Bidding without Lebensohl
Does 2N show a stopper in at least one of the opponent's suit(s)? Partial stopper? How about 3N? How important do you think this is?
Bidding without Lebensohl
No, she was pretty focused on Dominion strategy when she was five.
Cuebid, Last Train, Slam-Bidding Problem
Are you playing either Serious or Non-Serious 3N in this sequence? Also, I assume from the title that you are playing Last Train, but it might be better to explicitly state it.
Bidding without Lebensohl
I do not doubt Lebensohl is better than not, and that transfers are even better. Memory strain is the issue in this partnership.
Bidding without Lebensohl

Bidding without Lebensohl

Cuebid preferred agreement
For the majority who chose option 1, limit raise or better in spades, how do you get to 3N with good values but no spade fit or stopper (or a partial stopper) in hearts? Too rare a hand to worry about?
Bill Campbell's bidding problem: AQ9 Jxxx K9x xxx
It was during bidding practice, so there was no actual play. On a not too unlikely QD lead, 3N would have made as overcaller had the club and heart aces with six spades to the king.
