is prob 6313 or 6214. I think ducking loses if pard has 109x(x) of clubs but otherwise it is better. If declarer has A9xx they may play the Q next round after you duck, otherwise you push declarer into a winning finesse.
Eric Leong's bidding problem: AT864 J63 KT86 K
I agree with that, except opening this hand in my opinion is a winning action, but like everything, it has scenarios where it loses. Imagine partner had something like this, KQxx x QJx xxxx - consider passing versing opening. It would probably be game by the side that opens.
David Boxley's bidding problem: AQx Axxxx AKxx T
It would be critical for that bidding line that 4NT is to play. Because otherwise you are basically committing to slam by bidding 4, or an inferior contract to NT. Which is further evidence, in my opinion, why the bidding line is flawed - because 4NT is not to play ...
Eric Leong's bidding problem: AT864 J63 KT86 K
Yes, because if you discuss what a minimum opener looks like you will never get to non-making game. (I'm being sarcastic).
David Boxley's bidding problem: AQx Axxxx AKxx T
You don't need 16+ from partner for slam, you just need his points outside of clubs. A 4 card diamond fit and cards like these -K, kQ, QJ is what you need for slam. On the bidding pard prob has points in clubs, and more than just say A ...
David Boxley's bidding problem: AQx Axxxx AKxx T
Yes, with the 10 in hand, 3NT should be quite a comfortable spot :)
David Boxley's bidding problem: AQx Axxxx AKxx T
If 3NT is around minimum game going hand and good club values, then just pass and go positive. Partner is presumably 42(34), even with a 4-4 diamond fit there would be a long way to go. If pard had Kxxx Kx Qxxx Axx then presumably they wouldn't bid ...
Eric Leong's bidding problem: 8 Q42 AKQT95 J75
Perfect hand for a moysian. Its close between 3 and 4. Either way I wouldn't leave 3NT after the way partner has been bidding. More likely they don't have values in spades. Candidate hand for partner is xxx AK10x Jx AQxx Overall I think 3 ...
Paul Dalley's bidding problem: 9 KQ752 2 KJT752
With this partner I was not playing non-leaping michaels.
