Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: K85 --- A8653 JT876
Presumably one of those places being spades? I'm probably guilty of inventing a bid to fit my hand here, but it seems to me that: a) With 5-5 spades and another, you don't lose much by bidding 3S, and might gain from the extra bidding space b) With ...
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: K85 --- A8653 JT876
4N seems unambiguous (which isn't to say it worked on this board, lest I bias anyone :), but is there a common sense meaning to 4H in this position?
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: AQJ7x xx AKx xxx
I didn't think of this as much of a problem either, but a friend has convinced himself that the hand is 'too good' for 1S and is unpersuaded by my arguments otherwise, so I wanted to add some wisdom of the crowds to the case.
Sasha Cooper's lead problem: AKJ AT8xx Txx xx

Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: 876 2 KQ954 AK93

Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: K952 QJ8 A3 A864
'KQxx xxx xx AQJx would be classical minimum values.' I think I'd feel happier about doubling with that - it looks like a hand with substantially better ODR than ours.
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: K952 QJ8 A3 A864
Well I passed this for similar reasons and got a bad result when opener rebid 1N and I had to pass that out. That's an auction where X obviously rates to be a winner (subject to P having 4 spades), but I struggle to think of any others - if ...
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AK532 QJT Q95 A9
It's unlikely to be true for about 50% of the pairs in *any* field
Yehudit Hasin's bidding problem: AK AKT95 Q T9864
So you want to make a bid on the grounds that no-one knows what it means?
