I don't mind the 4-3 so I double. 2 is very likely to get us overboard.

I play 1NT as about 8-10, maybe a robust 7, so this doesn't qualify. But either 1NT or 2, just not pass as it makes it too easy for the opponents and too difficult for partner.

So what's new?

Yeah, you made a bid and got the response you knew you were going to get and now you don't know what to do? LOL

I don't think 4 will help them much, they are going to game anyway as opener will never pass 3. Maybe partner can take a profitable save. And maybe it will steal their cuebid.

If I wasn't planning on competing to 2 then why did I bid 1 rather than 1?

The problem is not when he rebids 1NT, but when he rebids 2. If I respond 1 and partner raises and I still have no idea where we belong then I probably shouldn't have responded 1.

Leo:“you will frequently get boxed out of your 44 ♥ fit when the opponents bid ♠ over your 1♦ response”
Why?

Unlikely, but your next decision may be what to lead.

Thanks, new to me.

I think the main problem is that partner may raise spades on 3 and now a diamond bid would not be a correction but a game or slam try in spades.

No guarantees but the Q is a bid card.

Dave, I agree but I voted for 2NT since I believe most people play some sort of modified responses. If I bid 2 it might be difficult to convince partner that I have 4 card support.

I've never heard of that being forcing.

I think you must be East, not West?

But don't those fake suit jump shifts tend to be followed by delayed support for responder's suit? Something like Axx KQx AKJxxx x? What do you plan on bidding next after a 3 bid by partner?

While not necessary to get to game, it stresses good spades while showing some slam interest below the game level in one bid. The problem is that it doesn't show the heart suit so 2 leaves more room for that.

He needn't have clubs. As I said, he could be (32) in the minors with a minimum on this auction. I suppose he might even have 17 and 3541 or 3550 with bad suits but that doesn't leave much for the balancer.

That would make me nervous, especially the 2 / 1.
