Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Hypothetical UI question
Information you have from authorised sources is clean. However, the situation is a bit different if you just inferred that declarer denied an ace, instead of concrete information like a Blackwood response.
Slow double - should I pull anyway?
If my partner hasn't figured out that I have a minimum with short spades, he's deaf.
Paul Dalley's bidding problem: AT2 7 AJ5 Q98762
3S is an excellent bid, with just two tiny flaws.
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: K543 J96 --- AKQ986
3H wasn't so much "cowardly" as "comatose".
Soner Cubukcu's bidding problem: xxxxx Q9xx JTx x
"You have a decent six card suit? That's nothing. I have a four card suit and a three card suit to choose from".
meaning of a bid
A Bluhmer would be genuinely impossible bid in a suit known to contain length. That doesn't apply here.
Merijn Groenenboom's bidding problem: KQT964 AJ54 5 Q9
2H and 2S are both OK. With the spades headed by the ace, I'd heavily prefer 2H.
Leonard Helfgott's bidding problem: xx JT8xx AQ9xx x
A heart fit won't help us outbid spades any better than a diamond raise.
meaning of a bid
Whatever he has, he should have been bidding earlier.
Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: T62 AJ52 A AJT92
With your example hand, I would have bid 5C. Remove a big card, and 4C at a minimum. If he has a singleton heart, I really don't think I'm buying a fourth club.
