Richard Lawson's bidding problem: 9643 --- KQT3 AQ762
I thought style was irrelevant. Since partner jumped to 3NT, they clearly have game-going values and would have bid 1D with four diamonds and four spades.
How do you play 6!C
Would you and Jean be able to get to 6C after a 1D opening? After 1D - 1H would you rebid 1NT or 2C?
Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: KQ53 K T9752 QJ4
I created a followup poll that assumes you voted for 4D:

I completely agree with what you said in any other context. A human, though, holding Q9x of trumps against 7D and seeing the dummy come down with T8xx, knows that the grand is going to fail. Opponents have clearly overbid and you're about to get a terrific matchpoint score ...

Thanks Jeff!
My NABC Online Practice Tourney Day 2 - "Up The Middle"
Y'know, I missed that completely about board 3. With trumps 2-1 it's just a matter of giving up a heart. Thanks, I'll edit my analysis.
My NABC Online Practice Tourney Day 1 - "The Wild Way"
I would have gotten a very good score. However, I had no idea his stiff was the KS. If it had been the KH instead, I would have made 3NT easily. It's an example of the kind of poor decisions the robot makes. Most people don't show singleton ...
