Donald Lurie's bidding problem: 6 KJ52 KQJ2 8632
3 is not mini.
!S Jx !H AKxx !D AKxxx !C xx
I bet most are because people thought it should be a bidding problem. However, there are often people that don't want to really vote, but want to see who voted what.
What has partner got?
4 simply doesn't exist. It didn't exist before and it still doesn't exist, after partner bid it.
Jim Rasmussen's bidding problem: AQ754 Q3 AT5 AT6
Though I agree in principle, this is a hand on the edge. If you count the Q you can say it's too strong, if you don't in no way is it too strong. I don't count it.
Club level ruling . what do you think?
When someone with the S hand bids 3NT when his partner has promised 6, it means that he's capable of ANYTHING. I don't think it's important to know if this is because he's just high or has some other obscure problem. Though I would not change ...
Reopening double after 1N (strong)
Other: different artificial meaning than in direct. My direct is "Wolsey", my balancing is "DONT".

To bid or not to bid?
Someone said that partner promised additional values. He did not, unless you don't play negative doubles. Partner may not even have 3 card support, though he tends to have. What would he do with KQxxx,Ax,xx,Kxxx? or AJxxx,AJ,xx,Qxxx? You might convince me that partner ...
Floyd McWilliams's bidding problem: KT2 Q875 AQJ5 63
I have a feeling I was misunderstood. When I said I'll often have 3 hearts I said as opener, the guy that bid 2. As responder I'll simply never have fewer than 4.
Floyd McWilliams's bidding problem: KT2 Q875 AQJ5 63
As opener, I would quite often have 3 hearts in this sequence. 3NT could easily be our best contract.
