  1. Hand 1 is not worth a cue bid. The jacks are worthless and Qxx is an apparition. Bid 2C and see what happens. If need be compete to 3 C

  2. Your comments seem to indicate that a jump advance of a negative double 1D - (2C) - X - P - 3M is forcing. What happened to bidding the full value of your hand there? I would never bid only 2M with 16-17 points, I would make an invitational jump to 3M.

  3. first problem 2 harts is absolutely wrong much better 2 clubs after ic ih this is not forcing

    1. After winning the 3rd round of spades, if one tests the clubs first and the Jack doesn't fall, you MIGHT go down losing 3 spades, 1 club and 1 heart.
