I find it strange that some are assuming partner has a club fit (in 1). He could show that by bidding 4C. A fit non jump only makes sense when the opponents are bidding and raising, and partner bid voluntarily. Also if he has diamonds and clubs, that gives the ...
Tim, for 1C 1Y 1M guaranteeing clubs, it would make sense to be able to play in 2C. But the 4333 type system would benefit from the artificial game force. I reckon.
Too Conservative or just Unlucky?—ATB?
Even at pairs Kieran? What about a good pair game?
Frances Hinden's bidding problem: JT952 A2 A92 JT3
I think it's important to stick to your guns and reopen, playing takeout doubles. I don't really get all the passes at these colours. Vulnerable, we let it go since partner won't have a penalty pass.
Finding 4-4 majors fits after 1M - 2NT (unusual)
Although somewhat derided, you might play the expensive cue as support, and the cheap cue as 4+ in the other major. Eg 1S (2N) ? - high cue 3D = support - 3H 3S = NF nat - 3C = 4+H, opener bids 3H with 4, else 3D. I think this also works over a minor ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: KJ8652 --- 64 A9643
Depends on your opponents... Sometime this 3H comes with spades.
Showing spades after 1m (1!H)
Opposite a precision diamond or a short club, opener often is often a weak NT, and so a 1-->NT bid is valuable. Opener is unlikely to want to compete to the 3 level on many hands. Opposite an unbalanced 1, the situation is opposite: opener (almost?) never ...
John Diamond's lead problem: J843 T6 KQT2 KT3
Second best to partner's suit? (I led the 10 recently from such a suit, declarer had 9x).
How low have you run an opponent out of pass cards?
See, bridge is tough as a spectator sport, even as a playing spectator.
Jessica Brake's bidding problem: J KJT983 4 AK763
I think you guys are correct. Well, there's a disaster waiting to happen.
