Problem 1

  • Gord McOrmond: 3C – LTC of 5. Reversing might open up a can of worms.
  • Catherine Mustafa: 2D – You want to hear more from responder and no stopper in spades.

Problem 2

  • Gord McOrmond: 1N – Nice to have extras when I only have one stopper

Problem 3

  • Gord McOrmond: 2S – Don’t like the vibes (on a bidding challenge). NV and East is sitting over our spade honours.

Problem 4

  • Gord McOrmond: 3D – I am willing to possible give up on a club cuebid, to look for grand slam. 2A and the DK.
  • dick vission: 3H – splinter

Problem 5

  • Duncan Smith: 2N – I expect a total score of about 225.
  • Gord McOrmond: Pass – 3S P P, back to me?
  • Catherine Mustafa: Double – Double allows for partner to bid a stopper in clubs or find a fit in D’s or H’s.
  • Bob MacDonald: Double – If partner bids 3c, correct to 3d
