about me

I am a bridge addict. There, I admitted it. That's the first step, they say.

I moved from San Diego to San Francisco in April 2016. No regrets (yet).

Opener bids three suits
I think 3 is theoretically forcing to 3N (option: to game), so yes 3 is forcing. But since responder is limited I’d allow opener to break system more often than otherwise. But responder shouldn’t ever allow for that possibility when selecting a rebid. With a random ...
XYZ Problem Hand
Chris your example shouldn't be possible, as partner would open 1 (OP says standard system). Kx Qxx Kxxx KQxx however...

Barry has a reasonable point, but I agree with John that West's correct call is double. Jumping to 4 already showed the playing strength. West could very well bid the same way with a less-shapely stronger hand such as: xx AQxxx xx KQxx But the issue is not ...
