Your Bridge Queries Answered – Problem 192

Hi Ron,

Opponent bid 1 and I doubled.

Partner held

  • spade 7 6 4
  • heart J 10 7 5
  • diamond 9
  • club Q 8 7 6 3

and replied 2

1. Should partner show her 4-card heart suit before the club suit?   Is it better to show a 4-card major before a 5-card minor if partner uses a takeout double?   

2. If partner had something like

  • spade 7 6 4
  • heart J 10 7
  • diamond 9 5
  • club Q 8 7 6 3

Should partner bid her 3-card heart suit or bid 2 clubs?

Cheers
