This interesting question was sent in to us by Chris, aka Spungee, and we thought it’d be fun to open it up for discussion.
I have an interesting hand to bid today from club bridge, and wondered if it would be of interest to SBC to discuss. We play Standard American – 5 card majors. My partner opens 1♥, my RHO passes.
My first instinct was to follow our conventions and show preference to her 5-card suit – and bid 2♥, but with only 6 combined hearts? If I bid 3♣ she would think I had at least 10 HCP and probably go to game in 3NT.
All thoughts welcome. I won’t tell you what I did and the outcome, or the other hands, at this stage!
Thank you, Chris, for sharing this fun question. If anyone else has a good trivia question or challenge hand, please send it our way! You can try making it using the Hand Creator and then tag @skybridgeclub in a comment after you play the hand.
This question is more about the bidding than the card play. If you’d like to bid it and play it yourself, you can do so here:
