Carl Mathiesen's bidding problem: K9753 A Q54 A982
Actually, my vote for Pass on this hand belonged to pd. 3 made as and 4-2. 3 NT would be down on lead as N held: Axxxx xx xx KD10x. My hand was: x QJxxxx AKxx xx
Carl Mathiesen's bidding problem: KQT9x xxx Jxx KJ

Carl Mathiesen's bidding problem: xx 9x 8xxx AQTxx

Carl Mathiesen's bidding problem: J97 AQ9752 J AJ5

Carl Mathiesen's bidding problem: 54 AQJT942 A95 A
My pd NEVER has the perfect cards...
Carl Mathiesen's bidding problem: 54 AQJT942 A95 A
The problem, I think, with bids over 4 is you don't know if pd's sacrificing at these colors or bidding to make. Yes - 6 would make with the hand you mention. However, if you hand is x Kx Kxxxxxx Kxxx and you bid 5 over ...
Carl Mathiesen's bidding problem: 54 AQJT942 A95 A
In the actual case S x with this hand; W bid 4 and pd 4 NT (at least two places to play). Your call....
