You be the Judge - missed game over weak 2
If you opened 1 and partner raised to 2 would you make a game try? It would be nice to be playing something where you could show this kind of raise - mixed or Bergen - but lots of pairs don't.
You be the Judge - missed game over weak 2
I would want to be in game if I knew my partner's hand. North's failure to raise diamonds makes it hard to diagnose the excellent fit and there are lots of other possible hands for either partner where s/he would take the same auction and game is ...
Emanuel Evacic's bidding problem: A4 Q93 AQT432 A2
Too good to open 1NT playing 15-17.
Ronald Vickery's bidding problem: A7 KQ82 962 J762

Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: KJ763 AJ873 9 75
I meant that I would enter over 1 as unpassed hand; I would also pass on the auction in your comment.

I would show my two-suiter if I was an unpassed hand so I getting into trouble in that case.
Is this "Reverse" Forcing?
@Mark: re: High reverse I could have rebid 2 instead of 3 it does meet my definition.
Is this "Reverse" Forcing?
@Martin/Mark: I have seen at least a few different definitions of reverse. Mine is: "A reverse is a bid which forces simple preference of suit to a level higher than that at which the preferred ("first") suit could have been bid instead" Some things to note: • It includes responder ...
