RHO opens 3. What's your plan?
While I've never seen anyone play this,
perhaps it'd be nice to have the following
4 = diamonds and a major, 4 = majors.
What do you think?
- none vul, you hold

a) would you have bid 1NT?
b) would you have doubled?
c) what do you do now?
d) if partner had passed the double,
what would you have led?
Does it matter that partner had a (Good/)Bad 2NT
available at his previous turn?
- favorable, you hold, playing 12-14 1NT
Kx Kx AJ109xx Kxx
2NT! = fewer than 4 diamonds, invitational values,
balanced, at most 3 spades, at most 4 hearts.
RHO leads the Q out of turn.
a) would you have bid 1?
b) would you have bid 1NT?
c) would you have bid 3NT?
d) you have five choices after the lead.
Which do you choose?
- accept the lead, put down the
dummy, and let partner play the hand
- accept the lead, partner puts
down the dummy, life continues
- bar a spade lead
- require a spade lead from the correct hand
- make the Q a penalty card.
- unfavorable, you hold
