Guess the (non)finesse - or do we have enough clues?
Right, there is in "or" missing in the original text: X was the system bid to show either 4+♠ (from ~8 working points) or a gf hand with only 3-c fit.
Guess the (non)finesse - or do we have enough clues?
Sorry, I wanted to and forgot. They were vul, we were not and yes, opener was in 1st seat. And to answer the next question: Good opposition, it was the quarter final of the German K.O. Championship and they would also have won if I had made the right ...

Gerben Dirksen's bidding problem: K8753 5 KJ985 J7
