3 for the lead, and partner may even have a stiff. When/if I jump in diamonds later partner will get the idea (I hope).

How would I bid a 5431 10 count? 4 also emphasizes the quality of the trump support but could very well get us overboard. Interesting problem.

I was worried about that also but what Richard says makes sense to me. I bid 3 as I was worried that 2 might be taken for a doubleton spade preference but I guess it doesn't matter since I was going to keycard later anyway. Or maybe 4NT should be taken as natural after just a spade preference… Anyway, I am sticking with 3.

LOL
Believe it or not, that's one of the reasons I bid it.

Well Steve, I bid 1 but if I were you I wouldn't consider that exemplary. I wouldn't do it if partner were an unpassed hand. BTW, who is your partner? I think I have played with him recently. :)

Yes, but I was thinking of 5 as a save. Partner could have an above-average playing strength hand, not quite good enough to reopen, which he would be forced to pass out if I pass.

I see your point but I thought the hearts should be better for 2 in fourth.

But isn't that compensated for by the solidity of your suit?

How would you bid xx KTxxxx Kx AKx? The given hand is the poster child for Gazzilli.

If partner had the Qx he should have shown it over 3NT. This is a misfit minimum, I hope we can make 4.

Disagree, see RReitman's comment above. Double is automatic.

Depends on what partner expects for a 2 bid, I would play it as strictly competitive.

It's what I would have bid without the double.

You stole my answer Richard. I assume you meant you expect spade shortage for the double.

Yeah, I rarely have an ace for a 2-level WJS. Actually, I think it is too good for the bid, could easily miss a game.

Don't be so wishy-washy Richard. :)

Pass = minimum without club support. Double would be penalty.
