Floyd McWilliams's bidding problem: QT9862 32 53 A74
"My money is on this being posted following a hesitation by West." Nope.

Craig Biddle's bidding problem: AK8643 K 3 AKJ32

Jack Spear's bidding problem: Q8765432 Q 32 32
Imagine that you held this hand with the pointed suits switched. You'd pass, expecting partner to hold the majors. So partner with his misfitting minor two suiter is going to bury you for passing. He'll think there is a diamond fit. 2 also seems wrong, partner will ...
Natural??
"Seems interesting that "old style" is natural when back in the day opening bids were sounder and so were raises." Perhaps back in the day, opener was less likely to have an 11 count than in 2018 but more likely to have a 3-count?
All Strong Club Players Are Now Bidding 2!D With Short Diamonds
Paul: In my case the interest is due to Flight B GNT / NAP, but I think it's a little strange that players in limited events like Gold Rush Pairs will have to change the system they've been using for years. (Of course most of them will have no ...
