      @margette absolutely agree. What the computer thought it was doing with a takeout double and a singleton heart is guesswork. The right bid was 3C which would make. I’m looking for a new partner.

    If I had been playing North I would have bid 3C instead of 2H as happened with maddogpoppy’s 5 card major bidding system. How can I play as North?

    • @colinjohn I often play at another seat, mostly north, but sometimes one of the others to test myself from another angle. When the next game shows & as quickly as you can, hold your finger on NORTH & underneath the card you’re asked if you want to play north. Yes or no. Click yes .

    That was much easier to bid if you’re playing strong twos (East can’t stick her oar in). It’s just one hand though… Some might say it proves how effective weak twos can be.at making life hard for the opposition.

    @colinjohn – I have never played from another seat but many do – so I looked around and ended up clicking on the bid at top of screen ie 2HS (fro the hand just played) and a message came up “Redeal fro N seat?” Yes /No. Good Luck with this.

    Think N should bid 3C, not X– or at least bid 3C after South’s(me) 2H– a human partner would not leave S in 2H with no support and all those clubs!

    Graeme — Please explain. Partner is asking me to bid. I passed the first time, so I bid a 5 card major. With 18 points and a singleton in Hearts, partner was obligated to bid at least 3 Clubs. Why did he leave me stranded in Hearts??

  11. 3 nt make easily playing in north seat. I counted 8 playing tricks, enough for an opening 2 bid. 2 clubs is too strong a bid so bid 2 spades & ended in 3 nt.

    A good lesson – when you are short of trumps no point in trying to draw them – only one down second time round –
