Bridge is not an exciting game if we will pass with a 5-5, knowing 9 card fit :)

Thanks for the comments.
Actual Layout was like that:

………xx………
………Q9xx…….
………Q9x……..
………KJ8x…….
—-…………KTxx
AJxx…………K8xx
AKxx…………JTx.
A9xxx………..QT..
……..AQJxxxx…..
……..T………..
……..xxx………
……..xx……….

It is hard to make 3nt and 4 (Although both games are not bad )
3 was -1.

I asked same type but different version of this problem about 3 months ago. http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bidding-problem-926/

Raising a splinter should show either the ace in that suit or sth like xxx but not Kxx. Anyway, nothing wrong with 4nt

I could accept 4 call on the previous round but now it is not my style. My partner can bid it with xxx hearts, but now I expect him a trump trick and in that case 4 may easily go down.

I think partner had 3 cards heart, with 0-5 points, but garbage points. It is clear that he doesnt have the ACE. 5 is not safe against the XXX XXX QJxx Kxx. So I pass then discuss what kind of hand I should expect from that kinda auction.

I think I have nothing more than vulnerable previous 3 call. Maybe next time I can show my spade shortness. ( Actually without singleton spade, this soft hand with 4 cards club is not worth a raise)

I bid 3, pure natural. If partner backs to 3 then I will continue with 3

If I bid 3NT here, partner may not have a courage to balance again.

Thanks for comments, on the actual hand partner had KJxx AQxxx Kxxx – and 3 will be made. 3nt will go down 1 or 2. And the 3 bidders will get the prize.

Vulnerability and scoring is so favorable that I vote for double. If one of the conditions changed ,I mean Mp=>Imp or Non-Vul => Vul , I would pass.

If opp. opened 2 and my hand was Q8xxx xx KT9 Axx this would be a harder question but now we're risking only -180 here.

I really don't need these nice spots on diamond. Opening is clear-cut for me.

If you take my spots on dia and ALSO jack of spades then I would pass.

with 6-card spades we can take all 1-level room of opponents so passing shouldn't be a winning auction.

I am asking what would you do if spades were hearts ?
I mean “ Ax xxxxxx KJx xx ” do you still think passing is out of the question ?

Opening weak-2 in that vulnerability may be very destructive. Something like x xx QJTxxx Jxxx is okay for me. So partner may pass having 15-16 HCP with singleton diamond in that case we can be cold for any game. Make one of the kings => K then I would open 1. I am a junior, I don't like pass but in this question I would pass :)
