Hand of the week

What is the bidding after first three bids?

 

 

 

East now bids 2 Hearts.

The use of the 4th suit is FORCING to game.

West now  bids 3 Diamonds to show a minimum of 5 cards in Diamonds and Spades.

.East encourages Diamonds by bidding 4 Diamonds.

West knows East has a game-going hand with Diamonds, and, with lovely shape, bids 4 No Trumps to ask for Aces.

With 2 Aces, East bids 5 Hearts, and East can safely bid the excellent 6 Diamonds.

 

 

 

The use of the 4th suit is FORCING to game

West's bid of 3D is ongoing and East can bid 4D knowing the bidding won't stop

West knows East has a game going hand with Diamonds and with the lovely shape asks for Aces

With 2 in the East hand West can bid 6 Diamonds
