Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What do these show?
I am a junior, and play (1m)-X-(1M)-X as psych-exposing. Maybe I will have no need for this in a few years, but for now...
Brian Zhang's bidding problem: A8 KJ983 KJ76 T4
For me, sort of depends on agreements as to what hand types bid 3. If it's just about the diamond quality, then by all means.
Best approach to this card combo
Hope declarer's LHO has KJx. Run the 8 to the J, then smother the T while finessing the K with the Q. I agree with Khokan, but this is what the intrafinesse would be (I think -- someone correct me if I'm wrong).

Raphael Hallerman's bidding problem: KJ 8543 A4 A7654
Seems about right. I expect most votes other than 7/7/7NT to be for Pass. Mostly curious how many people WOULD choose to pass 2 with this hope. If you think that the wording of the problem is somehow biased towards passing, I could definitely repost ...
