Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Can a declarer ask what the contract is?
I just read this thread. The answer is yes. All the rest was surplussage.
What Is Partner Saying to You?
Somehow not leading from Axx seems wrong to me.
What Is Partner Saying to You?
So you are saying that he would not double with KQxxx?
What Is Partner Saying to You?
Sorry - don't want to hijack the thread, but since 2 posters mentioned this, I want to interject a question. Double of a transfer bid when the opponents are playing a weak NT - two posters say this shows a good hand and does not relate to the transfer suit. I ...

Hand from Gatlinberg KO’s
One thing we have found is that opening a mini-NT with a 5 card major is probably not a good idea. Because your objectives are not purely constructive, you need to be able to convey as much information as quickly as possible and get out of the auction with the ...
Hand from Gatlinberg KO’s
There are all sorts of methods over 2. The method that I use is: 2M - 4 cards in other major (5 cards is not allowed) 2NT - an unspecified 5+ card minor - no 4 card major - not 2245 or 2254 3 - 4-4 in the majors 3 - 4-4 in ...
