Why does 1 show anything more than an opening hand? I have always played that a 1M rebid is forcing as long as responder had his 1st bid (not bidding to escape 1m). Maybe that is what you are saying, I don't know.

I thought 2 would show at least 5 diamonds but it may be correct anyway.

Pass, if partner doubles I will pull.

.LTE. INV? Please translate Steve. And does “advancer's Q only force” refer to advancer's rebid after bidding 1? You have to remember, for all practical purposes, I quit playing about 30 yrs ago. You youngsters have to cut me some slack.

Maybe avoiding a number, your clubs are not all that good and partner has only promised 4. I also don't like having most of my hand in LHO's suit, where are his cards? I think it's close. Maybe I would change my mind at the table. Anyway, partner has another call coming.

Yes Richard, but maybe from the wrong side by partner.

I do, as in taking a position? But I still disagree :)

I tried to think if passing 5 could possibly be right but it still sounds like partner is cuebidding.

I can't construct a hand where partner has his bid and 6NT isn't almost laydown.

Partner is supposed to correct with 2-4 isn't he? But since we all passed, np.

I don't like that treatment (54) because partner is never comfortable bidding immediately to the level he would like. I have had people do it against me usually with good results for my side.

What are the follow-ups if 1 is forcing? In particular, how does overcaller distinguish between good and bad overcalls with or without spade support?

Partner shouldn't be expected to bid your hand for you.

Why 5NT? Is partner ever going to bid 6? He will bid 6 with the round suits and you will have to pass in case he has the minors. Won't he pull 6 to 6 with the reds so we can get to hearts anyway? Is this just a practice 5NT bid or will it somehow help us get to 7?

Couldn't partner pass the neg dbl with something like a flat 3334 and good defense?

No problem with 1 since i have a convenient rebid. It's more of a problem if you switch the minors.
