Dave Robinson's bidding problem: AQJT742 K5 QT84 ---
Good chance you can make 3 opposite x Qxxxx J9x xxxx
Mike Cassel's bidding problem: T K5 K754 AQJ987
How about a 3 splinter? Good chance you want to be in 3NT, so give partner a chance to bid it. That is, if you think splinters are still applicable over a double.
Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: QJ8 AT94 JT7 KJ5
Or does he have a shapely minor hand, 5 clubs and 6 diamonds, willing to play at least 4?
My Turn to Speak
We wouldn't be able to purchase Board Incompetence Insurance because of pre-existing conditions.
How to bid 6!H (or 7!H if you like)
2 2 (bust) 3NT (25-27) 4 (transfer) 4 (accepted) 5 (1430) 5 (5 without) 6 Partner has 6-8hcp unaccounted for, and there is a greater than 50% chance that there is no heart loser.
1NT or 1C
That's funny I am just the opposite. I like upgrading 17's to 1 of a minor and 19's to 2NT because they have more of those high cards that justify an upgrade, but I want a 5-cd suit as well. But I rarely upgrade a 14-count. Change ...
Queen of Trumps ask when playing RKCB 1430
The Club's Coffee-Housing
Maybe if we all waited 5 seconds before playing to every trick, this wouldn't be a problem.
ATB missed slam
Would west really know this? What if east is K85 KJ KT76 KJ53 or K85 KJ5 KT76 KJ3 Also, how does west find out about east's hand playing specific kings?
ATB missed slam
Is east good enough for a 3 bid?
