Forcing or Not
Yes, the 4 bid confirms that the 4 bid was indeed a slam try as RF acknowledged above that it might not be.
What do you expect from partner?
Agree with that; but the real question is what you (I) should have to do it and what we shouldn't. Holding less than 4 hearts is suicidal; breaking directly after the transfer every time we hold 4+ hearts is just wrong, IMO.
Forcing or Not
A hearty agreement with both above here. If it wasn't a slam try you won't be in slam; if it was, you will.
5-5 Major Hand After Partner Opens 2NT
With ambitions, xfer to hearts and then bid 3. W/o interest, take route 3 here. We haven't cluttered up xfer to hearts then bidding 3s with some other toy, so it is easy for us.
Easy ATB, but how should the auction have gone?
Let's assume 4 means something other than what we have, and that 4 wouldn't help even if it didn't.
Bridgemates: Rules and Etiquette
If the OL is displayed, it is an illegal memory aid regardless of whether I pretend not to see it.
Bridgemates: Rules and Etiquette
If the opening lead is disabled, 'memory aid' is not a problem.
Bridgemates: Rules and Etiquette
1st Para: yes, except for 2nd Para (over-riding yes). The rest of the paragraphs are NO's.
Seating rights
There are reasons we enjoy playing against certain known pairs, and don't enjoy playing against others. We like playing against some pairs which rate to kick our butts more than others with which we get negative vibes. If I get to choose them for the 1st Quarter we start ...
what is this 3!D means ?
Context: Our 2 always produces 5 of them, and Opener can rebid 3 as a raise with just 3 of them.
