“Could opener hold, e.g. K-xxx-AKQJx-AQJT ?”
That's a 5 loser hand, not a GF, so no. I would rebid 2, discounting the K and xxx. And if I bid 3, after a long day, I would certainly apologize to partner when he bid the slam.

Thanks Patrick, I'll keep that in mind if I ever play against you.

Did hearts go 43 (or 52 with doubleton on declarer's left) or Qx in either hand?

I would also mean it that way if I were a passed hand but not here. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Craig, why would you bring all of that up unless you don't think that this hand is good enough to bid 5? I see what you are saying but geez Louise!

And I want a diamond lead so that I can find the correct switch.

Paul, it makes staying up to read these almost as much fun as watching the impeachment hearings.

Yeah, since if you bid 1 you can always run back to diamonds if you get in trouble.

Switch the majors and I would probably bid 1 but here 2. I have an 8 trick hand and am willing to bid spades next in most situations.

Yes, with my partner 3 would be splinter so 4 is exclusion for diamonds.

After giving the bidding a second look I will change my analysis since my bid made no sense at all. I thought the bidding was 1 p 2 p 4. Now kickback makes sense if you are playing it, otherwise it is a splinter. I am therefore changing my bid from 4 to 5.

Do you open all 9 counts? I might agree at IMP but not at BAM.

Why not just take the poster's comments at face value? Responder has already shown a GF so 3 is encouraging. Surely you are safe at the 5 level. I might pass if we were playing Last Train but it wasn't mentioned so I am hoping partner has at least one keycard. It is being generous to say that partner has misbid if we go down in 5.

Only if I have a partner who doesn't like to compete at MP, NV.

Thanks for the reference, John:) If someone didn't recognize that quote then they wouldn't recognize the movie or the actor.

Come on Richard, say you wouldn't overcall. Oh, too late.

KD, if he has that hand, what's the harm in asking for a spade control with 5? 5 is kind of a nothing bid when 5 says exactly what you need to say. There's no way partner has 3 small spades.
