Dave Robinson's bidding problem: QJ98 76 53 KQ863
Double is penalty. If you were that eager to compete, you would have done it the round before.
Dan Denison's bidding problem: K73 KJT93 T AJT8
You have the wrong shortness to get too excited by this hand. 4 is enough.
Rodney Lighton's bidding problem: QT65 AK65 A632 J
Unfortunately I do not have a 2.5 spades bid.
John Moschella's bidding problem: Q7 T QTxxx KTxxx
Either raise 4C to 6 or even 7C or pass. bidding 5C is asking for what actually happened. We probably have no defense against 7S and if we sac in 7C after this slower auction, they may find it.
David Hankins's bidding problem: xxxx J9x Q AQ8xx

Rainer Herrmann's bidding problem: A AQJ3 K943 9862
2. The hand has some minuses--the stiff ace, possible wastage in the trump suit and a 4441 shape which isn't super.
18-19 HCP for 2NT rebid - why?
Most experts playing a standard method (SA, 2/1, Acol, KS, etc.) use 18-19 and 20-21 as their 2NT ranges. There is a reason for using a 2-point range for 2NT calls. After a 2NT opening (or rebid), there is no room to invite a game. That means responder must ...
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: KT93 --- 765 JT8532
Sounds like pard is big and balanced. 2 gives him room to 2N which I can remove to 3. If I 3, I will hear 3N next. Then what?
