I had forgotten about the wk NT comment but it wouldn't make any difference since I would always rebid 3 but I've never played Acol so what do I know?

I bid 4 as I thought dbl would deny 4 s but I see the point now. Dbl then return to s shows doubt. At least I think I get it. Would one of the doublers confirm or deny? I'm returning to the game after a 20 year layoff and, to say the least, things have changed.

1st thought was 3NT and maybe that's right but there are lots of ways for it to go wrong. At least 1NT gives me some fallback positions.

Maybe I'm being influenced by the quality of my s. Maybe partner is trying to sign off in 5NT. Good “at the table” problem.

I probably would have bid 4 over 3. It's hard not to get excited holding 3 bullets.

So maybe partner expects me to make another call if I have 3? I just can't come up with a hand for partner that makes this auction plausible. I'll just do what my wife accuses one of her partners of doing, if I don't understand my partner's bid I just pass.:) They never do it to me again…

It's ok to consume bidding space when it describes your hand. The 2 bid made this a very good hand since all of your cards are working and your suits are good. I do play that 2 shows 6 but I'm much too good to rebid 2NT.

I'm not sure what partner has but he has decided to play 5. We must be missing 2 KCs. I don't care much for the auction either. I'm sure he will explain it all to me later.

Then I should abstain I guess. Any time a problem looks that easy there must be a catch.

I would have bid 2 at my first turn but can't bid less than 4 now.

Won't responder show s after a 2NT rebid? I don't see any reason to rebid 2 (which should show at least 4-5 in the reds) with this hand. Of course I don't have any idea what BWS is now days.

Looks too good for 3 and if I make a resp dbl what will I do over 4?

Is 2 GF? Please let us know what system is being used in the future. At 2/1 it is a clear 3D bid.
