François "Dellache"'s bidding problem: A K8642 QT43 AJ5
4nt looks fine - partner will understand that the key factor for slam is the quality of his spades. And of course he will bid 6 and not 6nt if he can't see a possible recovery against a bad spade break opposite the typical 15(34) pattern suggested by ...
Marc Bonnet's lead problem: J8 AQJT5 KJ8 J32
No clear-cut choice among really ugly leads, every lead may be the only one that blows it. My ratings : 2 or8 : 5/10. Hoping to not blow a trick and collect 4 tricks on passive defense 8 : 5/10. Looks more dangerous but might strike gold if partner has ...
Marc Bonnet's bidding problem: --- 873 KJ62 AT9532
The expectancy of 3 is negative at these colors. With an empty 6 card suit, I really risk going for -800 or -1100 and the potential damage to the opps bidding when they should declare does not compensate this. Simulations made by my partner tend to say that a ...
Marc Bonnet's bidding problem: KQT7 AKT8 J A642
Double is perfectly descriptive - extra offensive values and no clear direction. Slam might make but might also be doomed especially in the likely case when partner also has a stiff , so I'm not willing to commit to it with 5nt. If partner removes that, he is sure to ...
Marc Bonnet's bidding problem: 85 A AKQT8632 86
1, wait and see. I need to know what other players have to say in order to choose my direction - 3nt or 5/6/7. 5 is perfectly descriptive and might buy the contract when opps have a better score available in 5M, but might also be ...
François "Dellache"'s bidding problem: K KQT96 AQT KQT5
5nt pick a slam. This is basically a guess, and opps activity at these colors make me optimistic about finding the right cards in partner's hand. Otoh I'm clearly not happy collecting 300 in 4x
Marc Bonnet's lead problem: J632 K97 KT A532
Black suit leads are horrible,K is bad, so I pick up 7 as least of evils.
Xavier Truel's bidding problem: KQ7 T3 83 T87642
We play a customized system where 45 hands are opened 1 even with reverse values.

Edited.
François "Dellache"'s lead problem: AJT9 Q9x xx xxxx
I strongly advise running a simulation for this kind of problem. A spade is clearcut at imps but at MPs it runs a high risk to give away a trick to declarer's K or Q, so what ? I would bet that : - and leads are close in the ...
