Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
How should these hands be bid playing 2/1 GF?
If Craig would have bid 2NT instead of 3, which does not show length anyway, he would have heard from his partner whether he got a three card minor. A much better way to explore a minor suit slam and much safer as well.
How should these hands be bid playing 2/1 GF?
I do not think 3C is fine. It looks obvious but is in fact stupid. Opener has shown at least 9 cards in the majors. If you bid 2NT opener will bid 3 clubs with 3 cards in clubs and 3 diamonds with 3 cards in diamonds, showing by implication ...
The deal played itself
"... on any lead you cash all your high cards then cross ruff..." It is always problematic to give deals with small x instead of actual cards Assume that the third heart held by West beats any small heart heart held by North. Now when you cash the fourth club East ...
ATB
My solution is to play negative free bids at the 2-level. A good suit, constructive hand but not forcing. This is exactly what West has and on frequency grounds what he will most likely hold (apart from a standard negative double hand) Time and again I see people, who play ...
Ethical, questionable or cheating?

The 2!c strong opening is annoying
@Steve 1.) agreed 2.) The philosophy behind 2 "waiting" is that given the 2 opening, it is likely that it is more important for opener to show the nature of his hand than for responder. So responder should be reluctant to take bidding room away from opener. A ...
The 2!c strong opening is annoying
That depends on system. Assuming nothing special I would raise diamonds. Sure I would like to have better diamonds to raise, but partner has very likely long and good diamonds and I am not stopping in 6 diamonds anyway. But before I bid 4NT I would bid 6NT.
The 2!c strong opening is annoying
On the first hand having responded 2 and opener bidding 3 it would never occur to me stopping below 6NT. Where is the problem? If anything it is a matter judgement. I would never bid 4NT natural, because this is a definite underbid. Look at openers hand. I ...
Do you play Drury?
Nothing! That is Bridge!
Critique the bidding
Sure and 7 might still be cheaper than 6 plus one.
