Simon Weinberger's bidding problem: AT AT54 AK765 J3
4 quick tricks, two tens and a good 5 card suit is a good reason to upgrade. one club.
Jack Hawthorne's bidding problem: QJ93 KQ975 K4 93
I have found the weak 2D call to be very useful. When LHO opponent does not have the values for a free bid he will often have the wrong shape for a negative double. The 2D call simply places him in an untenable position. Is that more valuable than the ...
Jack Hawthorne's bidding problem: QJ93 KQ975 K4 93
I don't consider this hand good enough to overcall one heart and then double for spades at a higher level. It certainly isn't good enough to double and then bid hearts so I simply double now and forever hold my tongue
Dick Vatter's bidding problem: KJ4 A83 KJ53 AK6
old school but with little downside and a large upside. The follow ups are equally natural and unlike systems need little discussion
Melanie Manfield's bidding problem: AK97652 T --- K9753
The club suit doesn't meet my standards for a jump to 4C so I show the diamond shortness and await developments.
Michael Hopkins's bidding problem: KJ973 A82 53 A53
Pass. I did open the bidding and therefore I have some defensive values should partner have an unexpected defensive value I expect him to double. otherwise I am content to allow them to play 5 of a m.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: Txxxx --- 9xxxx xxx
Pass. The first rule of holes.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: T AJ82 A98 AKJT2
pick your poison as both are distortions. I lean toward 2D as this is a likely continuation. 1C-(1H)-1S-(P)-2D-(P)2S 2N. The hand is now described within reason but the pitfall of pard jumping to 4S is avoided.
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: JT8532 K743 Q 97
it seems every time I bid spades on this hand my partner has hearts or ends up on opening lead with the KXX of spades. Preemption is usually less valuable when the opponents have a closely defined range.
Ron Steele's bidding problem: KQT KJ983 987 A9
Paul I agree with the assertion that you are not "obliged to pass 1NT". The problem is the width of the range. 6-12 is simply much too much for partner to handle. I have heard some, very good players, say that this has not created a problem. I assume this ...
