Everyone makes 3N
A8765432 KJ Q109 ---. The hand is symmetrical around the table, the Q109 being opposite the long suit.
The lost cause of the Jacobyites

Nice presentation and hands. Well done.
When Is It Good To Raise Partner's 1 Major Response With A 3 Cards Support?
The first bidding diagram has a 1 opening rather than 1. Nice article.
