Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
This is why when I'm NV I make the 3m bid often. It's very hard for opener's side to deal with.
Director question
Note for the next declarer: Please play the first round of trump before claiming.
ATB - Undoubled contract
Kit - Note that I liked this comment and I was the one sitting North. I'm still not quite sure why I didn't re-open probably with a double.
ATB - Undoubled contract
Yes I was at the table and I think the OP got this detail wrong. It probably would not change anyone's response though.
ATB - Undoubled contract
FWIW I think 2 showed and a Major.
How to play 3NT at Matchpoints
I was declarer and ran the 8 losing to the Q. South held K10xx so I made the contract but I wasn't sure what the right play is. My thinking is that N has shown 5 spades and 3 hearts, and presumable has the A as well as two ...
How to play 3NT at Matchpoints
How did I miss that? South bit 2 over 2. Diagram has been fixed.
How to play 3NT at Matchpoints
As far as overtricks, it looks like N did open a light hand, so I imagine the field will be in a H partial after West opens a normal 15-17 NT. Thus overtricks won't come into play.
How to play 3NT at Matchpoints
True, but South did make some noise at his second turn, so he has to have something, which leaves N with a light opener.
Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: AQ98 J QT96543 2
The way I remember the hand, you have 13 tops on any lead in NT.
