Some good hands to bid from the Senior USA2 Semis
(Page of 5)

How would you handle this hand after partner opens a strong NT (14-16) and your RHO shows the majors?

Love how Wold and Passell managed it:

 

Apparently they play that 2 here is invitational with both minors.

Their auction worked better than the direct 3NT which got passed at the other table, presumably denying stoppers.

 

If you are interested in bidding some hands with your partner, the South hands are on the next page and the North hands on the page after and don't look at the results below

 

 

The choice of opening bid can make a big difference. The auction at the other table on this hand was Texas over a strong notrump. Martel and Feldman had better methods.

This one was a push but would you and your partner get there?
