Jim Priebe's bidding problem: 743 JT97 T974 32
What are you supposed to bid with a tricks-based NT hand that isn't good enough to rebid 3NT?
Walter Schmid's bidding problem: AQ753 --- T3 KQJT73
I don't think so. South will know what to do if North has 0, 1 or 3 but how will s/he know what to do if North has 2 of them? We could be going down if North has 2 fast diamonds losers or Ax(..) and they lead ...
Bill Segraves's bidding problem: T9xxx Kxx xxx Qx
Playing this way opener can rebid: • 2 with 3-card support and normal reverse. Responder can pass with something like the hand you gave (or worse) or decide to play in a 4-3 fit. • 3 with a monster, e.g., AKx-x-AKxx-AKxxx. Responder can still pass but needs very little ...
Bill Segraves's bidding problem: T9xxx Kxx xxx Qx

Walter Schmid's bidding problem: AQ753 --- T3 KQJT73
I would have opened 1.
Bill Segraves's bidding problem: A K532 KT985 J43
I wouldn't open it because I have rebid problems. I would open a hand with the same high/suit structure and shape if I had an easy rebid.
Merijn Groenenboom's bidding problem: 2 KQJ873 KJ3 AQJ
4 doesn't seem like enough and 5 might be get us to the wrong spot (strain and/or level). I have had some success hedging with negative double in this situation so it is what I voted for.
