Would bid 3 originally. Now I think I am endplayed into 3NT.

I play original 3 is natural, invitational so that would be my choice. Of course, that may have been influenced by getting a preview of opener's rebid. I could end up playing 3 when 7 is cold.

Partner has <3 spades since he didn't redouble.

No, Lynn. I was saying that since opener's 2 rebid didn't promise 6, he has to KEEP bidding them or just give up on them. And as for Paul's comment that 3 gave responder the option of giving a spade preference, responder might be afraid that a preference would show Hx or deny a heart stop…

I think I actually voted for 3NT in the other poll but no bid is a stickout. When you bid 3 you were taking a chance so live with it I guess. Personally, I would pass with this hand because it's close and I don't want to be the goat. I'll leave that for the 3 bidder.

He can listen to the bidding and look at his hand. With the hand you give below, I would certainly think about running. I don't think it's West's responsibility to be a hero and unilaterally run when partner makes a vul overcall at the 3 level. Sometimes the bear gets you…

Especially if partner rebids 3.

The “rebid a major with only 5” approach loses again.

Anything's possible but I wouldn't recommend trying it at home.

Steve, I don't think 4 over 3 would be Texas since that would leave you with no way to play 4, since 4 there shouldn't be a transfer. More like a hand with one or two 3-card majors (or 4-card, if not playing puppet) and a slam suggestion. I'm fairly sure RF meant he would rebid 4 over 3 in his comment above.

Me too, but I bid it anyway.

I think it depends on where you are, Richard. Over here the field is usually bad until you reach the real NABC events.

The J is a big card. If partner has made a bad bid he has the option to run. For all I know we may already be in the best spot.

4 may be better even if we have an 8 card fit so just to avoid possible confusion, 4 Texas.

I agree, at MP, go with the field.

Just a guess, it might be easier at the table.

Pls change the “even if we can even beat it” to “if we can even beat it”
I need a proofreader…

Rich, if it's not, it should be. Does the WBF have any such restrictions?
