Dan Denison's bidding problem: --- 732 A932 KQJ942
If you systems allows an intermediate value 3 bid, just why didn't you do it on this hand and just what kind of hand would you need to use it?
Rebid 1NT More Often
Ed, Both from a practical bases and a double dummy basis, the 5-2 fit will play a lot better than 1NT. The hand with the known point count is exposed so there is more guessing by the defense as to what we hold. What I suggest is to keep track ...

I would have passed the original double. They are vul and we aren't. If they can make then partner probably had a questionable double
KnR count for QJT units.
Your trouble Stig is you really don't want to listen to others. The website I quoted for you is the most commonly used one. There is nothing wrong with Pavlicek's algorithm that I know of, I just haven't walk thru it as I have the algorithm I ...
KnR count for QJT units.
Basically there are three main things to count; High cards, shortness and suit quality. You have 4 Queens each worth one and the following adjustments: Subtract 0.25 for queen with no higher honor, Add 0.25 for each jack with a higher honor, and add 0.25 for ten ...
