Should South find a bid with this hand?
Michael is quite correct. I did not mean to suggest that South should double at any point. I was just noting that the problem Michal is talking about here is one that might require some thought.
Should South find a bid with this hand?
I think there's legitimate room for debate about whether or not South should bid 2 at the first or second opportunity. Some experienced partnerships have agreements about how much defensive value a direct 2 would show here, and this hand might have too much. However, I don ...
Jump shifts into minors after a major opening bid
You also get some nice inferences from partner's failure to bid 3m directly in an auction like 1M-1NT-2M-3m. If you do play 1M-3m as invitational, it's a good idea to agree what responder's major support looks like. Can responder have xx? Hx?
Adam Gann's bidding problem: xx xx Qx AKQxxxx
I would agree with that assessment. And yes, it's a companion hand.
Adam Gann's bidding problem: Ax Ax KT9xxx Jxx
It wasn't bid at the table. Seems like it would have been a reasonable call, though.

Jacoby 2NT?
I generally use it as minors, but it comes up very rarely. I'm not a fan of forcing partner to the 3-level when I'm a passed hand, especially if partner opened in third seat.
Would you have opened and if so, what now?
Matchpoints or imps? Not sure it changes my answer, but it definitely changes how strongly I feel about the right answer.
Dahl and Oshlag Win Fast Pairs
Congratulations! I have the privilege of playing against Mark periodically, and he is always a model of gentlemanly comportment at the table.
