Remember that partner may not have four spades. You just cannot wait until you have the perfect two four-card majors before doubling 1-(2).

One of the worst defenses is to play 1 as ‘any thirteen cards’ (apart from whether it is legal).

That, and pass is usually nothing to add, occasionally any strong hand.

It feels less than logical to bid now when 1 could have been passed out; however, the reason we did not bid earlier was not so much that our hand was not good enough, but we did not have a suitable bid.

This is exactly why I am an ardent proponent of always and everywhere using AKQJ10 pips (I also hate T for 10).

Note above that the V is a queen in The Netherlands, a jack in France. Just imagine what bridge would be like if were hearts in The Netherlands, diamonds in France.

Ample bids to show better raises (like 2NT limit+, 3 mixed raise), so 3 should show about this hand.

2. It does not pay to try for around 24 HCP games after a mini notrump (which I play myself).

Was this specifically an ACBL game? If not, why would ACBL rules apply?
