Elke Weber's bidding problem: K62 K4 K7 KQJT42
OK, switched my vote to 3 from 4.
Elke Weber's bidding problem: K62 K4 K7 KQJT42
What's the range and description of our "weak two" ? The vote here makes me think it's pretty light.
Tilman Seidel's bidding problem: KT54 K963 T76 A7
What notrump range are we playing? If 14-16 I have no qualms about passing. If 11-13 or such I'd probably better act, unless partner has a clear way to show the strong notrump. Would partner's double also be penalty?
Nicholas France's lead problem: 75 A76 873 AKJ42
As with most defensive hands, we face threats from long suits (spades and hearts) and ruffs. The auction suggests declarer is more likely short in clubs, and while partner rates to have four spades they are badly located. I'm going for our quick winners as well as taking a ...

Steve Moese's bidding problem: JT5 KT54 KJT4 74
I would think double would be pick a major. Are we planning to correct 3 to hearts? Or does "the book" treat double as stronger than 3?
Nicholas France's bidding problem: Q4 J865 2 AJT976
Upgrade the Q to K and I'd bid 4.
David Parsons's bidding problem: QJ3 Q75 KJ732 QJ
As I stated in the companion problem, I open all 12 counts which include an Ace. This is an easy pass. I feel much stronger about passing this one than opening the other.
David Parsons's bidding problem: A74 Q87 K8432 QJ
Close, but my policy is to open any 12 hcp hand which includes an Ace.
