Analysis by Craig Hemphill

Some folks take the Losing Trick Count too literally -- After a single raise, the admonition is simply to bid game with a five loser hand. Well..... is South's hand good enough to bid game? NO! One ace? Disjointed side honors? Questionable honors in three suits? Rethink that guideline and modify it to times when you have clearly working honors and perhaps not a 5422 hand, infamously less playable than 5431 patterns.

Make a game try in the Qxxx suit and honor thy partner's decision.
