You hold: K983 Q87

Q72 J 5 3. Your partner opens one heart. The next player passes. What do you say?

ANSWER: Bid two hearts, confirming a trump suit and defining your strength. A response of one spade would do neither. True, if partner has four spades, a spade contract might be superior, but there is no way to determine that. If you respond one spade and he bids, say, two

clubs, your return to two hearts will suggest only a doubleton heart.
