Craig Biddle's bidding problem: KJT865 AK2 973 8
I think the overcall and a rebid of 2 just about says it all. 7 losers assumes a fit also of which you have little guarantee - You will be lucky to find partner with 9x of spades given the bidding so far.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: KJT865 AK2 973 8
I think pass and 2 are the only 2 realistic options because of the number of losers/general strength of the hand. This is analogous to a 64 hand where you rebid the 6 card suit with weaker hands and bid 646 with extra strength hands.
Mike Ma's bidding problem: Qxxx x AKTxx AQx
Ben - I agree with the logic. Normal lead against 7 is a trump unless leader holds a sequence. If a trump is not led, the leader either has Q trumps or is trying to fool you. So finesse the club.
Itzik Ezra's lead problem: 943 T74 J63 J853
Patrick - With 3 and 4, he would likely have converted to 4 since they have a 5-3 fit. Spades is out and partner did not double 3 and from the arguments above, probably has 4+ hearts. So I led 4.
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: --- AQ4 KQJT753 A94
That was exactly what I was thinking was the best hand partner could have. If you double, what does partner do? Pass likely gives them 740. He is guessing otherwise. What if he bids 4 and it goes double. Are you rescuing to 5? I think not. The ...
Mark Bartusek's lead problem: 842 J2 QT73 T542
This looks familiar. I know I did not lead a . It was between and . I cannot find it in my old hand records but I think I led 8. If you are playing against a pair who would rebid 1NT unless he was at least partially ...
Thomas Berg's bidding problem: QJ974 QJ954 K8 6
With s being bid on your right, partner rates to be short in s and therefore to have some s. Double shows your strength and hearts. If you pass, I would expect the bidding to go 1C 1S P P, 2C. Then what do you do-bid 2? Of course ...
Andrew Sinclair's bidding problem: AT98765432 A A A
I like it but hope the opponents don't get in.
Jim Ritts's bidding problem: J982 96 Q986 865
If you are interested, it is from the Common game, Tuesday 8/7/18 Board 32. If you were East, would you do anything other than double?
Rowland Reeves's bidding problem: QJ AKT962 QJ9 K4
I am not willing to hear partner bid 2 after I double.
