Striping a hand and forcing an expert player to ruff his partner's winner high or ruffing my loser high while I promoted my trumps in hand and dummy. When I was brand new to ACBL did a strip endplay in 3nt based off of auction and droping a stiff K to win bracket 2.

Raise to 2NT
It can't be 15-17 here's why: If partner has 6/7 you go down in 2nt. to show 15-16 balanced you'll have to decide weather if the hand is suit oriented and open 1M or bid 1d and hid your 5c major.
Shiang Chen's bidding problem: KQ32 Q AQ875 975
3h goes down 2 (they even had a 10 card fit) and 4s makes because they were 3-3. If S had her bid it would most likely be down 1.

Me 2, but this is a b game and the 2h bid was awful on a balanced hand with AKQxx of hearts and some random outside Q. Not exactly an expert game.
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: A K6 KQT2 QJT872
3 it's the only slam try I have left. All other bids look natural and misleading. It's a tad too good to just give up with 4h. Putting a lot of faith in partner with this bid. If partner is bad I'll just bid 4h and ...

Problem is what do you re-bid with 5 when you don't want to wrong side the contract?
Jean-Charles Allavena's bidding problem: AQJ5 KJ9876 4 53
What is 4d? I'm confused. I'm a simpleton and just bid 4h pass or correct.
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: T932 --- 765 KT8532
I wanted to bid 3 cause I'm crazy. But the I was like what do I do over 4h? So now I settle for 3c followed by 4s!!! ...sigh, long gone are my days of youth.
Selena Pepić's bidding problem: A762 T8 53 KQJT2
Jesh tough crowd. One step at a time;) Once at a regional I was still pretty new had very few MP's, but I was good for a new player. When my opponents mentioned HCP's I joked something like "What are high card points? I keep hearing about them ...
GöKay Akar's bidding problem: ATxxxx AJx AJx x
dang it so close!!! I remember a good player (John Adams) said he doubled with Axxxxx Axx Axx - and made a very happy Sylvia who converted. Then there was a hand with like KQxxxx KQxxx x x and doubled turned out to be the biggest winner and if you bid ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: Q43 AKJ96 932 A7
one problem with 3d is partner might fear clubs in 3nt. He's AT LEAST 6-4. our hand's not that great if there's a hole in the diamonds.
