Vlad Grigorean's lead problem: K87 Q9875 J4 KJ9
Hearts was bid on your left.
Ethan Liu's lead problem: 752 K97 T42 8762
7 at matchpoints. Low heart at IMPs.
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: AJT854 QT3 A95 3
You could try 2 as a PJO, but with the opener on your right your game chances are not too bad. Game is a favorite opposite: Qxx, KJx, Kxx, xxxx which has no wastage, but is not too much to ask.
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: AJT854 QT3 A95 3
2 if it is agreed to be an IJO.
If a hesitation can be unethical can a quick bid also?

Peter Gill's bidding problem: KJT5 93 85 KJT95
I will bid 4 Over3. I expect a heart correction from LHO. My double of 3 may help partner if the enemy compete to 5 over my 4.
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: T932 --- 765 KT8532
Partner is big and balanced. Experience suggests it pays to let him show his values before you bid. Otherwise, partner tends to get overboard.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: AKT76 J 8743 J82
Why should I think game might not make? I have 9 working HCP and partner might still have significant extras. Yes partner is more likely to be min, but I would guess game makes at 1/3 of the time, given that partner's hand is relatively unlimited. Passing is ...
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: 82 64 A8632 J764
This sequence is stronger. A direct 3S shows a constructive preempt. This hand is also very distributional, but is strong enough that you don't mind if the enemy finds a fit in a lower suit.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: AKT76 J 8743 J82
Way too strong to pass. Games pay a bonus, and I don't want to miss one.
