North had 5 clubs and the jack of spades. Thats how I was able to make 6 on a club lead.

1370 got us 66% of mps in the common game, so a bit unlucky in our field.

Played 8 times (E/W sitout). 6NT +1 5 times and making 6 twice, then us! lol

My thinking was if partner bid 6, I would convert to NT. Over 6, I wasn’t so sure it wasn’t the right spot.

North has 5 clubs, south has both major kings. Club lead, which I got, kills squeeze possibilities in diamonds and NT.

What does 4 accomplish? You have the hand that needs to take control. If partner bids 5 you have no idea if you belong in 5, 6, or 7. 4NT should b kcb for .

I like 2. If partner raises he should have 5 spades. If not you get more info than you would with a jump to 3

How can 4 be non-minimum when you slready bid 2 minimum spades?

I was at a game a few months ago where the director was having the usual ns-ew difficulties. He finally announced that if he didn’t get a ns to volunteer to switch, we would play the game with two sitouts. Surprise! A pair volunteered. Brilliant!

As reference, partner is a notorious weak weak-2er, frequently with 5. We use mod-Ogust to compensate. I probably was too conservative here, but it was a conditioned reflex…lol

I’m with Peg…makes my head explode. This is supposed to be a competitive game. Why reward the worst pair in a field. Are we doing participation awards like T-ball? Goes against my grain is all.

When I was in Omaha, the limited game had mushroomed to 1500. So the limited game had 15-17 tables while the open game dwindled to 6-10

Partner actually had a hand he could have bid 2 with: Qx, x, Kxxxx, AJxxx.
He did a little downgrade on the Qx and stiff in my first suit. If he bids 2, I bid 3 and we make our way to 5 instead of 3NT. For those of you that play the “impossible spade” bid, is his a clear case for the bid in your opinions?
