Banished to the Couch
Round suits, Pard can dbl with strong balanced hand, jump to his solid suit with runners. With pard forcing to 3 level and doubleton , I have enough to bid 4.
YBTJ (and Jury?) - Regional Swiss Teams
Some play 4 after 3 shows the 6-4 in black suits
YBTJ (and Jury?) - Regional Swiss Teams
But North treated his hand as such(GF with spades), so why not show it via 3C to give South an option? Admittedly I would like to have a stiff for the bid, but can't have everything. I like to be able to jump to 3NT without 6 spades ...

Alan Schwartz's lead problem: Q97 J4 JT84 JT84
Here the reason for my posting a "bad" lead problem. I didn't consider a major suit lead. Thus which minor? With similar suits usually I choose the one with the better inner spots. Not an option here. So I took the 2 minor suit Jacks unobserved under the table ...
