Playing gazzilli do you respond to 1 with this hand ?


Does it matter if you are not a passed hand ?

I respond 1NT and then bid 3 if partner continues with 2.
It makes no difference that I am a passed hand.

Over partner's 1 opener in any position, I rank
1. Pass = NAT. Might bid if opponents compete.
2. 1N = NAT. If partner rebids 2 (Gazzilli) then you might bid 3 or even 2N (if the latter shows both minors).

Interesting no one has considered 2 which by a passed hand I wouldn't have thought needed many values and just a decent diamond suit and would be readily passable?

Two diamonds would need a lot more values for me - normally around 8-10(11) HCP with a decent 5-card suit (or 6-card suit if, like me, you do not have a weak two diamonds opening bid available) and no fit.

So basically, by passing in first seat I committed to playing in 3 anyway when partner has a spade suit, while giving opponents a free run when he doesn't?
Sign me up for a weak 2 opening bid in first seat, and 3 if the former isn't available.

If I was somehow barred from opening, I strongly agree with Nigel - I don't see why we can expect to take three more tricks in diamonds than in spades, and if I pass, we might still get out of having to declare any contract.
