Is this 3 club bid forcing or not forcing playing 2over1 using standard agreements
Funny, where I come from this is standard NON forcing. “All good hands start with double” Surely worth discussing. Good case can be made for dbl=kind of a 2nt bid or better so you can use 2nt as a bid that forces partner to bid 3cl to SO in ...

David, according to your earlier comment I was not supposed to know that he showed heart support and shortness in spades. If this is true, and I think it is, how could I alert 3 ? Am I missing something? Or is this just to difficult.

Sounds like nobody read what I had to say about all of this and it’s getting quit ridiculous. This is just not how bridge works. 2-2-2-...... what you EXPECT is 2 or 2NT and you are ready to alert this. Suddenly the CHO bids 3 ...

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED Love the discussion, here is the explanation. With this partner I changed the system to 2clubs and 2d both being artificial and strong. 2cl singlesuited or some balanced hands, 2d 2 suited or some balanced hands. Before this we always played a standard American 2cl opening WITH ...
What accomplishment earned this letter
In the Netherlands we have 2 systems, the firstis just your Total nummer of masterpoints, in other words, how old are you, and the second is your accomplishments over the last 4 years. It counts your best 5 results of the year and halve of your next 5 results. Last ...
Not your typical lead problem
In other words, I would NEVER lead a Diamond from a broken holding if partner doesn’t double.
