I agree with David. How I played is much more important to me than how we did, which is often out of my control.

If you do not want to try to be the best you can be at whatever you are doing, why bother? Obviously we do some things for fun, but like miniature golf, bowling or whatever, if I did not want to get better I would not do it.

Most likely only 3 's. If invitational values, would not have doubled with 2 or less.

Leading this suit is safe, but if you have something that looks better, go ahead.

Sorry Lynn, it was in response to Richards's statement that 3NT should be easy. The 1NT was much better than it could have been, but still impossible on the layout to make 3.

P.S. - When South bid 3 he had no ideal North was anywhere near as weak and/or distributional as they were. Maybe it was East that had a weak Michaels call.

David, when the double of 3 got passed by South, West asked the meaning of 3 and was informed it was natural. They then decided to pass as well.

Sorry, pard was J97, QJ954, 982, Q3. Diamonds were 4-1 so we lost 4 clubs, 1 diamond and, with no entry to their hand to take the heart hook, a heart - down 2,

Cornelia, I did not mean it nasty, but would you really require 18HCP to open the bidding? (9 in 's, 4 in 's, 2 in 's and 3 in 's? We are talking about opening 1 of a suit here. If so, you must not bid very often.

Did you mean to post that on April Fool's Day?

Agree. Without true heart support South must have other calls available.

Are we playing Puppet over 2NT? Might affect my answer.

Looks like an obvious opener regardless of what the missing spade is.

My partners and I play a double of 4 is penalty, with 4NT being a general takeout.

Just return partner's lead. East knows you probably cannot overuff dummy on a continuation, and dummy's 's make the return easy.

In that case, I see nothing wrong with 2. Maybe pard can bid 2 or 2, then I can suggest with 2NT.

Yes and that is the appropriate section for it. Both columns are excellent and readers need to know how valuable “table presence” is to having a successful game. Bridge is more than a rote following of calls.

Personally, I really liked the idea of having only one bidding box and passing it around. Eliminates insufficient bids and reviews. Only problem would be getting the cards back in the box in order.

Then that has to be more descriptive than dbl.
