IMO 3C shows 5-5 and not a minimum= min.15hp. D shows min.15 hp and either 2533 or 2524 or 3523.

IMO 2H is forcing for at least one round. Partner must not pass.:(:(

IMO North should bid 2S over Souths 2D.

Raptor is a terrific and very effective convention. I have won many imps playing Raptor and can not remember any bad results. And the frequency is around 4 times more often than the standard 15-17 NT overcall.

The problem is even more interesting if club KQ5 are in dummy ( S is declarer). Then it is more easy for E to duck with CA.

If CK holds when with N declaring I will try the hearts and if no J coming down I will play club to Q.

1. Asking. When you pass by a suit you have a stopper in the by passed suit. So if you bid 3NT here you have a spade stopper - and maybe a club stopper but not for sure. This is the rule I have with my regular partners. This rule is even better when clubs are our suit and trying for 3NT.

2. Both minors. If I have a heart raise I bid 3H.

When dummy has xx, xxx or xxxx - then we play Standard signals and not UDCA. So With J9x you just play the x.

You are right! The hand is from Geneva 1990 - and Garozzo won.

Anyone for the full deal? :):)

This was Souths hand:

5
K82
AK764
AQ76

What would you have bid with Souths hand?

IMO 3C,3D and 3H all are non forcing. Partner has forced you to 3 level and you can have down to 11p. Partners double show min.9+ so you can not be sure of game.

Any good ideas/suggestions? :)

PS.4H was an easy win and 3NT one down. We played 3NT. :(

Partner had:
-
7
AK10543
AK9762

The minors behaved so no problems in 7C.

Both teams bid 6C.

Thanks for your interest and comments.

Maybe partner has a hand with a singelton in major. How does he find out if you have the right major ace - if you only have one ace? It can often be a little difficult when you play cuebids and RKC like most of us do.;)

Does partner blast?

IMO he is showing a hand which can win 6C or 6D based on his information from your 2 bids. What kind of hand can that be? Then you must decide if your 2 aces and 2 minor queens is such a nice surprise for partner that you can bid 7C.

Partner must have maximum ( else he pass ) and now shows keycards 1 or 4 ( or 0 or 3? ). Anyway I bid 6sp. If partner has only 2 spades I expect him to bid 6NT cause I can not have 6+ spades.
