Richard Granville's lead problem: Q KT863 AT65 876
Assuming that West showed 4card spades on this auction...
David Caprera's bidding problem: J93 KQ943 Q J975
A common opening bid by West at the other table will be 1NT. Taking advantage of the opportunity of overcalling 1 or 1 here can be quite successful, and is a known weakness of strong club systems. "Take what they give you." When I play strong club, I ...
Mark Jones's bidding problem: J6 AJ86 Q764 KT5
Double. Can't pass, even on Wednesday, probably ending our participation in the auction. At least over our double (not showing spade tricks), partner is more likely to bid with the right hand. Everyone knows West is not expecting to go down too many.
Bill Segraves's bidding problem: AKQT5 AKQ4 853 4
I copied 3-way Drury from someone some time ago: 2D=4-card. 2C=3-card, either constructive raise 1M-2C-2D-2M or limit raise 1M-2C-2D-2oM, then 2N by opener next is like Jacoby 2N.
Ronald Vickery's bidding problem: JT9532 K83 AK7 8
Most would treat this as a forcing pass situation by definition, but a written definition can be complicated. For clarity here I like to use double over 3 (through 4) showing strength and creating the forcing pass, while 4 could be the "playing strength" game-accept.
Bill Segraves's bidding problem: AKQT5 AKQ4 853 4
Without partner's redouble of 4, ten tricks may be our limit. Like others, I would have simply bid 4 on the second round.
David Parsons's bidding problem: 6 AKQ4 97643 T93
2. My limit-raise value is based on play in diamonds, not 3NT which my partner may bid over 3. Because spades were not raised, partner is quite likely to have 4-card length there, but did not bid 1NT over 1, so my strategic underbid, hoping to bid ...
Online tempo
Like others, I think tempo breaks usually do indicate a choice of bids/plays by an opponent. And I can't avoid noticing my slow-typing partner's tempo break when he describes his self-alert to the opponents.
Joshua Donn's lead problem: Q852 K852 J73 J4
Hoping for partner's ace-fifth...
Can Eser Yurtsever's bidding problem: Kx xxxx AQxxx xx
2 on 2nd round, then 3 over 3 next round. I play 3 is forcing following the cuebid.
