The first example was that of Zia Mahmood, as recorded in Larry Cohen's "To Bid or Not to Bid." Hearing his partner bid one spade, Zia raised, with both sides vulnerable, holding
♠ K974 ♡ 82 ♢ 8652 ♣ 432
Trying to "ape" this behavior with only us vulnerable, I raised partner's one heart to two hearts with
♠ 9532 ♡ T872 ♢ 653 ♣ k6
That is, four trumps and a side king.
Zia's partner bid and made four spades with
♠ AJT63 ♡ K93 ♢ Void ♣ AQJT9
My partner bid four hearts and went down three with a hand that looks to me to be about the same strength as the one Zia's partner held.
♠ AQ7 ♡ AQJ43 ♢ K987 ♣ 8
Given that Zia was right to raise his partner, was I wrong to raise mine? If I was wrong, was it because my king was located outside, rather than inside, my partner's suit?
