Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Is this psyche legal?
If we play strong NT, then a simple Stayman will just be OK. They'll have a hard time to bid anything.
ATB - we pushed them to slam. Again.
If east is afraid of 6 (he should), then 3 is better, south can rarely bid more than 4. Pass may be even better.
For mini-NT players
we play it with strong club: NV/V 1-2: 1N = (9)10-12, 1 includes 13-15 BAL, 1 16+ NV/V 3rd: 1N = 10-14, but you can open 1 if you feel like other: 1 includes 11-14 BAL, 1N = 15-17, 1 is 18+ when BAL
Please comment our bidding
You are right, but let's face it, nowadays most 4M opener don't have 8 tricks in hand, not even when vulnerable. Anyway, I have no problem opening 1, I'd probably choose it too, but 4 is a possibility.
Please comment our bidding
North might open 4. Given 1... - 2 is OK (however i'd worry a bit about fit if opener bids 2) - 3 is perfect IMHO. Very probably South should pass 3.
And now for something completely different..Not!
after 4-5 clicks I could read it without paying
(1!S) - X - (2!S) - X
We play Lebensohl in this situation (2N = weakish competitive bid in a suit etc), thus X is strength without one long suit, very probably 2 places to play
1!h-2!s and 1!s-3!h to show 3-card limit raise in opener’s major?
We played like this: (I heard other variations too) 1M - 2: (a) INV with 3+ support (mostly 3-cards if you play Bergen) (b) GF with (c) GF BAL hand Rest of the responses are as in usual 2/1, 2 showing 5+ suit, 1NT is semiforcing. Opener ...
3!s Response to 2NT Opening: Minor Suit Stayman or Relay to 3NT?
2N - 4, I guess
3!s Response to 2NT Opening: Minor Suit Stayman or Relay to 3NT?
both minors, but not strict minor stayman. Opener bids her 4-card minor with a (slam) suitable hand, but is not obliged to do so if 3NT looks better.
