Nicholas France's bidding problem: A3 KQ76 AQJ75 84
No, never really bought into that idea
1NT or 1C
I would disagree with the above comments that this would be better as a bidding problem. The author is well known for various bidding problems but here he wants to know more about how people think about the hand rather than what they actually bid. Here the choice is for ...
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: AQ2 8 K86 AKQ974
I think it is close between 3NT and 2. I chose 3NT since its matchpoints and partner is a passed hand
What Is Partner Showing?
Steven, have you never made a takeout double with only 3 spades here. Guess you have no bid when you are 3424 and 13 points.

Is N/S damaged?
So in a social game you are playing a very unusual system and then complain that poor East who is running for cover and didn't realize the redouble showed hearts made a bid that you at your own risk decided had to be 4 (when did a suit reply ...
Stig Holmquist's bidding problem: AKxxxxx x AKxx x
I am with Paul as I don't understand Stig's point or what his stats are suppose to mean. One can compute the expected number of spades partner can have and without any real calculation can know on average partner will have 2 spades and I think you underestimate ...
