You can still make without finesse if hearts are 4-2 as long the spade make 5 tricks or am I wrong?

Lets say he has something like K1098x-J2-23-Q643 or alike. Don t you give up a lot if those hands can t bid 2?

Do you reach bad 3-3 -fits often? Or 4-2 Heart-fits?

Do you expect partner to pass with a 5-card suit?

I think in Europe you would expect double as support double (without discussion).
So if you pass 2, you usually have no -support, not a good hand with minors or a strong balanced hand. I think partner should not always double with weak hands as we can t really have good hands.

I agree that 2 will be passed quite often, but actually there is no fit. Are there many hands that make a game when partner has 9-10 HCP?

That sounds easy to me. I bid 3.

I like your analyse, John. How would your partner bid a hand missing the 10 of clubs?

Barry, I have followed the comments for a long time. I can t let this one stand without response.
I posted all the information that was given to the TD. The pair never gave a system card to the TD, but the TD knows that they play Blue Club. I can t see why the question is suggesting a specific answer.

I am not emotional in that case but I found it interesting what is correct in such cases.
I understand your point about cooperative cuebidding, but here it seems that the player wanted to do more but couldn t figure out the 5D bid. So he thought for a while and bid 5H.

You can easily construct hands that fit the bidding with 2 diamond loosers or a heart and a diamond.

I agree that in cooperative cuebidding sequences you should allow normal bids, but probably only when both players have bid out their hands correct so far!

The system used is indeed Blue Club. But not used at world class level in this case.

The rest of the auction was quite quick, the 5H-call took about 1 minute or more.

What would you do if everyone at the stage has played the same boards and you have no other players available?

If the meaning of the bid is explained as asking, then its definately no psyche.
To try to mislead opponents is no criteria for a psyche or would a preempt be a psyche?
For me the discussion was hard to understand as in Europe 2NT has to be alerted anyway. (conventional)
That would make life easy.
Roger, hands like this happen. Sometimes they get you, but it looks like that 2S-3S would have done the same job.

I usually played 1 as showing 3s.
But as the people above I think that you should put it into one of the sequences. You have 1 and 2,2 available. Use one of those. ;)

Partner has forgotten the system, everything else doesnt make any sense.
But it depends on the country and the players playing. I the US and GB it seems that many people play regular stayman. In Austria nearly none but beginners.
So without any discussion I would assume puppet and I have not seen someone making a mistake here.
