“I do feel the pair in question SHOULD…..” Should seems to imply ethics? Is your point about obligation?

This is a bit off topic. Partner was somewhat concerned when I went down 1400 in, what I thought was, a reasonable 3 heart preempt. I must have played it better because minus 1700 at other table. Lesson I usually fail…. don't react to results. Lesson number two…. our teammates defended better. I keep forgetting we have teammates :)

Kibitzed a Vanderbilt match years ago. 170, 170 push…..multi 2d opening both tables. Responder with 17 points, great diamonds and heart void passed. The other respender was disciplined and bid 2 hearts making 4.

North probably bid 1NT with 4 spades, I think that is the modern approach?

Full disclosure…. I wasn't at the table. I know the players involved. That's how I heard about the hand. I just talked to the 2NT bidder on the phone. He simply thought 2NT was the right bid. It was just one of those things…..rub of the green….whatever allusion bridge players suffer through :)

The partnership has a home brewed system. I believe 1NT does not deny a four card major and promises at least eleven points. In that context the 2NT bid makes some sense, I guess? I know that the one diamond opening promises at least 5 diamonds. I don't know for sure about 1NT so it is hard to comment. This hand caught my attention because an (awful bid) maybe wasn't so awful in their system.

I will follow up with the rest of the auction, but it pains me.
