Problem 1

  • bill birney: 1S – Fourth-suit forcing. Partner’s next bid will reveal the universe.
  • Alison Campbell: 2D – seems to be a choice between 1 NT and 2 D. I should have 6 diamonds for this bid, but the quality is good and 1N could be a disaster with no spade stoppers

  • Nazmudin Rayani: 3N – P bids ♠️♥️I’ve ♦️ 10pts 3N
