Ernie Retetagos: 5 NT. I expect partner's suits to be semisolid
Bill Holt 5S - pick a slam. I am too good to play at the 5 level. If partner bids 6d I will preference to 6H. 7 is possible but with the d&%#ed preempt I don't think it can be accurately bid. Fun problem!
Gail Carns 5C hoping partner bids 5D so I can bid 6H
Jim Bachelder: 5S, pick a slam. Opener has all of the spades and we have the rest of the deck. Its highly unlikely that partner has a minor and HEARTS, so, with 2/2 and clearly no preference, I'll let partner pick his trump suit just in case he's 6-5. Pard probably looks something like this: S - void, H - XX, D - KQJXXX, C - AQJXX
Jim Bossert : 5D. I prefer diamonds to clubs and partner doesn't hold hearts.
Joe Brady: 5S Partner isnít forcing me to the five level with jack-high hearts so they must have the minors. If he bids clubs, Iíll probably correct to diamonds. If he bids diamonds, I will correct to hearts.
Bruce Keidan: 5d. Good problem.
Asim Ulke: I bid 5 clubs. Not looking for magic. If partner corrects to 5D then I bid 6H.
Roni Gitchel Atkins: 5C - If partner corrects to 5D, I will then correct to 5H
Herb Sachs: 5C If my partner bids 5D, I will bid 6 hearts. I can be off two aces, no matter what. This is a guess.
Mary Carns 5D This gets me to the right suit 2 of 3 times: when he has minors, and when he has clubs+hearts. If he has the latter and rebids 5H, I bid 6D, which I presume is a cuebid
Ken Bergman.....6D.....assuming partner's NT shows the minors. I have alot more than partner could expect.
Barb Bergman: ....5D....this is very conservative, but I'm hoping partner will correct to 5H, at which point I'd bid 6H. I'm afraid of a VERY bad trump break and a spade lead will immediately pump partner's diamonds.
Florine Walters: 5NT, although would have preferred 5 Hearts, if forcing, and suggesting hearts if that is his second suit. Without that discussion, 5 NT, and again hoping partner bids cheapest suit, so if he has clubs & diamonds, I can correct to diamonds, as it should play better from my side. Partner is obviously void or has one spade. If one spade, left-hand opponent is void, and should get a more favorable lead. If partner does bid 6 diamonds over 5NT, it will take me one second to bid 6 hearts, which is certainly the contract I am hoping for.
