This should show some cards if playing lebensohl here.

Partners always stretch to bid game in these situations so I pass.

Why am I playing with GIB? I didn't ask to.

Why would you ever pose a bidding problem and say you are playing with GIB? Why not just say you are playing with a retarded baboon?

Oh, I see. “You wanted to play it semi-forcing so I passed. Not my fault it plays 2 tricks better in spades!”

You are right, I must have misread the problem.

Patrick, you are correct, that is what i said but not what I meant. What I meant to say is if they are already at the 3 level then it is against LOTT for your side to compete to the 3 level with only an 8 card fit. Sorry.

Patrick, yes it is a basic tenet of LOTT to not allow opps to play at the 2 level in an 8 card fit, but also to not compete to the 3 level yourself in an 8 card fit. Partner would need a very good reason to compete again.

Over here it's not and since partner only needs the right 11 for a laydown slam I don't think it's enough.

I don't agree with either of those comments.

He read that somewhere. So far, no one has recommended going past the 2 level.

Greg, I'm not sure I understand your comments. Have you seen this hand and Know what partner has and what he will bid over 2? I am not saying that a 2 call will necessarily work out but that it comes closer to a description of your hand than a pass IMO.

Looks like partner needs a card to make 3NT. I think it has two chances, slim and none. I might try it a IMPs but not a matchpoints.

Although I would play 5 for trump quality I think they meant it as inability to cue a minor.

Assuming you decide to open 1, what is your rebid over a 2 response playing 2/1?

Not sure what it means but that's what I meant. What are the 4H bidders going to bid over 4S?

I neglected to mention that we play a rebid of the major shows 6.

4 if it's kickback. When partner shows 2 I will follow with Q ask and if he has that I will take a shot at 7 clubs. Looks like fun.

Obviously 2 is not above the 2 level… If the opponents follow The Law blindly then they will not want to let us play at the 2 level in an announced fit.

How about 2 aces, a honor and ruffing value?
