She definitely needs more than two aces to make the initial takeout double.


I'm talking about opposite a ToX (where the 4 count is) on the hand you were talking about, Qxxx, x, KQxxx, KQx saying that hand shouldn't raise to 4. I was saying why not, and saying the hand I gave makes game.

If she doesn't expect to set 4 and needs me to have two perfectly placed aces to make game, she should sell out to 3.

Otherwise she has to be willing to bid on to 5 without me if her 4 pushes opponents to 4.

Beyond the fact that 4 is my favourite contract, I don't think it's a reasonable gamble to chance -300 to stop -140. I'd expect the room to be in 4 making with that auction and the hand you described her having.
