why does gib cuebid?
for a passed hand is good
but only spot to play is diamonds, just bid 3D
then I pass or bid on
gib likes to cue for no reason\then doesn't cue when right
Sarcasm is a state of mind

Yes the Cue absolutely illogical, like answering a question with a question.

When South Doubles it is forcing North for more information, especially looking for 4-4 in the unbid major. But he is blind to Norths hand, and needs to know Norths strength and long suits. The last thing he needs is a cue bid, that tells absolutely nothing and reverts control back to the blind hand who should not be making these decisions.
