Don't like 5 bid, South can have

Now you are doomed.

Therefore it should be pass on 5. N already made a move, has to respect partners weakest bid.

P.S. What is 2C-2D-3S?

1+3 seems the way to go.
I lean towards 2 bid rather than 3 as my 2nd option…

The only way to invite with 3c support is to go thru “longer” minor. Nothing to discuss here actually, added bidding for those who prefer to know if opponents have possibility to enter the bidding.

This was the full hand:

……….. A J 6
……….. A 6 4
……….. 8 7 5 3
……….. Q 10 4
52……………….Q87
Q109752……. KJ3
K102……………. Q94
J6 ……………… K753
……….. K 10 9 4 3
……….. 8
……….. A J 6
……….. A 9 8 2


I played on 2nd trick, took continuation and miss guessed suit, to go down. Interesting thing was that E didn't cover Q later on in the hand.

I would never start teaching bridge with natural system. First few steps only, i mean - clubs are clubs, spades are spades etc. After that, precision. Natural based, where 1 do show 4+ . Gone that way myself.

My experience playing 4 card Majors is limited, to say the least. Did partner denied xxx in in this sequence?
Lets assume he did, then Jxx-xx-QJx-AKxxx have bad chances in 6, but can be gold in 6. Therefore i am tempting to assume are better than . 6 is a lazy bid, as it is usually bad style to bid 6 anything over ace response, having all the key cards opposite unlimited partner. Perfect scenario could be 5+6 bidding sequence, question is, am i ready to risk it?.(Jx xx Qxx AKxxxx)
P.S. it is odd that 4NT is KC for , as with support, i should be able to bid 4+4NT, to establish as trumps, and leave current sequence as KC for . OTOH these kind of sequences need strong partnership agreements that over 4 partner will rarely bypass 4NT, etc.

After messing up a signal, they can differ which one of those two were in use in particular situation. ;)

You can squeeze East out of forth (or 5th or 6th).
2 –> Q (holds)
Cross to table, run J, now you can win if E has last honor left. I can leave precise math to you, but it seems, that, if Q holds, we have at least 74% road ahead of us.

South forgot to bid 2 on his first opportunity.
With this NT range it is advisable to show values when braking transfer.
