Paul Grünke's bidding problem: K83 5 QJ7 AQT975
Which opener hands should bid 4 on this auction?
Paul Grünke's lead problem: K9 KT53 854 QJ42
Partner will almost always have four hearts, sometimes 5. I would have bid 4, if RHO had passed, but I thought that, 3 X would on on average result in a better MP score. With the opponents bidding to the 3-level with what seems to be 16 points ...
Paul Grünke's lead problem: K9 KT53 854 QJ42
The first double was takeout, the second one just showed points.
Dahl and Oshlag Lead Silodor Pairs
You are right. But so is the article.
To tank or not to tank
Action double would make sense here if 2 would be non-forcing, constructive. With the 2-bidder not being limited in any way, an action double does not work and and I think 4X should be the contract.

David Cole's bidding problem: 9 AJ9432 A643 82
I can not understand how passing can be right here. Three players already believe 1 is not making and there is really not much in my hand that suggests otherwise. I think 1 + XX is slightly better than 1NT + XX, because this way, we could also play 1NT ...
Paul Grünke's bidding problem: J9 AJ973 KT5 842
The actual hand was xxx KQx Qxx AKQx. I figured, that I would only go past 3NT at this point, if I have support. My main idea was, that I did not want to wrongside the contract with xxx in behind the 2-bid. I was aware, that this ...
