quiz-pic

Take the South hand below for the First Lesson Deal on Suit Play Overview:

♠ KQ1095  
♥ K54  
♦ KQ7  
♣ J2
 

Nobody is vulnerable and you are the Dealer. What is your opening bid?
 

 

Choose One:

Pass

1♠

1NT

2♠

Other

After you open 1♠, LHO Doubles and Partner bids 2NT as shown below. The grey around 2NT means "alertable/conventional."
Let's assume this is "Jordan 2NT." This is not Jacoby 2NT (which is when the opponents Pass). Jordan 2NT (used only after a double) means partner has a limit raise in spades. (In modern bridge, a jump to 3♠ after the double would be preemptive).

What is your next call?

Choose One:

Pass

3♠

3NT

4♠

Other

West leads the ♠Q.
