Problem 1

  • sheldon spier: 3S – this is definitely a Q bid. with 3 key cards, no fast arrival. can’t skip past a spade Q in case pard’s spades are lousy.
  • David Todd: 3S – Let the confusion begin
  • James Macdonnell: 4C – If partner replies 4 hearts (one ace) leave it there, but if partner has both of the missing aces, try for slam.

Problem 2

  • David Todd: 3N – Diamonds are not running, clubs are. How do two passed hands suddenly find the values for the three level?
  • James Macdonnell: Pass – Waiting

Problem 3

  • sheldon spier: 3D – need to invite. pd likely has 5 + D’s. Can’t bid NT without clubs stopped and want it forn pd’s side.
  • David Todd: 1N – I am not denying a hand this good, nothing else makes sense.

Problem 4

  • sheldon spier: 5H – making or sacking? not sure. Would like to bid 5C if understood at the 5 level that must mead H support
  • David Todd: 5H – The best way to defend 5S doubled.

Problem 5

  • David Todd: 2C – Easy one.
