about me

Tried to follow "Mom's First Rule of Bridge" since I started learning this game.  ("No one cares if you are good or bad, don't be slow")

I didn't think I did either :)
How do you play this bid?
It is a support-X with three-card support for partner's pass. The other ten cards should be useful. For me, this is a good 4-6 hand.
What is 4!C?
Without agreement, I would assume partner meant it as natural. But I prefer a cue with agreement.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AQ92 KJT9853 98 ---
I am not sure that I want to shoot out 4 and see what happens. This is because if it goes P-P-4-P, I am winning. But if LHO makes any other call, things probably wont work out so well because this hand is not good enough to open ...
