Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What is the purpose of attitude signaling?
Partner doesn't know for sure how good our hearts are, so for all they know their discard is helping us to plan the defence by saying where their high cards are. That said, it seems that we had a discard to make on the third round of diamonds before ...
Jacob Freeman's bidding problem: T AQxx AKJTx xxx
what would say a direct 3 from partner on the second round have shown rather than going via 2 - does the route chosen suggest weaker spades perhaps?
Jim Rasmussen's bidding problem: J A3 T7632 95432

Craig Biddle's bidding problem: KQ976 Q832 A75 4
does 4 also now show long clubs and deny 3 card spade support?
Mert Özdemir's bidding problem: xxx Txxx KQJxxx ---
what did partner's 4 show? Is it specifically both majors or could it be something else?
