Forgot to say RHO shows out when you play two rounds of trumps after winning the Heart return. Sorry

I agree. My feelings are that who ever told these people to use a 1NT response to show 8-10hcps balanced doesn't know much about bidding. I like the 2 diamond response.

Thanks

Thanks, I think your approach makes more sense

What is your approach? It seems to me to use a 1NT response to show 8-10pts(I am not sure whether this is also supposed to show balanced hand) is a serious flaw in the system. Both times our partners make overtricks on the hands.

4NT shows 5-5 in minors with one of six keycards; 5 clubs shows 5-5 in minors with two of six keycards; 5 diamonds shows 5-5 in minors with 3 of six keycards. 4 hearts show clubs with slam interest–partner expected to respond keycards if interested in slam. 4 spades shows diamonds with slam interest–partner expected to respond keycards if interested in slam. A bid of 4 clubs shows a broken club suit with no interest in slam. A bid of 4 diamonds show a broken diamond suit with no interest in slam.

“Yes, in an experienced partnership, there could be an inference that there is a message (not via hesitation) in 6♣ suggesting a contract, and with ♦AQ probably.” This is an experienced partnership and the club hand must hold solid clubs sans the ace and the AQ of diamonds for the jump to six to make any sense.

Absent any discussion the jump to 4 Dias shows hearts and diamonds. Over 4 Hearts by partner I bid 4 spades. Over 5 clubs by partner I bid 5 Dias forcing over 5 Hearts by partner I bid 6 Diamonds telling partner I have solid diamonds. Partner should bid 7 diamonds.

How can you set trumps with a 4 club bid after supporting spades?

I don't understand the comment. The responding hand was KJX-VOID-AQX-KQJ109XX. Since partner didn't cuebid the Club ACE six clubs rated to be a good contract in a team game. The 6 Clubs bidder has to have the dia ACE, heart void, Spade King and solid clubs sans the ACE or the bid makes no sense. If partner doesn't have the club ACE, six Spades is not going to make on a dia lead unless the King is in the pocket.

Exactly-responder actually held DIA AQX. I agree that a 3 club bid would have made it easy for the responding hand to bid seven. Yes there are many other way that the hand could be bid, but if partner takes over after a 4 dia cue bid how would he ever know that he is facing a solid club suit. I agree that a 3 club bid would have made it easy for the responding hand to bid seven.

Close,how about 7Clubs solid sans ACE, heart void, ACE of diamonds(How could he bid six missing both the dia and club ACES),KJX Spades. Giving partner a choice of slams. He could have cue bid the dia ACE,but how would partner every know that he has a solid club suit without the ACE. Of course on the actual hand biding 4NT for keycards would have worked since partner had 3 ACES. But if he only had the heart and spade ACEs what now.

“Double then Pass is forcing.” Is this a typo? if you pass the opponents are playing 2H/2S. What do you do if the bid is 1NT-2H(transfer to Spades)-??

Thanks

I can't find anything in the literature about this. If you have a source please point me to it.

Thanks

Is double then a bid of 2NT the invitational bid? Also WHY HAS THIS NOT BEEN ADDRESSED BY THE EXPERT COMMUNITY? Is it because the experts don't use transfer overcalls? I appreciate your responses.

I agree the extra space seems advantageous to the NT. Why do some (even good players) use transfer overcalls?

I believe that 2H should be transfer to spades; double should be negative with 4 spades; pass followed by delayed double should be penalty. 1NT-2H (TRANSFER TO SPADES)- ??. I propose immediate double is negative showing 4 hearts; delayed double is again penalty. What do you do with 5 hearts and 6-7 HCPs; 10 HCPs and 5 hearts??
