Problem 1

  • sheldon spier: Double – DSI, not penalty. Partner is probably shapely in C and S, but I’m not sure where to go. May have 3H

Problem 2

  • Jonathan Gage: Pass – Assuming exclusion
  • sheldon spier: Pass – Boxed in. Why X instead of 2C? 2C does not deny a major. Pd could not act over 3H..likely not too much there.

Problem 3

  • sheldon spier: Pass – Yikes. opening with weaker and weaker these days. Now I can’t properly express my hand. Unfortunately, this wont end the bidding, which is why we might need to bid on now.
  • Eleanor Calder: 2N – Kokish bid

Problem 4

  • sheldon spier: 2D – Q bid as 2C shows the pointed suits. I would have opened 1NT. Raise partner’s 2H to 3.

Problem 5

  • sheldon spier: 3S – Wow.. partner has a great S and D hand. Perhaps 4S is the right bid.
  • Eleanor Calder: Double – Responsive double
