Bidding problems

The hands come from NZ’s Michael Ware who was clearly on a roll, being the one who took all the key actions.

Deal 1)

A92
QJ103
AQ105
AQ
KQJ8643 1075
52 AK87
6 K983
K83 72
964
J742
J109654

The actual auction:

West North East South
Pass Pass
3 Dble All Pass

This netted +1400 on less than optimum play by declarer (and yes, that was after ducking two spades). I guess one of the payouts for dodgy doubles is that sometimes declarer will go mad.

Deal 2)

Q
87432
K10972
K5
J97 10652
Q1065 A9
AJ654
J109843 Q6
AK843
KJ
Q83
A72

The actual auction:

West North East South
2 Double Pass
3 Pass Pass Double
Pass Pass 3 Double
3 Pass Pass Double
All Pass

Another +1400.

Deal 3)

AKJ43
KQJ109
Q
K4
97 106
A8643 752
J92 8654
1092 AQJ5
Q852
AK1073
8763

The actual auction:

West North East South
1
Pass 1 Pass 2
Pass 4NT Pass 5
Pass 5 Pass 6
All Pass

+980 after declarer received club, club, ruffed 3 hearts in dummy and pitched the other two on the diamonds.
