Did S take advantage of a failed alert?
I asked North today ( Monday) what he was thinking. He figured S had a bergen raise so he bid 4 kickback, somehow in the next few bids, S responded incorrectly and N bid 7 which, while a poor contract, should have been made trumps are 2-2 and the ...
Did S take advantage of a failed alert?
having played a lot with North and playing his system which this pair does also, I know they do not play any 3nt serious/non-serious or some kind of cue bid. I did try to explain to South the ethical considerations and I think he did understand but my impression ...
Did S take advantage of a failed alert?
This partnership does not play strong jump shifts. I Know they play that 3 is an LR with shortness somewhere but I do not recall if they have any agreements about 3.

Winston Chang's bidding problem: KQJ953 2 J KQ532
who would 3 show a better hand its not a JS? 2 simply does not show the playing strength of this hand nor such a good suit. If it lives, we are much better placed and if it goes all pass we may be in the best spot
Winston Chang's bidding problem: AK875 J742 83 A4
My first inclination was to bid 3 but that seems so final. I guess dbl maybe tomorrow Pass
Colin Baker's bidding problem: K6532 T9654 --- KJT
Not vul no one has doubled
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: KQT952 KT2 Q A53
U kidding me? I guess this hand shows why I am not a star. Would NEVER occur to me to bid again.
Peter Hasenson's bidding problem: QJT9542 K4 KT 62
I hate this shape and I hate having outside values but with pard a passed hand I ask what else than 3? Maybe 4?
Craig Zastera's bidding problem: KJ643 4 A7432 62
not guessing at this level 3nt tends to end all auctions
