I hate to comment on my own problem but I just don't understand the 3 and 3NT bids. Why give a preference to s with xxx? That can't possibly help partner decide where to place the contract but at least it keeps the bidding open. 3NT with 2 aces and a 1-loser suit is incomprehensible. I can't dream up a hand for this bidding where slam isn't at least 95%.

Paul, I think I like your comment but not sure what it means:)

What do you bid with 54 and a GF hand?

It's either 4 or pass and I am not about to pass.

Anything could be right, pure luck.

Whether 3 is forcing is a matter of agreement but it doesn't matter here because I know where I want to play so I am bidding it.

I'm sure he would have if he had known you would lead A :)

Would have bid 4 earlier. I hope the lead doesn't give up trick 9. I will check the backs of my cards. I like the double if it shows support and denies the A or K.

This is just one of those things that needs discussion. I personally wouldn't chance it without that discussion.

4 if the 4 card side suit were anything but s

This is the reason I don't play new suit forcing. What do you bid with a non-fitting hand that is worth an opening bid and what do you bid with a trash overcall? I would appreciate some enlightenment from the NSF players.

I like to use the yardstick of LTC on borderline hands. With 7 losers I pass.

2, hoping I will get another chance later to show diamonds. Even if NT is right it should be played from the other side. If I get a raise I will ask for a stop.

There is just room for K in partner's hand, trying to set up a trick before A gets knocked out. I don't expect to get much if 6nt makes even if it is cold.

I would like a lead vs their likely 4 contract. This is my only chance to get it. I can always run to 4 if doubled.

OK, thanks for the info…

It's only one board and hopefully partner's cards are over dummy's. The alternatives are all losers.

Why is 2 limited to 3 card support? This is a limit raise (or better). Too good for mixed raise or 4, although that might work out. Way too good for 3.
