Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
1NT or 1C
That's funny I am just the opposite. I like upgrading 17's to 1 of a minor and 19's to 2NT because they have more of those high cards that justify an upgrade, but I want a 5-cd suit as well. But I rarely upgrade a 14-count. Change ...
Queen of Trumps ask when playing RKCB 1430
The Club's Coffee-Housing
Maybe if we all waited 5 seconds before playing to every trick, this wouldn't be a problem.
ATB missed slam
Would west really know this? What if east is K85 KJ KT76 KJ53 or K85 KJ5 KT76 KJ3 Also, how does west find out about east's hand playing specific kings?
ATB missed slam
Is east good enough for a 3 bid?

If they bid specific kings over 5NT, west will have difficulty getting enough information from his partner. If east asks, it's 4NT 5 (1/4) 5 (Q ask) 6/7. 7 has pretty good chances, either the diamonds set up or if partner started ...
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: --- JT976 AT42 Q987
I don't think you're going to take a lot of tricks in clubs if they start drawing your trump. I don't think they're going to have an easy time with suits not breaking.
Stig Holmquist's bidding problem: AKxxxxx x AKxx x

Jan Lagerman's bidding problem: AKQJ KQ92 AKJ3 6

Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: KJ2 KJT4 T63 A87
I'm bidding 3 on the off chance partner responds 3NT. Of course, he could choose to bid 2NT over a double. But I will support with support. For all I know he has a huge hand with spades.
