How do you play this 2NT bid?
You could be right, Marshall. I don't have a big enough sample space against good enough players to be sure. In any case, I the possibility of returning to a WK only 2NT structure is now in the back of my mind. Against that, there is something structurally sounds ...

How do you play this 2NT bid?
Hi Richard. I'm not sure Michael's arguments have wholesale convinced me, but his case, in particular re 3 as game interest, is fairly compelling. There was a good set of articles in The Bridge World early 1999 IIRC which dealt with various Lebensohl, Good/Bad 2NT etc ...
Assess the blame (12)
Hi Richard. I would be interested to hear from any Master Solvers Club class panelist (i.e. actual or their partners/teammates) if they wouldn't bid 3 on this hand in the auction given. Some might do so with misgivings, perhaps, but I reckon they would all do ...

Hi Kit. The first question is what 4 would have meant. I'm basically with you - I think it's diamonds or perhaps diamonds with a spade tolerance. For me, that substantively puts the Kickback question to bed (it doesn't exist, and a jump to 4NT would be ...

Hi Gerben. Anyone who plays DBL as T/O of is speaking my language here (see earlier reply). Ian C
suggested defence vs a unusual 2-way bid.
Hi David. I think I'm fairly much in agreement with you. I have a fairly simple rule - if DBL can possibly be take-out, it is (of the most likely, else the most important, possibility). Here, the only consideration is of what suit? As we don't have relative frequency ...
Play to make, or play to go (not too many) down?
No disagreement from me, Bernard. Ian C
Play to make, or play to go (not too many) down?
Hi Michael R. Agreed, but as Richard observes (and I commented in the team discussion) if you're playing to go down but minimise the loss, ducking the K seems the right start. As a matter of interest, after that start, do you think you would have found the two ...
