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.

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.

Leaving room for partner to complete the description.

You seem to have omitted this, “1S shows 0-4 spades and less than a game force hand.”

Brad, do you by any chance have money invested in this project?

Ian, it sounds like a fun system but I don't see the point in posting a problem without telling us what you are playing.

I agree but don't like 1 for two reasons:
Makes it difficult to compete in diamonds and more importantly I don't want partner to lead a heart when lho bids spades.

depends on your agreement as to the difference between slow and fast 3

Since I am always getting to 6 and never to 7, I won't give the opps more room to investigate a save.

Since partner was willing to play 3 I would guess 4 implies support but as to whether it shows a heart suit, who knows?

On second thought, partner has a diamond fit and a spade stop. He is competing to 4 but just in case… I still pull.

Don't be so wishy-washy.

I wouldn't play with GIB. From my small amount of experience he is just as likely to bid 7 as anything else if I make a call.
