You’re South, not vulnerable. West (dealer) passes and your partner opens 1D. East passes. What do you bid? Please respond in comments section below.
North is dealer and passes. East opens 1D. What do you bid? I really don’t know. Please respond in comments section below.
Here’s what my Bot and I did. My partner passed and East bid 1D.
Options 1: Double and then plan to bid 2NT at the next opportunity showing a stopper in diamonds and 17+ points. But I don’t like my clubs for NT and a double implies I have a minimum of 3 cards in all the unbid suits. Same problem if I overcall 1NT showing 15-17 points.
Option 2: Overcall 1S even though I only have 4 spades. Audrey Grants says that “we might occasionally overcall at the one level with a strong four-card suit.” Unfortunately, I read this after the hand and chose 1S thinking I could rebid the hearts on the next round.
My partner, thinking I had 4 spades bid 2S. Sorry, I can’t remember what we made but I did go for the cross-ruffing since I had so many losers in clubs. I loose a club, diamond and spade for sure.
