Craig Biddle's bidding problem: J87654 KJ2 3 KQT
Partner holds QT, AXX JXXXX, X 3 Spades is on a highly likely finesse.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: Qxxx AJTxx ATx x
so the Diamond Ace was left in the bidding box and I just now found it. What makes me think that a 4-4 spade fit will not play better than hearts. I think I'll bid 3 Clubs to gather some input and over a 3H or S call bid ...
Henry Sun's bidding problem: AQxx Qxx KJxxx x
for years I played the support double to say: if the opponents had passed I would have raised with 3 card support. Playing like this 1S would be automatic. I gave it up as too many partners disagreed.
Art Korth's bidding problem: T52 AQ6 KQ72 QJ3
Much to gain or loose by doubling. My style is to get in there.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: 973 K84 K95 AT75
I assume that when I opened I intended to show 10-13 balanced. Nothing has changed. If partner has a minimum hand with 5+ hearts he can correct. When a freewheeling system is played to many rules clog the wheels.
Jeff Bayone's bidding problem: 98752 J4 A AKT52
before 2/1 I opened 1C as 1S-2X-3C promised extra values. With 2/1 I open 1S and play 3C to show shape rather than values
Dick Vatter's bidding problem: AK7 AJ8 6 KJT874
actually I have more empathy with the 2C call following the old Roth-Stone idea of "if I can get past this round"
Dick Vatter's bidding problem: AK7 AJ8 6 KJT874
As the lone 2NT bidder I wonder what partner is to do over 3C with 3-3-5-2 distribution and no major suit stopper? Punt with 3D? Raise C? Just gamble? I think not. Just reevaluate and bid 2NT.
Elaine Garofalo's bidding problem: xxxx xx xxxx Txx
Richard that's highly negative. Firstly you are not yet doubled and the opponents may bid again plus they may also chuck a trick on opening lead. Also this is match points and -470 rates to score no better than -800. It is nearly always better to bid once more ...
Elaine Garofalo's bidding problem: xxxx xx xxxx Txx
Why are folks so confident that they are going -800. In my game 3C is preemptive and RHO passed. Partner has a mountain but I don't wish to encourage with a 3 spade call. A confident 3H seems best
