Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Daryl Fisher's bidding problem: Q932 97 KQT2 JT6
In most of my partnerships, I'd have to pass, but I'd doubld if it were penalty.
Chris Derrick's lead problem: A864 J4 T42 K972
Anything but the HJ is a wild shot.
Evaluating the Quality of a Stratification
In the UK, this would be trivial, with NGS ratings for all of the players.
Kevin O'Dea's bidding problem: A73 AKQ QJ7 KQ74
I always correct with three spades on this auction, because responder might be quite unbalanced. In contrast, after a 1NT opening, I always pass 3NT with 4333. Tip for young players: After 1NT:transfer,accept:3NT , if opener starts to think then they have a 4333 shape.
1!H-1N; 2!H-2!S
It would be plausible to play 3S as a general try for hearts, producing a cuebidding auction, and still permitting 4m to be natural.
1!H-1N; 2!H-2!S
3055 is pretty precise. Why can't responder have more minor suit cards?
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: AK2 AKQ76 QJT4 5
Well, I'm not willing. Slam will be so easy opposite two keys I'm not risking the auction getting bogged down. With bad diamonds and a doubleton heart, he might not have bid 4D.
Sasha Cooper's bidding problem: JT6 K5 T83 AQ654
I get terrible results balancing with marginal hands and three cards in their suit.
Snowball in Hell
There was a grand slam in an ANOT final in Australia more than a decade ago which needed the trump suit of AKQ8xx opposite void to come in.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: AK2 AKQ76 QJT4 5
Seriously, RKC is easy. What more do we need to know?
