I like 2. If partner raises he should have 5 spades. If not you get more info than you would with a jump to 3

How can 4 be non-minimum when you slready bid 2 minimum spades?

I was at a game a few months ago where the director was having the usual ns-ew difficulties. He finally announced that if he didn’t get a ns to volunteer to switch, we would play the game with two sitouts. Surprise! A pair volunteered. Brilliant!

As reference, partner is a notorious weak weak-2er, frequently with 5. We use mod-Ogust to compensate. I probably was too conservative here, but it was a conditioned reflex…lol

I’m with Peg…makes my head explode. This is supposed to be a competitive game. Why reward the worst pair in a field. Are we doing participation awards like T-ball? Goes against my grain is all.

We had a NAP qualifier this week where a 27% got a Q! Wonders never cease…

When I was in Omaha, the limited game had mushroomed to 1500. So the limited game had 15-17 tables while the open game dwindled to 6-10

Partner actually had a hand he could have bid 2 with: Qx, x, Kxxxx, AJxxx.
He did a little downgrade on the Qx and stiff in my first suit. If he bids 2, I bid 3 and we make our way to 5 instead of 3NT. For those of you that play the “impossible spade” bid, is his a clear case for the bid in your opinions?

Sounds like a reasonable understanding to have. Thus 3NT would deny a spade stopper I guess. But club situation would be ambiguous?

What meaning would you give to 3? Worried about spades? Worried about clubs? Other?

First time I’ve seen Jeff’s shoes tied. Do I sense a trend? Great job guys.

Partner had x, x, AKT9xxx, Axxx. Not exactly a 3 bid. 3NT is last making contract. I think Chuck and Jack’s comments are relevant.

Since I’m not a ORF advocate, I’m not qualified to answer that. Anyone else?
