Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Support doubles
Support double. However, I play that 1 just shows four or more and double (instead of 1) denies spades. Others invert these meanings (which may well be better).
Howard Sandler's bidding problem: AK72 J65 AQT95 9
2NT: limit or better in hearts. Important to show the fit.
Why abstain/abstain?
But we cannot even abstain.
James Huntington's bidding problem: AT5 AKQJT765 4 3
4, followed by an ‘Action Double’.
Minimum number of !Cs?
Showing club shortness (0/1) looks like more useful than showing length.
High or Low?
Partner led Q and it has not been their turn since.
4NT in Competition
Two places to play, typically 5-5. Not a slam try.
Is this 3!d bid game forcing?
I am totally against bids being ‘forcing to game or four of a minor’. Better end up in five of a minor, down one, than in four of a minor, cold for six or seven, opposite a partner who wanted to just set the trump suit.
Is this 3!d bid game forcing?
Over 3 any bid is forcing to game.
What is your opinion about skipping 1!D after partner opened 1!C?
I play Transfer-Walsh, presumed that falls under the last option.
