Whats your plan - making 4S
Quick drop in from work so might have missed something simple: Think I would cash the K and play a spade to the Ace. Guarantees on any 3-2. I also catch stiff Q in either hand and can trump coup North if they have 3+. What all the ...

Mikael Rimstedt's bidding problem: A A8 KQ8754 AJ87
Bit surprised by the poll results thus far. I knew my action would be considered off-centre but thought the "flexible" DBL would have a bigger proportion. People are obviously more rigid about length.

Gonzalo Goded's bidding problem: J652 9752 QT QT5
Slows the auction down. This hand is marginal but I don't mind it with quacky values. I played against a top international who went so far as to bid this with Jxx,Qxx,Kxxxxx, x (we both agreed afterwards this was too good).
Defense against short club and transfer responses
XX = 4 with better than 1 = 4 with better than Other bids: Treat like 1-(1)
