Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: --- J42 KQ KQJ87653
I held this hand and despite the 8 card suit passed it out. Felt like an insane problem, decided to post it here for a sanity check. What's even more hilarious is what happened with our teammates (this was a weird MP/BAM event so we also got a ...
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: --- J42 KQ KQJ87653
It did believe it or not :-). Hand 10: https://live.acbl.org/handrecords/1902102/02061400
Superbowl Homework
So it looks like East is either 4=4=2=3 or 3=4=2=4? I find it very unlikely that RHO would pitch their last spade, so I'm guessing 3424 (with stiff spade, stiff trump, doubleton club in the end position). Part that has me a bit ...
Nathan Finkle's bidding problem: AQT4 K AKQT92 73

Nathan Finkle's bidding problem: AQT4 K AKQT92 73
If partner's 3-5-1-4, I'm not confident enough the s are running. Possible 7 is laydown in the 4-3 with one ruff in the short hand, but I don't have a way to inquire if partner has the J. Also possible partner could be 2-5-1-5 and ...
Rate this auction
Did partner wink to tell us he has the K somewhere in this auction? I missed that bid.
Of relevance to issue from Honolulu
Partner should double with your A, so top it is.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: QJT752 Q62 3 632
And this is the one problem I was expecting would reveal a clear consensus lol.
Daniel Sonner's bidding problem: AQJ6 A8 AJ5 QJ73
My instincts are-- No J: 3. Trade QJ for K and lose J: 4 Losing the J but gaining an extra 10 somewhere (except s): I could go either way.
Update -- Grue and Levin Win Blue Ribbon Pairs
I'll be one of the 3,000 students at the game tomorrow!
