Hi! I wondered if you knew what #3 was made out of. I have seen them advertised as aluminum, however, I sold one based on that and the buyer said it could not be aluminum because a magnet sticks to them. Anyway of finding out the material? Thanks for any help

MP question- 1D:1H and opener's turn to bid with 0-3-6-4 hand and 11 HCP concentrated in the minors. If the goal is to avoid NT with 0 spades, will spiral work better? i.e. 1D:1H:2H rather than 1D:1H:2C?

If people choose to open this 2N with this 4441 shape because their partnership agreement is the first suit bid is always longer than the second, then they will expect partner to have at least 5 diamonds. Therefore I chose to show both hands so the answers could reflect a hand which could have this shape.

I have made all the necessary changes and would appreciate your opinion. Also, that was not my post with the clubs and diamonds switched.

the reason is without knowing what one's opening bid will be, the subsequent bids make no sense. For those who open 2N, the follow up bids will be quite different and it is difficult to ascertain the sequence with just one bid shown

If partner has 4 diamonds, a diamond slam is possible. How does responder know you have this 21 hcp hand needing only 2 cover cards after the 3nt
by bid?

I put the problem into Jack software, he suggests opening with 1s in third seat and then partner bidding at this point, 4s rather than x on the hand. The auction continues and N/W either bid 5c (which makes) or passes 4s not doubled. Distributional hands often make, so double is dangerous

I put the hand into Jack and he suggested: p-p-1s-2c then 4s-5c-p-p

Ty…do you allow a 4 level minor signoff after a reverse? I keep hearing, once a reverse is bid, 3N, 4M or 5m has to be reached. I don't understand that with the minimum values of 16 hcp of reverse bid and 8 hcp from responder as possible, not enough for the 5 level and not adequate for 3N if both have shortage in the same suit.

Ty Hendrik, One of my partners taught me to reverse on a 5 loser or better hand, otherwise, I would not have reversed for the same reasons you mentioned. What are your thoughts about reversing on shape?
