Max Schireson's bidding problem: AT J83 AKQ75 Q52
No, it is not even remotely cold. You have (according to your own example) AKxxx vs J8x trumps and A loser. Odds of making 5 tricks from AKxxx vs J8x is %27. Even singleton Q of trumps is no good. You need someone to hold precisely Qx.

[b]I would not have opened with my example hand.[/b] Fine but Craig I do not even know what you are talking about when you say slam would be good opposite xxx-AKxxx-Jx-Kxx. This is at BEST % 27 slam. Let alone being in slam, I would be scared to be ...

Should you duck Kx?
[b]Another possibility is that declarer is 6412 leaving partner with 1354 but declarer would be trying to ruff a heart and not drawing trumo.[/b] That leaves pd with 1255 (not 1354)
Should you duck Kx?
[b] If partner has 109x you will feel pretty silly.[/b]- S.Shi Why? Is pd not allowed to play mandatory false card of T or 9?
Forcing or not?
Playing 2 as natural as it states in OP, I do not know what is best. I strongly suggest playing 2 as 3rd suit forcing and not necessarily natural. It is the cheapest available 3rd suit forcing and makes the rest of the auction more comfortable with all ...
