Never heard of that, Ulf. I certainly wouldn't try it without discussion.

4 was also available so I think 5 denies either. Responder probably wouldn't bid 4 there as a suit, preferring 3NT.

Are you saying that the 2 bid should show 10-13? I don't understand.

Oh, I see. How did I miss that obvious bid? You got any more of that stuff? I would like to try some. :)

Coming up with a 2 opener without a club control on this hand will be left to the reader. I can think of several without even trying too hard.

Good thing we weren't playing this hand together :)

He's not going to put anything together since you gave him no clue as to what you hold. You are going to be making all of the guesses on this hand so good luck.

Since there is only one unbid suit, it asks for a control in that suit. And Nikos, do you actually want to be in 7 off 2 cashing clubs?

Even if, for some reason, my system wouldn't let me bid 1, I still wouldn't bid 2, EVER. And what difference does it make what kind of hand partner would open with in 4th seat? Sorry, I must be getting tired.

I assume the 3 bidders mean this as showing doubt in spades but I don't know why. Is that a standard treatment?

Why is partner doubling if he can't beat 2? And I have 3 spades! I would never pull this but it's still my fault if it makes because I didn't bid 2 over 1NT like I had some sense.

Depending on partner's clubs and hearts, 4 might be the right spot. Partner can't conventionally ask for 3 card heart support without forcing to game unless playing something that wasn't specified.

It's either pass or double because partner's pass is not forcing. Since my 4 could have been based on long hearts and nothing else I think I have to double.

5 seems like it should be to play but I've never had it come up. Of course I've only been playing for a little over 50 years.

But the QT is worth at least a K so it sort of balances out.

Martin, if partner has a 6 card major, as here, why would you want to play NT, or anything other than 4?
