YOUR BRIDGE QUERIES ANSWERED – PROBLEM 187

Your Bridge Queries Answered – Problem 187

North, the dealer, passed.  I was East and held:

  • spade K Q 8 5
  • heart 5
  • diamond Q J 5 3 2
  • club A J 3

and opened 1 diam.
 
My partner had:

  • spade A J 4
  • heart Q 9 7 2
  • diamond K 8
  • club 10 8 4 2

and bid 1 heart.
 
I rebid 1 spade, and my partner passed because she said that if I had 12 to 14 pts I would have opened 1NT, and if I had 15 points I would have rebid 1NT.
 
We made 3 spades, which was a good score, and I guess you cannot criticize a good score.  But what if I had held 6 diam. and 4 spades and no hearts?   Should she have responded 2NT at her second turn to bid, or was leaving it in 1 spade the best thing to do?

How would you answer this query?
