Hand of the week

How do you bid this hand?

When you pick up the East hand how do you avoid some expression of astonishment either verbal or facial?

What do you open?

Do you start with 1D and hope that partner or the opposition bid?

Or do you start with a forcing bid like 2C (Acol) or 2D (Benji Acol)?

Or do you start with 6D?

Forcing bids make it difficult to find a Heart fit if there is one. 6D equally miises the heart fit.

1D is a better start because there are a lot of spades and clubs in the other hands and there are 25 points left as well, so it is very unlikely that you will be left to play in 1D. Also it gives partner a chance to bid Hearts.

 

Probable bidding:

N                                            E                                                        S                                              W
