Tales from the Past, Part 2: Double Bay
It could be this: http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/a-hand-from-double-bay/
Gerry Gassman's bidding problem: AK 532 AJT98 A76
After 2 by South I would bid 4 by North.
Bill Campbell's bidding problem: AQ9 Jxxx K9x xxx
Looking at your comments I think you have missed out a large part of the auction.
Preben Schmidt's bidding problem: JT8 Q94 Q Q87543
Too many negatives: a bad suit, good 3 card fragments in the majors.
ATB oversave
2 does not deprive EW of any bidding space and in fact gives west two extra calls - double and pass. By bidding 3 EW must start their auction a level higher.
ATB oversave
A 7-card suit is not needed to pre-empt at favourable.
Johan Karlsson's lead problem: K8643 AT62 T94 T
Did partner forget to cue raise? Did I bid 3 to remind myself that I overcalled 1?
Emanuel Evacic's bidding problem: KQT K5 K842 QT74
I think this is the East hand.
Assign the Blame
Yes, whether or not 3 is a good bid is based on partnership agreement. In my regular partnership 3 shows the south hand. We use 3 to show a distributional raise. In an unfamiliar partnership is it best to just bid 4.
Assign the Blame
1 is automatic. North doesn't even need 5 hearts to bid 1.
