Your reasons for negative double sound ok but? Which bid tells more about about shape and points, 3N or NegX? I'm lean towards 3N on both counts. I also that it put us in game immediately and tells my partner I have two good D stoppers. If he has a more shapely spade hand he can still go to four spades or slam inquiring.

I'm an immediate player, 195MPs, and want to play better. Thank you for making the Common Game available. I really study your comments and learn from them.

My error in posting. I incorrectly posted N hand while we had a question about E response. Please go to my reposted bidding problem.

May I claim a mechanical error? I have agreed to bid 4 not 4.

I appreciate all the comments and will review these with my partner. It does seem that really should find out more before going to Ace asking.

Top board in our section at 1440. Three pairs went down at 7N most others pairs found and made 6H. One pair only bid 4H and made 6.

Let me try this:


Board 20
West Deals
Both Vul

North
T3
AJT98652
K94
Void


South
AKQ
K
AQ
AQ87532

In spite of my rush to 4N we got to 6N and made it. After capturing the Spade lead I played the K to A and then led to force out the Q. East led back capyured by NK. Next 12 tricks are ours.

Ok, most got the problem, that didn't bid slowly to find out what my partner hand contained. It was 94,
AJT98652,
MK94


We made 6N by playing the A taking dummy's K. My only loser was the Q. We were lucky.

Thank you for your comments. I learned a lot from them. Don't assume. Slow down, communicate, make good decisions.
