    There we go again. Murphy’s law that my best hand would be hand #11. Can you hear me screaming @vals?

    @tina
    This was my earlier question, is it good bidding to deny a fit in partners major suit and show your own 5 card minor?
    In this case there is a 4 card fit so why deny it and show clubs ?
    I realise it is forcing but you could end up in a minor contract rather than major if partner thinks your bid of 2 C means a lack of a heart fit .

      Great question. It is often a question of timing. With a weak hand, show your fit as soon as possible because you might not get a second chance and you don’t want to be bidding twice with a weak hand. That’ s an important principle.
      With a strong hand, you can afford to be more descriptive. Showing a second suit before supporting partner’s major can help partner make a decision about how high to go based on how good your secondary fit is. With in-between hands it depends who you ask but if you ask me there’s no right or wrong answer and therein lies the beauty of the game.
