Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Mike Cassel's bidding problem: --- Q97643 653 AQT2
Emphatically worth a game force opposite a 1NT opening. (Note that game is still good if you remove one of the kings opposite)
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: AKJ9765 AQJ3 7 8
I don't understand the concept of this "forced bid". Is partner unable to consider other bids? What if he would raise a natural 2D overcall to six?
Dirty Talk
As director, I'd be adjusting to 6H making.
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: 64 Q3 KJ876 KJ43
1NT at my first turn, showing the values.
Ronald Kalf's bidding problem: J832 --- A75 K98764
Double, hoping that if it goes "all pass" we can actually beat it.
Ethical or not?
Not unless he clearly mis-spoke. Calling for one card, and reconsidering when it's clear that the ace would be a more successful choice, doesn't fly.
Ethical or not?
It's not your problem if he calls from dummy without looking at your card.
Normand Houle's bidding problem: Jx xx Qxx KQT9xx
Given that 3C is unanimous so far on the first round, this is further down some other road.
Normand Houle's bidding problem: KQJxxx xx AJx xx
Might have bid 2S if it wasn't forcing. No inclination to compete to the three level opposite a likely five card suit.
Robert Gellner's bidding problem: AKJ98642 AK K3 7
4C is better than 4S, but still a massive underbid.
