This was Souths hand:

5
K82
AK764
AQ76

What would you have bid with Souths hand?

IMO 3C,3D and 3H all are non forcing. Partner has forced you to 3 level and you can have down to 11p. Partners double show min.9+ so you can not be sure of game.

Any good ideas/suggestions? :)

PS.4H was an easy win and 3NT one down. We played 3NT. :(

Partner had:
-
7
AK10543
AK9762

The minors behaved so no problems in 7C.

Both teams bid 6C.

Thanks for your interest and comments.

Maybe partner has a hand with a singelton in major. How does he find out if you have the right major ace - if you only have one ace? It can often be a little difficult when you play cuebids and RKC like most of us do.;)

Does partner blast?

IMO he is showing a hand which can win 6C or 6D based on his information from your 2 bids. What kind of hand can that be? Then you must decide if your 2 aces and 2 minor queens is such a nice surprise for partner that you can bid 7C.

Partner must have maximum ( else he pass ) and now shows keycards 1 or 4 ( or 0 or 3? ). Anyway I bid 6sp. If partner has only 2 spades I expect him to bid 6NT cause I can not have 6+ spades.

@Eduard.
And when partner has refused the trialbid in 3H by bidding 3S?
I guess 3H is a long suit trialbid.

I asked my 4 favorite partners - and they all lead a 2 to show club entrance for the second diamond ruff!

So they are still my favorite partners. :):)

@ Michael

W is 3442, N 4405 and E 2443.

N has AK74, A1098 - Q10987. Or even AK54, A865, - Q10974.

IMO diamonds lead stands out. It can be only lead to beat the contract - or the lead does not matter cause partner is so strong he can beat contract himself


And this is just two of many examples/constructions. :)

Either partner can beat the contract by himself - or he is void in diamonds (4-4-0-5) and ask for a diamond lead. So I lead a diamond.

But then it will be difficult/impossible for partner to know what to do/bid when you have no rules but YOUR judgement?!

I took the spade finesse - and went one down.

West had Kx in spades and xx in hearts so spade to the ace and run hearts was the winning play.

But can anyone tell me best %-plan?
