Jarek Wyganowski's bidding problem: AKT9 5 932 AKQT8
IMHO 2 is not a reverse here, as it is cheaper than 3.
Bingjie Wang's bidding problem: 854 JT82 K63 K74
I need to be declarer if partner has 2 cards as Nikos suggested. I could have some wasted Q or J. But instead I have 2 Kings and J10. This is more than my partner will expect, so 6.
Ruling fron Eastbourne

Tricky ruling
People tend to focus on one aspect of a problem and ignore another. In the real world, if everybody always judges a situation from all possible points of view, consensus would be reached far more often, and there would be no religion. Here South focused on opps' bidding and their ...
Karl Junk's bidding problem: K853 632 8754 96
1nt opening by North would have shown 15-17 balanced, therefore after 1 North shows 12-14 or 18-19 if it was a balanced hand. This time, it was 18 balanced.
