There is nothing to stop the responses being the same, showing the number of Kings held. However, it is possible to improve on this. A better arrangement is for West to respond to 5NT by cue-bidding his lowest side-suit King (while not by- passing six of the agreed trump suit). West bids 6D, showing the DK and denying the CK. East can now bid 7H. ——————————————————————————————————2/7—— Bridge diary update every Monday TO LIST YOUR EVENTS CALL 01734 351052 PLEASE GIVE AT LEAST A MONTH'S NOTICE Your Life Fun & Games Digitiser Grooves
