Todd Holes's bidding problem: KQ AKJT 2 KT9876
Steve, What if you do not have 2-way NMF or XYNT available? All you play is vanilla NMF.

I can think of a one word reply to this . . . but will refrain.
1NT response to 1M open while playing 2/1
1419. Having opened one of a major with 5-3-3-2 or 4=5=2=2, opener may pass a semiforcing one-notrump response with a hand deemed no stronger than . . . A. 12 high-card points [46] B. 13 high-card points [43] C. 14 high-card points [11] System addition: Having opened one of a ...
Bob Okker's bidding problem: AK AQJ653 A83 K5
I agree--"Just." And I, too, steer clear of 2 when others eagerly employ it. Unfortunately, that wasn't the problem presented to me, which I chose to pass on to BW. 3NT seems a viable option.

If playing "natural responding methods," with the requirement that a positive suit response includes say, 2 of the top 3 honors, then 2 is understandable. I agree that s are the agreed suit. With s, a simple 3 rebid would seem to be the simplest way to convey ...
Should we have bid the Grand? ATB
South failed to bid KeyCard = Mistake North bid KeyCard and did not follow thru with 5NT = Mistake East and West = No Mistakes
Bob Okker's bidding problem: AK8 AKQT8753 8 9
That's where I was going, yes . . . and the reason for this poll. Our auction proceeded 1 - 1 - 1 - 2 (artificial GF), then 3NT by opener. Not Fast-Arrival but showing "extras" by opener. Unsure of how to proceed, I jumped to 6, and we languished ...
