Sarik Goyal's bidding problem: T743 Q87 AKQT9 4

Brian Zhang's bidding problem: A8 KJ983 KJ76 T4
I think 3 is a better bid at IMPs, but the scoring is MPs. While 3NT will sometimes be wrong, I feel like it is the percentage action. Interesting observation -- give the original hand one more spade and one less heart and we would clearly end up in 3NT ...

4NT over 3 may be interpreted as RKC for clubs

Sarik Goyal's bidding problem: J864 6 QT42 AQJT
Just wondering — how likely would you say game is on this hand? At the table I concluded that game was quite unlikely and opted for a “preemptive” 3. This worked out well when neither opponent could find a bid while they were cold for 4 in their nine ...
