A question on precision 1!D opening
Assuming I don't have a fit for partners response I rebid 1NT.. but I will raise partners major with 3 as the lesser of 2 evils and we use spiral raises to ask and find out how good that major suit raise is...

Partner's hand was Kxxxxx, xx, xxx, xx
Rick Gardner's bidding problem: A4 AKQ3 AK7 AKQJ
So no offense David but I am well aware of the nature of the game involving a partner... and I did pause and think through several lines of bidding before "bashing" 6NT down.. I still have not heard what I consider would be a line of bidding that is going ...

Best Defenses against Strong One Club opening bids
We play the following: 1D, 1H, 1S natural.. 1NT = Clubs.. 2C is black suits, 2D red suits, 2H C and H, 2S D and S, 2NT mm and X MM
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: 93 J982 AKJ4 T42
