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

Why Worry about Spades?

MrQ: South’s negative double and then 2S bid confused me. I passed expecting South to have at least 5 spades. South expected me to bid again. Was 2S by South forcing for 1 round? What should the bidding look like here? Guru: South’s double followed by

Simple Signalling

Contract: 4S by South; West to lead. MrQ: I led AK of hearts and my partner signalled 76. We play reverse attitude so I was expecting 6 and then 7 to encourage me to lead 3 round of hearts. Explanation from East was that it

2NT with 10 Points?

Bidding: West opens 1♠ – 2NT – 3♠ – all pass MrQ: We ended up in a good contract but shouldn’t East bid 2♣ rather than 2NT (with only 10 points)? I would rebid diamonds and most likely that’s where we would end up. Makeable

TNT Clarified

MrQ: Was there anything we could have done here? Like maybe East supporting spades with only 3 of them? Guru: Yes, as East I would have raised to 2♠ even though I might expect South to have four of them for the double. Depends on

Game in NT or Major?

Bidding: North opens 1♣ – 1♠ – 2♦ – 3NT – all pass MrQ: Could South have bid 3♠ instead of 3NT to show 6 card spade suit, just in case there was a fit in spades? Guru: South’s 3NT bid is a terrible bid.

Too Fixated on Points

Bidding: West opens 1♥ – (X) – 2NT* – 3♦ – 3♥ – 4♥ – all pass (*Truscott) MrQ: Obviously I forgot we were playing Truscott and interpreted East’s 2NT as denying 4-card major and 11-12 points. I rebid diamonds to show 5 hearts. If

Sleepless Night

Bidding: S opens 1♥ – 1♠ – 3♥ – 3NT – 4♥ – all pass MrQ: I have not been sleeping all night because of this board especially because it was our last board of the evening and the result was miserable. I guess both
