Michael Xu's bidding problem: KJxx AJxxx AK xx

Michael Kopera's bidding problem: K83 J93 J KQJT72
Thx, all. Nobody likes to sell to the 2 level, but I don't see any reason to think there a fit*. At the table, this hand doubled, the other hand found the defense difficult insofar as the doubler didn't have even one 4-card major suit. Double got more ...
