- sheldon spier: 3S – this is definitely a Q bid. with 3 key cards, no fast arrival. can’t skip past a spade Q in case pard’s spades are lousy.
- David Todd: 3S – Let the confusion begin
- James Macdonnell: 4C – If partner replies 4 hearts (one ace) leave it there, but if partner has both of the missing aces, try for slam.
- David Todd: 3N – Diamonds are not running, clubs are. How do two passed hands suddenly find the values for the three level?
- James Macdonnell: Pass – Waiting
- sheldon spier: 3D – need to invite. pd likely has 5 + D’s. Can’t bid NT without clubs stopped and want it forn pd’s side.
- David Todd: 1N – I am not denying a hand this good, nothing else makes sense.
- sheldon spier: 5H – making or sacking? not sure. Would like to bid 5C if understood at the 5 level that must mead H support
- David Todd: 5H – The best way to defend 5S doubled.
- David Todd: 2C – Easy one.
