Rich Newell's bidding problem: AKJ74 74 J63 876
2NT is definitely a relay to 3C preparing to land in a contract short of game. After 1D 1S 2H I figured: 2S weak and to play 2N relay to 3C, dropping partner short of game 3C 4th suit forcing 3S Forcing with six spades all other bids forcing but ...
What does 4!C mean?
I play negative doubles after 1NT 3X and 2N 3X. (No doubt some many do also after 1N 2X) There is a good chance partner will come back with 3 after which you can bid 4NT, or 3NT followed by 4 gerber. Even though I don't have ...

I would expect XX to show extras. Seems either you or partner should figure to pull 1X before it gets passed out.

Hanoi Rondón's bidding problem: 7 AKJT732 5 J764
Are you allowed to pscyhe a 1NT opening, what with all the rules about it (no stiff below Q, balanced)?
Meaning of 4C
I'm guessing "Meckwell", "Michaels", and "Cappelletti" aren't words either, according to your dictionary.
Rich Newell's bidding problem: AQJT97 --- A AK9543
I bid 6 which makes but after pass pass Dr. John Gustafson bid 7 with 11 red cards and no aces or kings, and held us to +500. I was just curious how many people would bid 5NT but with no chance to bid either of my suits ...
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
There is an article a few years old on the ACBL website stating a 2C opener can be made on any hand that can reasonably be expected to game with almost no help from partner. I can't find it right now, but this example definitely would not qualify. We ...
