Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: 3 A65 A753 AKT76
my thoughts exactly
Jim Perkins's bidding problem: K974 A6 JT953 96
I seem to do very well allowing weak no trump bidders to play
Merijn Groenenboom's bidding problem: 8642 8743 532 KQ
with a five card spade suit and some values I would have bid over 2H. Now a jump to 4S should show a 4 card suit with some values.
Dick Vatter's bidding problem: J7 QJ63 A8753 74
and with a minimal club stopper don't you think 6S might be preferable as with X, JXXX, AJXXX, KX a raise to 4NT would certainly be best.
Dick Vatter's bidding problem: J7 QJ63 A8753 74
of course 4H shows slam interest (or better) but with no agreed suit why is it a cue bid? It seems to me that it is much better to show general strength with values that would approximate a raise to 4NT unless I bid on.
Dick Vatter's bidding problem: J7 QJ63 A8753 74
Yes I would bid hearts first as your given hand is not in the slam zone and I am looking for the cheapest game. I notice that your second example shows hearts and highlight weakness in clubs.
Dick Vatter's bidding problem: J7 QJ63 A8753 74
it seems to me that if we can agree that over 2S we would bid 3H with 5+ hearts and that 4H is now forcing then what other conclusion can you draw?
Dick Vatter's bidding problem: J7 QJ63 A8753 74
no
Dick Vatter's bidding problem: J7 QJ63 A8753 74
I am surprised that only I chose 4 hearts. That cannot be interpreted as a place to play but as a raise to 4NT with club weakness.

re-post Dick. Something is amiss
