I'm not sure what 3 shows but it's forcing and denies good clubs.

How can I know what to do when your range for a WJS is that large? It should be a max of 5.

4NT or whatever is keycard for diamonds.

Agree, partner has denied a diamond control so he will need AKQxx or the equivalent plus the K and the A to make this a good slam. Since Last Train was not available, I haven't denied a diamond control so he can take another call with an appropriate hand.

If your call was 2NT, I almost did. But I like 3 better if this hand qualifies. Is it slightly invitational or LR+? I am adamantly opposed to 3 as being an underbid, but it may work out if Richard Fleet is your partner :)

Steve, you could have had another ace and it still might have been cold.

I agree with the 55 requirement for a double but what do you consider a suitable hand for partner to reopen if you pass? If he were 55 he would have used Michaels. What would you do if he doubled? It seems like you are leaving too much for partner to do.

I passed 1 and I have a big hand, in context.

4NT would definitely be minors, 4 would just be a big hand asking for a 4 card spade suit.

I don't understand. I have an opening hand so why shouldn't I open?

Oops, I didn't realize I was in 4th seat,I pass. Poster should have stated “3 PASSES TO YOU IN 4TH SEAT!!!”

5, partner may have a 5 card heart suit with a hand that was not good enough to bid 2.
