I was messing around doing 4 board challenges when these two hands came up (in the same challenge!). I had no problem getting to grand when I was south, but the GIB's bidding leaves a lot to be desired. The auction gets duplicated with both basic and advanced bots from what I can see.



I understand it may be hard to teach the GIB the importance of doing RKCB for diamonds here when lacking a third round control ask, but bidding 5NT seems futile, not like the K is likely to help unless it was thinking of bidding 6NT which I doubt.



This one is just painful. Partner shows club support and a non-minimum and South doesn't even try for slam?

Both hands, I simply launched into RKCB (for diamonds on the former) which enabled easy grands to be bid (though OK 6C on the latter might not be 100% cold opposite 1KC, but should be decent)

Precisely, the auction at my table was 1H-2D-3D-4NT-5S-7D.
