David Coles's bidding problem: T54 T65432 T92 8
Makes both. In the Common game (332 pairs), most common result was 110 N/S - E/W 43%. Next was -50 for those thar took the push to 4 - E/W 73%. 140 for E/W was 92%. Twice doubled for a top.

Small sample, but it seems obvious how this is going. My thoughts: unless the opponents are idiots (always a possibility), partner has 16/17 hcp. Why double? No club stopper. Partner has 2/3 clubs and 3/4 hearts. So both sides have 9/10 trumps. You have no wasted ...

Sorry. Fit showing jumps not part of our agreements.

I probably should have divided strong into GF and non-forcing...Sorry
David Coles's bidding problem: A985 AQJ6 AJ865 ---
Bob, I think this was a great analysis. I debated between passing and bidding 2. In retrospect I like your approach. I bid 2. Partner's hand: KJx 10xx Qxx 8xxx. Opponents can cash 6 clubs vs NT. Spades are QTxx onside, hearts Kx onside, diamonds Kx offside ...
