Jim Rasmussen's bidding problem: AK3 Q73 AKJT K43
I am more pessimistic and anticipate a potential loser with me having only 3 s. I would interpret 4NT as RKC. Given that, X shows an even number (2 of keys). If we do have a slow loser, we have only about 10-11 tricks in s or NT ...
Jordan Lampe's bidding problem: 8432 AQ3 T943 T7
If partner is 0445, we need to be in 5. 3 is a good call to get there. 3 would be made on 0 hcps.
David Sackett's bidding problem: KJ9 J65 A6 QJT92
My double stopper is a plus and should allow me time to set up clubs or hearts for extra tricks. A 4 contract may run into ruffs - especially if partner has 3 small. Hearts may split badly and clubs may be your source of tricks. Double is ...
David Libchaber's bidding problem: 2 A942 AK76 A952
I bid 5 with some trepidation. Often our suits split badly, but I would think partner has 10+ points with 4 s and 2 s. You might beat 4 2 but I think that is the limit.
Jenish Shah's bidding problem: KJ2 Q8 Q742 J954
Its a crap hand and partner could not move because he presumably has 3+ s. Pass and let them misplay it.
Jyri Tamminen's bidding problem: A63 AQJ6 J92 A52
I don't have the distribution to bid 5. Its all about distribution. Partner has to have something outside of K and he knows you have a honor (generally the A).
Ian Wilson's bidding problem: --- K3 KJ97652 K965
Sounds like resulting the board. What if you LHO had partner's hand? Any contract is likely off as bunch. Take your zero and accept that sometimes percentage choices get bad results. You have very little defense. Opening 1 is out. 2 weak might be okay or ...
Yusuf Sohtorik's bidding problem: 9854 Qxx Jx AKxx
Pass is best because partner would jump to 2 with 14 hcp. So you are not missing game here. You have 10 hcp with a potentially non-useful Q. Just pass.
Phillip Vest's lead problem: T64 87632 874 Q4
This is a classic "lets try to find partner's suit" lead. You have no entries unless you count the Qx; so leading any is 95/100 useless because unless you find partner with a perfect holding, you will never set up tricks there. I would certainly lead ...
Chris Derrick's bidding problem: A9xxxx Ax AQTxx ---
I bid 5 to start partner thinking about slam if he has good spades and K. He may be worried about clubs but I should double with 2 quick club losers; ergo, I have at least 2nd round club control and 1st round control. (With most partners ...
