Chuck Messinger's bidding problem: KQT43 7 984 A952
2S was my call. The singleton heart ruled out 1S for me.
Chuck Messinger's bidding problem: AT AQ832 K8543 A
Not only communication but the lack of spots in the red suits will make establishment tough.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: 983 AJ974 765 T6
2H NV maybe
Rich Regan's bidding problem: AKQx Qx Qxxx Qxx
I play these uncontested 5 of the trump suit bids as good trumps or good controls. Without a splinter from partner you are hard pressed to find a hand where slam isn't excellent. Jxxx KJX AKJxx K doesn't look like a 4S bid to me so I'm ...
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: KQJ86 76 A7 AQ86
You have an excellent shot at +200 or better by defending.
Sabrina Miles's bidding problem: 3 Q62 KT96 A9854
My old partner, Leo the Leaper, would occasionally respond in a 3 card major. Invariably I would have a splinter raise and we would get to the only making game on a Moysian.
Sabrina Miles's bidding problem: 3 Q62 KT96 A9854
IMHO it's much better to pay the single raise as INV and the criss-cross as GF. You often collect a penalty and, as with this hand, you don't play a 7 card fit at the 3 level.
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: QT8764 K KQ4 K84
I'm off 5 keycards. There are a few hands where partner will push with 3 keycards to the 5 level ala Axxx xxxx Ax AQx where the wrong 3-0 split will be fatal. With 4 keycards partner will often take another call and I can gleefully cooperate.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: AJT4 T763 875 AQ
A hand where you might have bid 3D to show an invitational hand with both majors leaving the cuebid as a game force.
Ankur Rathi's bidding problem: J976 T4 AQ6 AK75
If you want to let favorable vul opps push you around that's fine with me. Partner made a limit raise, I accepted and bid a game. Now I just let them have their way at the five level with only one option to invite partner on?
