Tomislav šAšEk's bidding problem: AQx Ax AK QJT987
(a) In light of my remarks at the very outset of this thread, I'm somewhat surprised that you assumed I would rebid 2N, since that auction is almost as slam-icidal as a 2N opener. The whole point of opening 2C is to get to slam when possible, and the ...

(1) We can easily have a slam facing a passed hand, and not even a maximum PH. (2) Quite generally, the opening bid of 2N is quite notorious for being the biggest self-inflicted slam-killer in the bidding box. (3) 1C is rarely if ever going to get us to slam ...
