I have never discussed this situation with a partner but I would expect him to make the same call as without the xx.

I would bid 3 if I didn't have a partner.

And what was your partner's explanation? How many times did he want you to show your hand?

The Q is almost certainly worthless but still you have nothing to be ashamed of for your 3 call.

Just curious, what's your objection?

Since I have club length partner is probably short and will balance with enough cards to make a game (probably).

Agree, I wanted to bid 2 to play.

Anyone can bid when they have cards, it takes character to bid with nothing.

Yeah, but he's still recovering from playing with Zia.

Much safer to open than come in later.

I thought about the 2 but there's no reason why dummy has to have the ace or partner the Q and it may be the only lead which lets it make. I love playing against Zia on these hands because you know if he leads dummy's suit he has the K.

I'm not stopping short of game and I know what suit to play in.

We may miss a slam but partner, being short in spades, has gotten us into an auction that otherwise would have ended in 3. I am not going to punish him for that.

I agree 100% Richard. I don't even think 3 sets trump for further bidding. In forcing situations, jumps always show good suits.

You can look on their card to see about Flannery. As to the 2nd question, what are you looking for, a percentage? If they said “Oh, about 6 out of 10” would you believe it? If they said “never” you might believe that but I wouldn't bet the house on it.

The old “head in the sand” approach. It works well except when you have a partner. I reserve the 3rd seat 4 card major openings for when I am happy to pass whatever partner bids.

RHO is bidding on something and it's not cards, probably clubs as well as spades.
