Gino's Suggestion and Explanation


You should rebid 3NT!


The partnership does not hold 25 HCP. However, your hand consists of 8 quick tricks and a stopper in opponent's bid suit, spades. The chances to make 3NT are great. When you hold a solid minor suit - a quick tricks hand - you should always consider bidding 3NT.

When bidding NT never worry about suits unbid by the opponents such as hearts or clubs. Hope that partner holds a stopper in these suits or that the opponents would not attack these suits. Experience shows that most of the time opponents will attack the suits they have bid.
