I simply wanted to get it right. I wasn't expecting passers to come out and bid now.

5 - the value bid. I am not convinced new suits are necessarily cuebids here.

That is a good point. In general it gives opps more bidding options.

Don't know what I am doing wrong. I put in the auction twice but it didn't take. The auction was Pass by Partner, 4D Namyats to you.

I am going to repost with a slightly different auction.

There is nothing interesting to report. No UI. Somebody chose to bid 4H directly over 3S and hit the jackpot. I thought it was clear to act over 3S (not necessarily with 4H but double would have hit the same jackpot). Obviously BW suggests it is not clear.

I think 4NT is clear. Double is basically takeout and I have two places to play with values.

A similar announcement to this one will appear several times in the Daily Bulletin. There will be notices in playing areas and at some points of (entry) sale.

I think this is worth 2S even over a balancing double.

I would be happy to have any/all of them. But for best results I think the “Bobby Fisher” is the lowest risk. He/she has proven that he/she can excel at the kind of problem solving required of gamers and can do so in live competition.

Contract should be changed to THREE hearts - the “re-transfer” South surely would have made without the UI.

I pulled to 3C but I certainly think pass is a logical alternative. I don't think it's that close but close enough that I did consider it. So if a break in tempo is determined (however long as to be a break) I would require a pass.

Hi Christian - congratulations for discovering Bridge - a wonderful way to pass time and keep your mind sharp! How many players do you have? If you have at least 8, have you considered duplicate? I am sure people here (me included) would help you with supplies.

Partner has made a takeout double. Why would I bid a 3 card suit in preference to a decent 5 card suit. If I had only 4 clubs I might well choose 3 Hearts on QJX. But I can't see it here.
