François "Dellache"'s bidding problem: QJ65 AQ82 K AKT3
This is a well known messy situation - facing a 4-level preempt with a strong hand and the wrong shape, generally coming with massive defense but no way to double as penalties. One possibility is to play 4NT as natural - which would fit the above hand nicely - but I find it ...
Nikos Delimpaltadakis's bidding problem: KT6 T4 KQT7 AK63
I'm certainly missing something, but going on with the crowd and happily pass just scares me. What do I have that LHO should be surprised of? 3 obviously isn't a lead director, so unless he's noob he certainly holds 7 solid clubs possibly with some kind ...
Dan Zagorin's bidding problem: ATxx AKx x AKJxx
First thought is to pass in order to not turn a plus score in 4 into a minus one in a contract, but on 2nd look the colors are worrisome. North's 4 vul against not should show 8, maybe 9 playing tricks. Considering he has weak ...
François "Dellache"'s bidding problem: AT8 74 AT865 T97
I don't see how passing this minimum hand, with extremely low offense/defense ratio (5332, two aces, no diamond quacks) can be technically wrong. Of course it can lead to a bad matchpoint result for some random reason, but I don't care.
François "Dellache"'s bidding problem: J8754 AT973 --- Q85
Sounds like a misfit hand. I like my chances on defense, i have hearts under control and partner presumably has diamonds, and the colors are right also (can score 200 or even 300 on a good day). As for spades, i might have cranked up a (very dubious) 1 ...
François "Dellache"'s bidding problem: KT8 AT94 AK985 2
Pass. I believe the X should show 3-card support AND a good looking hand that won't score -300 on a partscore deal should partner hold no more than what he already promised, i.e. 5-6HCP and a crappy four card trump suit. And that's what I expect to ...
François "Dellache"'s bidding problem: KQ854 A8765 T 76
The 2 range should not leave an empty space between 2 and 1M openings. This hand is too strong for 2, hence I must open 1.
François "Dellache"'s bidding problem: K65 AKQJ AJ2 J32
Vul at imps I'm willing to overbid this hand, partially on the fact that 3 might also go down, cutting my losses to 3 imps instead of 6. 3 in any other scoring situation.
François "Dellache"'s bidding problem: Q2 AT9 AKQ4 AKJ3
6 must mean "I'm taking a shot AND I see no better alternative, partner please don't look at your hand, just PASS", with some freak hand containing a void such as KJxxxxx - Kxxx xx. Firing the bid at partner's face holding something like AKJxxx xx xx ...
François "Dellache"'s bidding problem: AKT2 KQT64 Q KJ2
If I gambled a first round pass (an interesting choice at these colors), isn't it for trying to make money out of 1x ? I just hit the dream scenario when it could have been more awkward if West had found something to bid.
