Karen (Kate) McCallum's bidding problem: QT A953 KT97653 ---
Should partner perhaps make an offbeat takeout double of 2S with AKxx AJxx Qx Txx? It seems weird, but you aren't well-placed if partner balances, and you expect that he will. You don't know whether to bid hearts or notrumps over a balancing double. And you don't ...

Of course, Australia would bid! I knew that! :):) If passing is right (and it could be), count me out. The real question in my mind was whether I was good enough to double. 3D tends to deny four hearts in my partnership, since double followed by 3D shows diamonds with ...

Partner didn't overcall 2NT... so maybe it's unlikely that he would want to play 3NT facing a hand like this. On the other hand he didn't make a takeout double, making 4H less likely as well. It's difficult, IMO. What about doubling on the first round ...

Is it really only a guess? Surely there is a percentage action?
THIS WEEK'S MATCH
