Should this bid be reported to the director ?
I think such a strange bid must mean "please pass". Would still have it reported. It's easier to pass when partner's done it before.
-590: assign the blame
It was inspired. After he's bid it, East-West are on a bad board whether they double it or not. The winning defence just looks too tough.
-590: assign the blame
East's double of 4 was dubious but not absurd.
Chris Chen's bidding problem: xxx x AJ KJT98xx
I don't quite have it but I'll take a chance.
Giovanni Bobbio's lead problem: 982 Q983 64 T743
Blind double just asks for a spade in my book. Unlucky.
Mark Jones's bidding problem: AK3 A5 KT98743 6
Should be making either 4 or 5. And if he can find 5 we'll bid a slam. QJxx Kxx Ax AJ10x would do.
A Better Structure for Transfers over Opponents' One-Level Take-out Doubles
Best to pass with 6-9 balanced after 1-dble, I think, and see if you like what they bid. Why let them off the hook?
Tomislav šAšEk's bidding problem: Q Txx Qx AQJxxxx
Can't imagine passing.
Nikolas Bausback's bidding problem: AK4 --- AKQ32 QJ864
It was a 1 opening bid last time I played Polish Club. Opening 1 with main suit diamonds is effectively a game-force.
Permissible enquiry?
Richard I do address both your points above.
