We have a wonderful 8-card club suit and 13 HCP. Partner opens the bidding 1♠. We respond 2♣ and partner then bids 2♦. What should we bid now?

Bidding as responder is often tricky and responder’s second bid can be the trickiest of all for many of us.

With our singleton spade and two-card diamond suit, we don’t want to support either of those. If we bid clubs again, it isn’t forcing so we risk not going to game. There is Fourth Suit Forcing to find out more details from partner, but do we really need to know more about partner’s hand here? Or, should we just bid game with 3NT or 5♣?

What would your second bid as responder be?
