Johan Karlsson's bidding problem: xxx xxx xxxx xxx
1NT. We play a direct 1NT as Raptor, hence must double on any strong enough balanced hand. To cater to that, our 1NT by advancer shows any 0–6 HCP without a four-card suit biddable at the one level. Here, good chance that doubler is balanced.
Barry Plotkin's bidding problem: A53 AK985 9 AK76

While all in favor of full disclosure, I think some of these ‘just bridge’ situations are just hard to accurately disclose. Take for example a 1NT response to 1/ (irrespective of forcing or not). Stating it as ‘0–12’ would suggest that 1/ be forcing, while ...
How would you bid this hand?
Yes, you are right. I misread the problem.
How would you bid this hand?
I open 1, then over partner's 1 response I rebid 2NT – which shows just what I have: an invitational hand with six+ diamonds and three hearts. This is our solution for the ‘Bridge World Death Hand’. With any strong (18–20) balanced hand we open 1 ...
