If Only We Played Evil Twos …
Bidding: West opened 1NT – all pass.
MrQ: Because we play Hamilton we couldn’t do anything here. If we played Evil 2s South could have overcalled 2♦ showing diamonds and hearts. What should North do then? Fix it to 2♥ following the logic: we have at most 7-card fit in diamonds (maybe only 6-card fit) but at least 7-card fit in hearts (but maybe even 8-card fit)?
Guru: Yes, Evil works better, South bids 2♦ and North corrects to 2♥. You will, though, need to practice playing 4-3 fits if you decide to play Evil Acol.
