Problem 1

  • Bob MacDonald: 4C – With 2 maybe 3 cards in the major suits NT is not the contract.
  • David Todd: 3N – Partner knows I have four card support for one of his minors.

Problem 2

  • Bob MacDonald: 3H – Spades might be better but I think I would show the 3 card support in case partner is 5-5. I don’t know that there is a game here. Partner will decide.

Problem 3

  • Bob MacDonald: Pass – No defence against spades and no guarantee of a fit with partner.

Problem 4

  • sandra taylor: 3S – a daring bid w’d be 3NT

Problem 5

  • Bob MacDonald: 3H – Minimum hand, unsuitable for NT assuming diamond bid was checkback showing 5 hearts
