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.
Xavier Truel's bidding problem: KQ7 T3 83 T87642
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 ...
Tommy Cho's bidding problem: AQJ94 93 9753 52
This hand is 5422 and this is very, very different from 5332. The 4th round of is almost surely a winning trick (ruffed by partner). If partner has short diamonds 4 is almost always cold even on minimal HCP count. There is no way I stay short of ...
François "Dellache"'s lead problem: T975 AKT83 Q32 2
Sure enough, there are good cases for leading a high heart, or a deceptive 3, or even a spade, but I don't see a clear reason to not go for my normal lead.
François "Dellache"'s bidding problem: A982 987542 --- QT4
Partner might have gambled a pass at these colors if he held a diamond stack. So I like more my chances in another game than 3NT, and my shape is perfect for a 4 COG.
John Uchida's bidding problem: QJ5 QJ82 QJ75 KJ
+1 Ugly 13 does qualify just like a fair 12.
François "Dellache"'s bidding problem: AK65 Q6 AQ854 82
45m22 is a no-brainer 1m opening for me whatever the strength, unless on very few extreme hands.
François "Dellache"'s bidding problem: 2 98743 AKQJ43 7
Interesting. My deciding factor is that I may sometimes consider blank 5 card suits as 4 card ones, so 1 it is. Naturally on this extreme hand the lead directing factor is a bonus.
