Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: 876 2 KQ954 AK93
Yup. We ended up selling out to 2S-1, with 4 making, and both thought we should have bid up.
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.

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 ...

Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: x AQJ AKQ9x AKQx
As for useful systems, I'm still partial to my own *cough*Fantunes*cough* variant, which lets you open this a natural 1, show a strong hand over P's natural 1 response, hear a negative from P, and then continue with a natural and forcing 3 ...
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: x AQJ AKQ9x AKQx
The actual auction continued: 4 5 6 Partner put down this beauty: xxxx xxxx x Jxxx Certainly a better contract than 6, but that was little consolation for the predictable -1.
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: x AQJ AKQ9x AKQx
