Paul I made it a bidding problem. What I gave were the main options within the system.
Finn Kolesnik's bidding problem: xx A9xx AQJT9 xx
Craig you are entitled to your opinion but you do need to explain to me why a strong majority is bidding 3 if my opinion here is so far off. It would look to me that you are in the minority. What I think you are doing wrong is ...

Common False Preference
As I recall you and I did a lot of simulations on this 15 years ago looking at the 5-7 hands. Our conclusions were it was so close it was just a matter of one's preference. With the 8+ hands it is right to go back to spades. For ...
