For Those Who Play Good/Bad 2NT
I reckon 1N is quite a wide range not only 7-11 but suitable for diamonds with doubleton honour in clubs and control in spades would be enormous. Take AJxx, xxx, Qxxx, Kx opposite average 1D opener and partner's wide range 2C rebid means all sorts of contracts can be ...
Right Contract for the Right Player
Since we have a need for very good controls, if slam is good opener will be still interested despite xx in diamonds. 4 transfers would work best especially when he breaks without support. Now I follow up with the singleton heart and partner can judge the rest of his hand ...
Yet another what does this 2NT mean
Craig, indeed it is normal for each of those 2NTs to be natural. They cannot always be perfect shape or have two stoppers but strong balanced is too important to be neglected especially when the opponents have a fit.
ATB - missed thin game
Yes, I agree, and bidding 3D will allow partner to make the choice. I see only disadvantage in showing heart support once spades are raised so as East I want to make the only game try bid I have available.
5533 or 5542?
That is tricky since every time you ask your partner gets at least some UI. Why do you make this distinction?
What is this Double?
Then again, who says we can't make 4? It might be unlikely but there is no reason, these days, why partner doesn't have Kx, AQx, xx, KQJxxx to match my xx, Kxxxx, xxx, Axx. Partner is not going to get over-excited with less and will know when ...
System on after balancing 2NT
Why is best to avoid puppet after the 2N overcall? For simplicity we always keep it.Do you avoid it because the 1354 hands make a transfer into their suit?
Are we too advanced to get this one right?
I agree, opener has started to describe his hand and should avoid taking over without clear direction. It would be helpful if 3N was serious but if not he should clearly bid only 4. Responder will then realise that 7 is not a good contract and responder might ...
A DOUBLE PROBLEM
Partner has now forced, opposite what might be a min opener. I cant imagine hands without a spade control, so I bid 5N pick a slam! Ok we might miss the grand, but I am not sure that any other bid gets me there either.
