Who Bid Too Much?
Danny, as to 1, it is categorized among bids that are disallowed. Opening Bids Disallowed Opening Bids 13. *** A non-Forcing 2-level opening bid in first or second seat that has a Range greater than 9 HCP and could show less than Average Strength. c. “Average Strength”: A hand that has ...
Who Bid Too Much?
Well, what we can't have are 2-way hands that are represented as opening or near opening bids. 2* Alert. 10-13 or weak and preemptive. That's disallowed.
Christopher Diamond's bidding problem: JT9 KJ9874 --- AK76
"Still not sure showing the doubleton honour is preferable to showing the diamond stopper. Yes you can back your way into 3NT but that begins to sound like there is no true stopper..Jxx...for example." That's certainly debatable. However, it's a trick I've known for a ...
Christopher Diamond's bidding problem: JT9 KJ9874 --- AK76
I have a sneaking suspicion that the reason I wasn't consulted is that apart from being good friends and bidding rivals, you knew in advance that you wouldn't like the answer. I fully understand that one wouldn't want to consult their nemesis when sitting in 2nd place ...
Christopher Diamond's bidding problem: JT9 KJ9874 --- AK76
I agree. I still think responder should remove 3NT. There will be many hands where partner chooses to bid 3NT rather than show a small doubleton heart and have it be very wrong. 4 might even be the right spot opposite a stiff A or Q. Should partner hold ...
Christopher Diamond's bidding problem: JT9 KJ9874 --- AK76
Craig, I too would bid 3 with the example hand, but only because we can still "back in" to 3NT. If the suit had been spades, I'm not sure I'd make the same choice. With a doubleton honor and a stopper, partner would be unable to bid ...
Christopher Diamond's bidding problem: JT9 KJ9874 --- AK76
"I don't think it is extremely unreasonable because 3D was a general force that might imply but not guarantee 5 plus hearts." This is a common flaw I see all too often. It is not up to the person who has Hx to wonder whether their partner has length ...
Christopher Diamond's bidding problem: JT9 KJ9874 --- AK76
Partner is endplayed into bidding 3NT with many hands where it's the wrong contract. It's not a bid they volunteered on their own. Following up with 4 can be either a trump setting slam try or a probe for the right strain with level to be decided ...

Craig, this pair didn't play support doubles. This is a continuation from another post. That may change things for you here. https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bidding-problem-2-uyo4cu0h0o/
Who Bid Too Much?
If they have no track record for this bid as a partnership, and this was a "one-off", then they get a free pass while being put on notice. If not, then it's worse than I thought.
