Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: 2 AQ53 KT753 743
I went ahead and bid that (before reading all the comments asking ehy that wasn't an option.)
2NT after jump advance of T/O double
LOL :-)
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: AJ963 KQ2 84 KJT
Why would you agree to play semi-forcing and then treat it as forcing? If you won't pass a 5332 12 count, just play forcing notrump.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: 7 AKJ76 76 QJ965
Is this actually a limit raise? For me a limit raise is 11 to 12 in support, or 3.5 cover cards. The description as given could easily include a flat 9 or 10, or 3 cover cards, with a strong likelihood of wasted values in spades. I voted for ...

Should District 9 have resigned?
Need a simulation. A possible approach would be to find other fourth-quarter results by teams way behind as the base for the swinging strategy (if it appears such teams did, in fact, swing) while using first-quarter results for the non-swing approach. Ideally those might be from the same team in ...
2NT after jump advance of T/O double
The polling so far agrees with that, and personally I think both hands to be rather poor. In fairness +120 would've matchpointed well.
Should District 9 have resigned?
And the team playing catch-up will likely be taking anti-percentage actions, so the probability of success is surely worse than a coin-flip. Assume, for example, a 40% success rate -- the odds become 1/6103. Also, your 1 in 4 chance of 80+ IMPs includes cases where even more IMPs are ...
