Katherine Todd's bidding problem: A9542 T3 --- AJT872
Pass - failure to open 1 has torpedoed this hand.
Any sort of announcement etc. required?
We play this style, and it should be prealerted. Most folks don’t know the best defense when 4th seat has spades.
Assign the blame
OK - let’s say you’re playing a flavor of Precision and the auction proceeds: 1H(2D)4H(5D)X(P) Since the 4H bid could be made on either heart length and vapor, or up to a decent flat 12-13 with as few as 3hearts, it is impossible to ...
Peter Zhao's bidding problem: AQ843 Q5 AK AQ32
2N - 1 will miss potential 3N when partner with something like x Kxxx xxxx Qxxx passes...
Any sort of announcement etc. required?
More important to any of this is the fact that 1M-1N-2m is 100% NOT forcing in a strong club.
Assign the blame
You are correct, we aren't told what NS are playing for competitive Major suit raise system. Consequently, tell North that 3 does not show 5 hearts and a stiff. I would play: 2 = competitive, 3 = mixed, 4 = length and to play. Since North is apparently ...
Assign the blame
This is contingent on the meaning of the 3 bid. If it can be made on vapor and 5hearts, OR on something more significant (I play a strong club, where 3 and 4 have very different meanings), then the pull of the double distinguishes which.
Assign the blame
Sorry - don't agree. If opener has something like AQxx AKxxxx x Ax, I'd be hard-pressed to push onto slam after a "pre-emptive" 4 raise, whereas I'd look at the possibility of partner having A with a mixed-raise. The key is that opener is still not restricted ...
Assign the blame
As above and add that 3 is OK as well.
Assign the blame
I don't find the South double egregious, North can always pull it with zero defense. IMO, it only has upside. And I don't see system mentioned - 3 is my bid in 2/1, but 4 is my bid in any strong club system.
