1nt routine–you have goodish 11 hcp and a misfit to start, game not so likely yet and slam still possible

this is pushy but the 7th club is killing me and partner can be heavy here. Ace of hearts is a huge card cause if we can win the opening lead we probably have 9 tricks in 3nt. Points schmoints, 9 tricks make 3nt.

Happy I'm not playing support X's, I might make the same bid if we were. Happy to show cards and see what partner does, my next bid should easy.

I prefer methods where 2h is a xfer to 2s and then I bid 3h to show great hand with diamonds and heart values. Second choice is 2h xfer followed by 2nt showing 4 diammonds and a 2nt bid. I prefer option 1..but with no methods I just go with 3d and hope partner doesn't think a long time and pass.

I like the methods where 2h xfers to 2s and then 3h shows heart values with Diamonds. Also you could choose to bid 2h xfer to 2s and then bid 2nt showing 4d and a 2nt bid. I prefer my first option but with no methods I think all I can do is bid 3d and pray for 3h where my hand becomes solid gold and I start with 4c.

Nasty, nasty hand.The 10 of clubs is the correct technical play but against very weak opponents a low club assuming they didnt lead low from qj isn't crazy. Either way if trick 1 goes bad for me I duck, win the presumed club return in dummy, cash the hearts and return to my hand with a club and run hearts and then presumably play a spade.Wheres Michael Rosenberg when I need him?

I bid 4h-I'm not gonna bid 3s hoping for 3nt when my partner didnt bid 2nt after the X.

I always hope that when I forget its takeout that Weinstein will pick the minor that shows his appropriate amount of key cards.

2h-cheapest bid, right on value, allows partner all the room he needs. If partner bids 3d I'll make the heavy pass, anything else and were off to the races.

i bid 3h. If partner does anything but bid 4c I will bid 6c. If partner bids 4c I will try again with 4d and if he shows any life I will bid 6c. If I get club signoffs over both my moves I will let him off the hook as partner can have qx,xxxxx,xx,qj10x and slam will be a lot to handle.

6h seems routine. A pitch, great trumps and sexy clubs means after a simple raise slam has to be cold or very good. If partner has an uncontrolled minor he would just qbid the minor he has and pass a signoff.(void, kqxxxxx, (akq,qjx)

I have found with this hand type its best to respond 1h and you only find clubs when partner can bid them first. That way you avoid 1d-2c-2nt-3h-3s which can be played as doubt about spade holding or 4s–either way can be a problem.

Jacek my boy-I am so sick and tired of losing to you. Going to Poland and spending a week with Gregg, Chris, Joyce, Steve and Liz and getting to meet your families was definitely a trip I'll never forget. Remind me, what happened? For years-whenever I see you the night before a tournament starts I always say hello and how are you and you always respond the same thing.. “wheres Steeeeeeeevie”? Your nervous excitement is so cute. Congrats on a great run. Enough already.

I remember playing Kenny in a Spingold a thousand years ago and his teammates were Paul Heitner and someone. We play Paul, my head is spinning as they are opening 3 card majors (some kind of Canary club) and they just never let us have an auction in peace. I was so relieved to play Kenny in the 2nd quarter till the 1st board when I got to 3nt with stiff Q of spades in my hand opposite a10xxx but of course Kenny binks out the K of spades from Kxx and destroys me….It was a well needed day off the next day. Kenny was quite a character, especially in his early days.

Response to Jojo–If you X with xx in diamonds you must have cards in hearts and less black high cards (kxxxx,aqx,xx,xxx)-still no guarantee with this X. If you had kqxxx,qxxx,xx,kx you don't know if your partner has 3 clubs or 7 clubs and you can't beat 7d as your cards are all in the black suits so you would pass 5d with xx and let your partner decide
