Allen Kahn's bidding problem: --- AKQJ5 AQJT63 Q8
1. I expect the bidding may well come back to me at 4, so I want to get the hearts in now. I plan to bid diamonds next, rebidding them if necessary to emphasize they are for real. If partner bids spades (or clubs) he should NOT assume ...
Yet Another What's This Double
Good clubs, strong hand, short spades.
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: AK532 --- 53 A97432
I voted pass, but I would likely have bid 2 followed now by 4, unless 2 shows something like 10+.
Bob Okker's bidding problem: 62 AK7 J983 AQ84

Jeff Sapire's bidding problem: 3 AK764 KQJ74 K5
In the sequence 1-1; 2NT-?, a common agreement is that all bids are forcing. An alternative is to play something artificial, such as Wolff or transfers. The given sequence, and many others, seems similar to me: an invitational 2NT opposite a hand not tightly limited in strength. Absent ...
Antonio Cocco's bidding problem: KQT8 AKT98 T6 62
With no significant extra high cards, playing strength or shape, no reason to bid again.
