Cue-bid = good raise of partner overcall
Correct. I meant 1-2-Pass-2NT. I think this makes more sense as natural rather than as a cue-bid.
Cue-bid = good raise of partner overcall
Thank you for all the feedback; it turned out to be an interesting question after all. One thing to take into account is that unless you play in a very established partnership (or if you are a professional) sometimes it is not easy to extend your agreements like "if they ...
Pen-out Double?
I think West can make a move after 2 before South is given a chance to bid 3. He is willing to compete to the three level and knows East is not completely broke, so he can invite on the way either by 3 or 3 ...
Gabriel Fractman's bidding problem: Q AJ9x Q8x KTxxx

A double-dummy puzzle: is the program right or wrong?
Thank you for the hints, I also already got the solution through some private message. Have to admit spent most of the flight back from Barcelona to Madrid thinking on the problem without success :). Still people may enjoy working through it! Nice to confirm that Sherlock Holmes was right.
