More Trust in Partner

MrQ: Maybe I shouldn’t double not being particularly strong but I thought that I am showing diamonds and partial support for hearts and asking West to bid again (any 2-level rebid was cool with me). 3C rebid showed me only 10-11 points with club support

No Need for 2 Stoppers

MrQ: Interesting 3NT bid from South with only 1 spade stopper over 2S weak overcall … anyway the moment West leads 5 of spades NS makes 5NT. Was it the best lead considering that South most likely showed 2 stoppers in spades? I think I

(Un)lucky Board#13

Bidding: North opens 1C – all pass MrQ: I passed North’s 1C which ended up to be 4 light and bottom board. Should I bid something/rescue thinking that we will eventually find a fit in a non-club suit? So bid 1S and rebid 2H and

Obvious Bid

Bidding: North opens 1H – 1S; 2C – 2D; 2H – all pass MrQ: Shouldn’t North bid 2S instead of 2H? When South rebids 2D (whether natural or forcing), South pretty much denies 3-card heart support so North knows that there is at most 5-2

Boils Down to Hand Evaluation

MrQ: I don’t think 2NT rebid from East was good. With this kind of bidding from opposition (who showed something like 18+ points – although you never know as you can see) I expected East to have pretty strong hand (17 or good 16) and

Risky Bidding?

MrQ: Good result but the bidding was a bit awkward and … risky? I didn’t want to just rebid 2D as I felt I need to force my partner to bid again. I was hoping she would rebid spades to show me 5 of them.

Sure Plus vs Possible Minus

Bidding: S opens 1NT – West doubles – All Pass MrQ: This deal reminded me of similar situation I was in a few weeks back – not as a doubler but as the partner of the doubler sitting with 11 HCP balanced vul against non-vul.

Double Twice is The Answer

Bidding: East opens 1D – 1S – (X); 3S – ALL PASS MrQ: I guess North had 3 options after 3S: PASS, X, 4H. Which one do you think is the most reasonable? I think I would double for takeout (having all other suits covered)

… or Hoping to Make

Bidding: East opens weak 2H – (2S) – 4H – (PASS); PASS – (4S) – ALL PASS MrQ: Should South just pass 4H instead of bidding 4S? You never know what 4H raise after 2H is? Could be constructive, could be pre-emptive. My logic was

Take That as a Warning!!!

MrQ: Shouldn’t East rebid 2D? 3D is game force showing 18/19 points so West needs to keep bidding to game … Guru: Precisely, East’s bid is 2D and West should then bid 2S. I have said this before and will say it  again: when partner
