Red / White - IMPs - long matches

(1) - 1 - (pass) - ?

3 is a mixed raise
3 is preemptive

Everything else is standard.

Your choice?

I can't imagine why anyone would want to not show a mixed raise on this. A more interesting question would have been - what do you bid if you don't have a mixed raise?

Not sure I know how to make a contructive raise of an overcall.

Reverse the red honors and I like 3H mixed. Will try the preempt with this one. Pard is vulnerable, too; he might bid 4 anyway.

Mixed raise. If I didn't have that available I'd go for 3 as I can't be that crazy at r/w.

the Term "mixed" raise means something different to me, apparently. I use the term to describe a responding or advancing hand, which has enough trump support for a "lawful" jump raise, but more strength than a preempt and less than a game invite.

I don't believe the stiff king in a suit bid on my left and two stranded queens outside the trump suit qualifies.

So does the term "high card points".

I don't get it.

How is this hand not a textbook mixed raise?
That's impossible. No one can give more than one hundred percent. By definition that is the most anyone can give.

Hi,

It is certainly not inv., and I wont bid game, it is not clear, that they have
anything, so it is either preemptive or mixed, and I would go with mixed,
since preemptive could be whole lot weaker.

With kind regards

So Phil, was this for a bet, or did someone's opinion differ from the collective mind that is the BBO forums?

I didn't think it was 'textbook' at all, but I thought it was a reasonable MR. Wanted to backcheck this.

'Textbook' to me is Q9xx xx AQxx xxx.

Maybe we read different books.

Maybe you and I are the only ones who read that book. Hmm, four trumps. Too strong for a 3S preempt. Too weak for a L.R. Hence, mixed.

Perhaps the people who declared the other hand unanimous, or the collective mind of BBO, have a different idea of what a mixed raise is than those of us who have no collective mind. But, maybe it does illustrate another topic worthy of discussion in advance with partner --since partner's agreement is all that matters.
