What call would you make?

What call would you make?

A - Give partner some room in case
he balanced light. Bid 3H, showing
an invitation, and respect his decision
to stop in 3S if that is what he does.

A - Partner has shown a balanced
12-14 point hand and you should
force to game opposite that. Other
routes are possible, but bidding 4H
now is fine.

South, you hold:

What call would you make?
A - Assuming you want to accept this
invitation, just bid 4H. Don’t tell the
opponents any more about your hand.

Q 5 - East-West vulnerable, as South,
you hold:
♠ Q J 3 ♥ Q ♦ J 10 7 6 ♣ J 9 7 5 4

Partner opens 1H and right-hand
opponent doubles. What call would
you make?
A - When partner’s opening bid gets
doubled at the one level, just make
your normal call if that is at the one
level also. Bid 1NT.

Q 3 - East-West vulnerable, as South,
you hold:

Q 6 - North-South vulnerable, as
South, you hold:

♠ K 4 ♥ Q J 8 ♦ K 7 5 3 ♣ 10 9 7 6

♠ 5 ♥ K 10 5 ♦ Q 8 7 5 3 ♣ K Q J 8

Partner opens 1NT, 15-17, and righthand opponent passes. What call
would you make?

Partner opens 1S and right-hand
opponent bids 2D. What call would
you make?

A - We like this hand, but a balanced
9-point hand without a five-card suit
is only worth an invitation. Bid 2NT.

A - A trap pass would appeal at other
vulnerabilities. At this vulnerability
we would bid 2NT.
