bala1954 wrote Well, have been trying to wear my big girl pants by eschewing hints - but this one stumped me, so used hint, and it worked. Maybe will remember next time...

Bajir wrote This is such a great way to use the hints @bala1954. Have been trying to do the same... just checking a hint when I'm confused or unsure and then deciding if it worth listening to. Most often I find myself in need of a hint when I am the opener and rebidding.
