Unusual NT or Not
I don't understand how 1H is a "faster" way to find a heart fit than 2NT. Unless you mean it's the fastest way for you to know you have a fit? (since if partner bids 3H, it could be on a doubleton sometimes). Still, I'm not sure ...
ATB
I think there are some hands where it might be reasonable to pass over 3S, and then save over 4. Not this one, but you might be pretty confident game will make, and are content to defend 3S, while thinking you have a good save over 4. Not a tactic ...
ATB
while N's bid could work, you're really trying to get a bottom. You might, on a bad day, go down too many, but also you have no idea if they're making. Crazy sacrifices at favorable are, imo, just not recommended. S's bid is also pretty weird ...
ATB
If double shows a doubleton spade, then east shouldn't double. This would involve having the agreement to play 2n takeout. Absent that agreement, I don't see what e can do but double, and in that case, w should really not leave it in
Trick 4 Play
If decanter is world class, then we surely aren't cashing clubs when wed have such a huge guess at t2 if they ducked. I think declared has something like aqxx axx xx q9xx. I think either major suit should be fine, but a spade felt more intuitive to me ...
Lame Claims
I'm having them ruff and underruff now, so I don't see why that case is different. Btw, I reread the poll and realized I was supposed to answer as a defender, not a director. As a defender, I would not call the director in any of these cases ...
Lame Claims
I think there is a HUGE difference betweeen these two cases. In the first case, declarer is probably in a perfectly normal frame of mind. Most of the time, there is no reason why their claim would be wrong, and thus there is no reason to think they could ever ...
TD please
but to answer your question Norman, it is standard to play that a single-jump in this case is a very strong bid, but is not forcing. In order to force absolutely, you must double, then cuebid, then bid a new suit.
Is it forcing?
fair enough, I guess I was answering based on my current notes (which don't have such a section), rather than standard (which, as I'm often told by certain people, I have "gaps" in)
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: AK3 8 AK9863 K74
It would be nice if 3H showed this hand, but I obviously can't bid it without agreement that it's not some 5-6 (maybe reverse than rebid would be some 5-6 of different strength...). 3D is slightly under, but normal enough, and it does at least give partner a ...
