Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: T62 AJ52 A AJT92
I must admit that I'm surprised to see so many passes. But partner can have quite a modest hand and yet they might be making 3 while we're making 4 or 5 clubs. What would you want partner to do with: Axx, x, xxxxx, Kxxx? 4 ...
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: KQ3 83 KJ94 K976
Wayne, it's actually nice to be able to use the XX and THEN either 2 or 3 to show the limit OR forcing spade raise - but with 3 spades specifically. IF you don't have a fit for partner, then once he passes a bid after your ...
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: AT864 A4 9 97652
Craig, most I know, if they have a hand "too weak to bid 2" will first bid 1NT and then return to 2. While I might have 3 on this auction, IF I do then partner should assume I have 5 spades. If I did not, then ...
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: KQ3 83 KJ94 K976
Wayne - many of us play that 2NT IS limit or better - but guarantees 4+ spades. That one lacking spade in the hand could mean big trouble for us if partner makes the wrong decision based upon incorrect data.
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: KQ3 83 KJ94 K976
Shawn, I think that 3 simply affords more flexibility. Possible partner has a big hand and we might have slam, but we need to investigate to find out. Perhaps if partner knows you have a 3 card limit raise, they might bid 3NT. 4 limits our opportunities.

Maybe - but - here's hoping, David!
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: KQ984 AKQ82 KJ 2
Of course, at the club, some would double and then immediately write down the contract in their scorecard prior to any other calls being made :)
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: KQ3 83 KJ94 K976
I play that 2 after my xx would be a limit raise with 3. Ergo, 3 is forcing.
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: AT864 A4 9 97652
I think it is super close between 2 and 2. Agree that 2 MIGHT be the best spot - but - no way to play there. If I bid 2, and partner has 3, he might correct.

Nikos; what would 3 be?
