David Hankins's bidding problem: AJ8 J63 T98 QJT4
Paul - what bid/methods do you use here to show a good raise (irrespective of whether or not it's worthwhile)?
Kevin Cline's bidding problem: J KQ98 K7 AQT983
I'd bid 4C if I were confident that pard could read it as showing clubs w/ heart support. Failing that, I'm bidding 3S which ought to be clear.
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: Q53 QT852 A2 976
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: Q74 832 KQT42 J3
If they have hearts, I'd like a diamond lead... but it's not clear that they have hearts. If they have clubs, I want to defend at the 3-level. A 3D lead-directing call risks buying the contract in 3S, sometimes in cases where pard doesn't fit diamonds at ...
Opponents remind you of your own failure to alert -- AI or UI?
Let's suppose that a similar auction occurred: Namely: You are first to bid and it goes... 1S-(X)-2H... Out-of-turn, doubler now asks what 2H means... at which point you realized that this is a good raise to 2S. Doubler has asked about a bid out-of-turn... is this still ...

@Kieran: How do you play 3C in these sequences?: (1D/M)-X-(P)-2C-(P) (2D/M)-3C
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: QT82 KJ5 T5 AQT6
Partnership agreement to preempt w/ 5-card major factors in. Pard did not preempt - so 5 spades a bit less likely. Not mentioned in OP... so I guess that this inference is correct. If the above is per OP's agreements... then it seems as if I'm more likely than ...
David Hankins's bidding problem: KQT2 AKT 83 J643
Just so... yet some sort of expert treatment/analysis of doubles is sorely lacking. One may think that such-and-such is best following a double and subsequent competition... but agreements with partner are essential. Moreover, the traditional treatment is that the raise - for better or worse - shows extras and invites game ...
Jeff Ford's bidding problem: Q4 AQ6 K86 KJT32
4S for me - can win in numerous ways; tt these colors, will often propel opponents into 5D/5H. 3S begets an automatic 4H response... at which point, who knows? I prefer that the last guess is with the opposition.
David Hankins's bidding problem: KQT2 AKT 83 J643
Your remark seems to be in almost universal alignment w/ Bridgewinner agreements. Yet, as an old-school bidder, this treatment is a bit foreign to me. I've a rather extensive bridge library... and every book I've read treats this raise as invitational to game showing extra values; yet the ...
