I have tried a thread on this before because basically, while I don't play much anymore I try to watch a lot of high level competition. What I have seen is that there simply aren't many unaccepted "pure" invitations. There are lots of "total trick mixed raises" that ...

Christopher Diamond's bidding problem: AJ9 K7 KQ98 QJ87

Christopher Diamond's bidding problem: AJ9 K7 KQ98 QJ87

What do you think?
Hendrik, as to Oren's comment. Maybe I'm completely wrong here but when you make "an offer to play" I would assume, as an opponent, that you are saying 1NT is a contract you make a decent percent of the time. Obviously, the given hand isn't that. Its ...
What do you think?
Oops, see my later rant. 1S was a great bid. :-)
