Sandwich Cue-bid of Opener by Unpassed Hand
It is interesting that Bridge World Standard indicates that BOTH 2 and 2NT are for the other two suits in this auction. Perhaps 2 is for when you'd like partner to bid spades with equal suits and 2NT is for when you'd like partner to bid ...
David Parsons's bidding problem: KJ954 K9532 --- AQT
"DD" stands for "Double Dummy," Eric. I said it's a 97% make using a DD simulator.
David Parsons's bidding problem: 876 AKQJ --- QT9873
Yeah, I was in the same Common Game, and unfortunately led the A.
David Parsons's bidding problem: 876 AKQJ --- QT9873
I don't understand the 3 bidders. Partner has shown a minimum of 10 HCPs and 5 spades (or the equivalent), and with a minimum is expected to pass 3, the partnership thereby missing a likely game in spades. I've posted two other companion hands to this ...

What do you keep as Dummy's suit is run?

What do you keep as Dummy's suit is run?
Indeed, on the actual hand partner had: :875 :9653 :K3 :QJ95 Pitching a diamond is wrong, but so was bidding 4, which would go down four. 3NT makes 10 tricks and 4S makes 12 tricks as the cards lie.
What do you keep as Dummy's suit is run?
The only difference (that I can tell) is whether you want to signal an honor in diamonds or not.
