I play 4th suit forcing with my bridge partner and this works out well.
Last night however our oponent said our 1nt response denied majors ...let me explain
I opened 1club
partner replied 1 diamond
I replied 1 heart
Partner replied 1NT
We ended up making a better contract than the others who were in diamonds.
My partners 1NT bid told me she was covered in spades (which she was). If she has replied 1spade then she would have been asking me if I was covered in spades which I wasnt and would have replied 2 Diamonds as I had 5 of them.
The opponents lead was a spade and she said my partner denied having a major with her 1NT response. I am curious to what everyone else thinks about this bidding, did we do something illegal in Bridge bidding terms or was she just upset she lead the wrong suit and we made the contract as a result?
