1. Asking. When you pass by a suit you have a stopper in the by passed suit. So if you bid 3NT here you have a spade stopper - and maybe a club stopper but not for sure. This is the rule I have with my regular partners. This rule is even better when clubs are our suit and trying for 3NT.

2. Both minors. If I have a heart raise I bid 3H.

When dummy has xx, xxx or xxxx - then we play Standard signals and not UDCA. So With J9x you just play the x.

You are right! The hand is from Geneva 1990 - and Garozzo won.

Anyone for the full deal? :):)

This was Souths hand:

5
K82
AK764
AQ76

What would you have bid with Souths hand?

IMO 3C,3D and 3H all are non forcing. Partner has forced you to 3 level and you can have down to 11p. Partners double show min.9+ so you can not be sure of game.

Any good ideas/suggestions? :)

PS.4H was an easy win and 3NT one down. We played 3NT. :(

Partner had:
-
7
AK10543
AK9762

The minors behaved so no problems in 7C.

Both teams bid 6C.

Thanks for your interest and comments.

Maybe partner has a hand with a singelton in major. How does he find out if you have the right major ace - if you only have one ace? It can often be a little difficult when you play cuebids and RKC like most of us do.;)

Does partner blast?

IMO he is showing a hand which can win 6C or 6D based on his information from your 2 bids. What kind of hand can that be? Then you must decide if your 2 aces and 2 minor queens is such a nice surprise for partner that you can bid 7C.

Partner must have maximum ( else he pass ) and now shows keycards 1 or 4 ( or 0 or 3? ). Anyway I bid 6sp. If partner has only 2 spades I expect him to bid 6NT cause I can not have 6+ spades.

@Eduard.
And when partner has refused the trialbid in 3H by bidding 3S?
I guess 3H is a long suit trialbid.

I asked my 4 favorite partners - and they all lead a 2 to show club entrance for the second diamond ruff!

So they are still my favorite partners. :):)

@ Michael

W is 3442, N 4405 and E 2443.

N has AK74, A1098 - Q10987. Or even AK54, A865, - Q10974.

IMO diamonds lead stands out. It can be only lead to beat the contract - or the lead does not matter cause partner is so strong he can beat contract himself


And this is just two of many examples/constructions. :)
