Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Responder’s rebid
While I realise that clever people will play clever stuff (I do not decry this since I play clever stuff myself but do not play 2/1 regularly) the sort of player who asked me this will be playing a fairly simple vanilla 2/1 system. So my question is ...
Coffee housing
L68C says how a claim should be made to which you are referring. But L68A defines when a claim is made so a bad claim (which, frankly, is the norm with claims) is still a claim.

A touch of optimism in my 3 bid. I now bid 4 unless partner bids 3 which I raise. There is no guarantee game is playable but it might easily be which is good enough at imps, and I cannot find out what I want to know ...
Robin Barker's bidding problem: 74 AKQT8542 A42 ---
I believe it is to play but thinking about it I think it should not be. While I originally said pass because of this if my partner thinks his spades are better than my hearts perhaps I should go on even if 4S is a signoff. So I am changing ...
