The 5 level belongs to: __________
Partner will be straining to bid with his diamond void. I don't see why we even have half the deck.
Bob Heitzman's bidding problem: AKQJ64 52 QT3 A9
In these auctions, bidding should imply club shortness (I view Ax as close enough). One can pass on 2/3 card holding and double with 4+ seeking to defend (alternatively pass with no wastage and see if partner can act). (There's an argument that 4C should be void-showing in ...
David Parsons's bidding problem: AQJ 5 AKQJT8 AKT
Richard, is it possible for a 2C-then-3D bidder not to have at least 2/3 top honors?
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: QT AJ QT942 Q854
I'd still pass, but switching the minors, over 4N, at least I'd end up in my 5-3 fit opposite 5233.
Rebid Problem?
We use Unbal-1 - 1 ; 1N as Gazzilli-like, which makes 1 - 1 ; 2 limited ... this sort of ameliorates the false-preferences (that is, 1 - 1 ; 2 - 2 is to play). But in a SA context, 1N natural looks simple enough. Had a club ...
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: KQT95 8 AQJT86 T

Yuan Shen's bidding problem: AJ8 --- 3 AJT875432
It's been more than two years, so I can't remember the hand. I have a nagging feeling that 6 was makeable (partner didn't have such a good hand for his slam bid ...).
When do you double for the lead (or otherwise) against this bidding to 7N holding an A?
On this auction, unless the ops are playing really deep, the only aces I can't have are the ace (in that solid suit presumably) or the ace, the fourth suit. If I double, I'm getting a spade lead; if I pass, I'm probably getting a ...
