What do you bid on the West hand when North has opened 1♣ and South has responded with 1♠? Well, there are various options, like double or 2NT, both asking for the other two suits, or a cue-bid of either 2♣ or 2♠. When this hand was played in a teams match the other night, both Wests chose 2NT, over which both Norths went straight to 4♠. One East was distinctly pusillanimous and passed, the resulting contract being just 5♦, NS wisely passing. In the other room, East fancied his holdings in the red suits and bid 5♦, raised to 6♦ by West…….and North doubled. Oh dear.
