Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
what does 3 hearts mean
yes meant 2NT and have corrected it.
Opener's jump rebid of 3NT after a game forcing 2/1 response
Since I open 1NT with 5 card majors, the 3NT rebid here shows a hand not suitable to open 1NT originally but if you don't like to open 1NT with a 5 card major your way would seem to work.
Opener's jump rebid of 3NT after a game forcing 2/1 response
It seems you have not included a very popular choice of 15-17. With 18-19 you first rebid 2NT and then raise 3NT to 4NT.
What do you play over 1N (2!D), 1 Major?
Double is Stayman (You need a stayman bid) otherwise 2 level suit bids are weak, 3 level bids are game forcing. 2NT is lebensohl forcing 3. If after the forcing 3 you bid a major, that is invitational.
Steve Moese's bidding problem: AQ42 AKQJT3 Q 92
I agree and do we really believe we would bid 3 with 6 points. 3 level overcalls start at least at the opening bid level
Kevin O'Dea's bidding problem: Q62 AQJ87 QJT2 A
Of course how else will you learn about cue bids if you don't abuse them
Emanuel Evacic's bidding problem: AJT5 QT74 QT3 Q3
At the moment my problem is why North bid 1 instead of a double
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: KQ32 QT KQJT 543
Why I would want to distort my pattern and bid anything but 1 seems strange to me
Please, One More Time for this Theme
yes I have and this is a simple director call. You described your hand and partner said I don't want to be in game. Any bid you made is taking advantage of the UI.
David Corn's bidding problem: A32 A98 A72 AT63
I would think my first duty is show I have 3 hearts.
