Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: AQ63 T82 A98 972
Agree that this hand seems too strong for 2S. Choosing between 2S and 3S is often a big guess with wide ranges, and light openings create even wider ranges. (Vul at matchpoints is the worst for light initial actions.) Modified Bergan raises can help, when 3C could show 4card raises ...
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: AJ AKT984 96 K54
Pass. My vulnerable LHO believes he can take a lot of tricks in 4 spades, missing the AJ, which are very favorably placed for his side. (Nonvulnerable 4 bids go down much more often.) A nonvul 5-level bid by our side has another way to win if it doesn ...
Richard Granville's bidding problem: Q976 Q7 QJ643 JT
Coincidentally, on the companion problem, we were able to surmise the likely distribution based on the opponents' failure to raise a 5card major. Here the opponents, playing 4card majors, could still have an 8card heart fit. Would partner ever bid 2H to show a maximum NT without a club stop ...
Ronald Vickery's bidding problem: A7 KQ82 962 J762
Best Bart continuation here is 2S over 2C showing the better hand (so 1S-1N-2C-2D-2S does not interfere with the message)
Gordon Rainsford's bidding problem: J865 7652 AJ72 4
Not so likely that contracting for one trick below game in the major of our choice will be the winning action...
Paul D East's bidding problem: 8 A AKQJ32 KJT52
No explicit discussion.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: JT9743 QJ86 9 63
Thanks for giving the hand--Although one hand never means anything, I somehow always like to know...(and I am impatient to wait a few days before giving my actual hands)
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: QJ8 K5 AK Q86543
We can be first to bid 1NT, the highest scoring partial, and 3NT is the most likely game. Our partnership will be in good position for continuations.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: JT9743 QJ86 9 63
My understanding is that taking out the double of 5 means that I am expecting to make my contract...
Gregory Nowak's bidding problem: KT643 A32 KT6 98
If playing Kokish methods, 2C-2D-2H = artificial relay to 2S, responses to 2C other than 2D can interfere with accurate continuations. To make this less frequent, the following are all good: strict suit quality requirements, no control-showing responses below three, no immediate double-negative.
