Jonathan Cohn's bidding problem: AQT765 QJ9 A T95

Jonathan Cohn's bidding problem: 752 Q72 75 Q9842
I am a novice player and deduced from the question that PASS was NOT the best bid. I bid 2C and now know (from further deduction) that a big penalty could be avoided if you take the free call and bid your 5-card suit ASAP. Don't worry that "partner ...
