Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
what is the difference between XX and 2NT here
I'm looking for the 3NT option, concerned that 3 could wrong-side a 3NT contract.
Drew Cavalier's bidding problem: 2 AT96543 AKQ8 7
Did the opponents bid 5 over 4?
Draft ACBL Novice Chart - Request for Comments
Hmm, I routinely play Gerber in NT auctions and thus 4NT is quantitative invitational. In most of these partnerships the invitation is accepted by replying Blackwood aces just to double-check. This seems pretty straightforward and harmless to me, maybe I'm misunderstanding something.
After bidding Stayman, what is 3D?
With that agreement I expect the "diamonds-only" forcing hand to go through 2 transfer and then 3 cancelling the transfer. For me, the 2 call promised a 4-card major (alas the other one) along with the 5+ diamonds. GF for me.
After bidding Stayman, what is 3D?
Was there any agreement regarding what 1NT - 3 would show?
(1m) - 1NT - ( 2m) - ?

Bob Okker's bidding problem: --- T85 AKQJ874 AKT
3, expecting laughter and derision here but would welcome some thoughtful discussion. I can't think of a way to find out if 6 has a decent play, so I'm hoping pard can work out my fourth-seat preempt and find 3NT with major suit stoppers.
Appeal from Kansas City
NS were most definitely damaged, an alert was required. ACBL Alert Procedures states almost this exact example. "4. Cuebids Most cuebids are not Alertable. However, any cuebid which conveys a very unusual or unexpected meaning still requires an Alert. Example: 1♠-2 ...
