I don't play big club but, even with support doubles, I doubt that T63 qualifies.

I made this decision last round.

2, looking for a super-accept. Over 2 will bid 3NT.

I don't think that fact would change anyone's bid, not mine anyway. What percentage of the time would a 1 overcaller have only a 4 card suit? Get in the fast lane!

Thanks Gerry but I think the cat's already out of the bag :)

Probably right, maybe WDMPMTSB (Why Did My Partner Make That Stupid Bid?) would be better.

Why would you say that?

I'm glad this thing comes with a dictionary.

With only one bid coming it seems like double comes closer to describing this hand a 1 overcall.

I considered that but most would play double as showing the majors. 4 now followed by 5 over 4 for the lead hoping partner will read it. Otherwise an immediate 5.

I would agree if the K were anywhere else.

So far I have shown a Yarborough without support for either of partner's suits so this can't be a GF auction. It's about time that I showed some values since neither 2NT nor 3 should be forcing.

I don't much like the original pass but it's not outrageous. I would probably have bid 1.

Playing fishbag I would bid 2 but I would rather be playing Gazzilli.

It might be right to pass even if partner has 4 spades since RHO is also short in diamonds and will be over-ruffing dummy and if he has only 3 then pass is definitely better.

I agree that we need to know what the double shows.

You should either post this type of hand as an ATB or wait for a few days to give partner's hand for obvious reasons.

Agree to disagree, if my partner opened 1 and I held your hand I might not make an immediate GF but I would certainly make sure we got to game, and not via a preemptive raise to 4. This would be a good hand for an artificial limit raise followed by “accepting my own game try”.

I understand what you are saying but my answer still stands. Without agreement, a raise is a raise.
