5-5 Major Hand After Partner Opens 2NT
I'm not sure what's wrong with option 2. The spade suit looks an awful lot like a 4-card suit to me.
David Parsons's bidding problem: A83 852 AT754 63
If I couldn’t invite I’d try 3nt. I don’t get “pass.” Yes, I saw the form of scoring.
What do you do?
It may be nothing, but I feel like a director call is in order just so the opponents can have it explained to them that this is not the correct way to inquire about the auction.
Tracy Brines's bidding problem: --- 8754 6532 AQJ74
A week has passed. Let's hear the story.
Tracy Brines's bidding problem: --- 8754 6532 AQJ74
Yes, I know, vul at IMPs and all that, but vul at IMPS also means undertricks add up quickly. Even 2nt figures to be a challenge and 3nt might get smashed.
Tracy Brines's bidding problem: 7 AK9 AK432 AQ9x
It's really close. What pushes me to 6 is that partner didn't try for 3nt as they might with spade wastage. Also, partner's 1 over 1 figures to be less pushy than it might be over a 1 opener. Additionally, since my 3 ...
Mark Chen's bidding problem: K52 AQ4 A953 K53
Wish I could super-like Leo's comment (this one, not the one about not bidding the 1nt). I hate the 1nt as natural here, but if partner and I have agreed it, I'm bidding it here. If I'm not going to bid it with this hand I shouldn ...
Attitude or Count Signal?
You play obvious shift, correct? So the 2 just says, "I'd rather see spades continued than to see a diamond on the table." Or do you not play obv shift in this partnership?
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: AKT7 A4 QJ7652 9
Do you really want partner to do something else with: QJx, Kxx, AKx, XXXX? I'm not saying bidding on is a good idea - I probably wouldn't, but hanging this entirely on partner doesn't seem right.
Joel Wooldridge's bidding problem: 8 Q965 KT9xx 875
It seems like 3nt could salvage it. 3nt may just convince East that their partner is truly broke. As for West they may decide that partner's bidding is more distributionally based. We may buy it, undoubled. If doubled, we may actually have a chance at 4c. By then everyone ...
