I can either a) Double planning to bid spades over 4m to offer a choice of black suits or b) Bid 3NT cause we can count many tricks.

I agree with pass and 2, and I'm pretty comfortable passing now.

He should probably pull with a doubleton given our expected club length is around 4.

Partner is more likely to have a club void than a diamond void, but it shouldn't matter much anyways.

West obviously had a light opener given our hand. If we properly bid 3NT over the double, West's basis for the opener (probably a second suit) will remain undisclosed to East.

1NT here is a hand that values to 16-18, not a bad 14.

It's definitely not a safe gamble if partner's major is hearts and you are also quite unlikely to beat 1NTx (probably around 20%). -380 or -580 are both quite possible, and that's probably 7-10 IMP's out.

If partner had a 10-count and a stiff heart, he already probably should have acted.

Probably 4 is best over that, that should allow partner to evaluate pretty decently.

True. 2-2-2-2-3 seems like a safe way of looking for a fit and then bailing out.

It's better to play that 2NT is strongish and asking, 3 is p/c for the unknown minor and 3 is an invite in hearts.

That would be my choice also.

Preemptive, but I'd also be happy enough to raise opposite a partner willing to bid to the 3-level vul against not. AQJxxxx x x Qxxx might be a typical hand (again, at these colors, can be lighter if non-vul).

The one problem I have is that there used to be a way to get to the old version, which I greatly prefer. Now there seems to be none.

2 rebid is still being imposed on me when it's clearly not bridge.

Natural, not forward-going.

4 over 4m will suggest a more flexible handtype. We can't play in 3 anymore, but it's worth investing a level over preempts to get to the right strain.

I think partner should definitely cooperate with that hand over 4, probably with a 4 cuebid.

I could have the same hand w/o the Q to use drury here, definitely have to cooperate.

2 over 1; no second choice.
