“Their 4NT would show 2 places to play” LOL

Well, it's a lot better than some of the light openers I've seen from Precision players.

Are the 3 bidders inviting or preempting? I assume inviting.

I think that's one of the reasons why the game is so much tougher today than in the past, when you could always rely on the opponents' bidding. (good opponents, that is)

But I am much more likely to get doubled since my hearts are so weak, therefore I don't even have an automatic bid over a strong NT IMO.
What's the great shape? Doesn't it imply 55?
How would partner show a 3 card invite, or is there such a thing?

Is double played as a 4-suit takeout?

1, just a guess since I don't play precision.

Good point Richard, partner is obviously void in diamonds. But then why isn't 7NT better than 7? Could he also be void in hearts?

Never mind, I just read all the responses where this point is made several times.

Seems like an impossible rebid problem if opened 1. Of course, you could reverse but that is a slight overbid IMO.

Actually, there is usually no “correct” answer to any of these problems. Hence the name, “problem”.

Good point. If it is then that's my vote, to be followed by 4 over 3 level rebid. Otherwise 2.

Is that a 2nd poll or a correction?

“2♦: GF Stayman (you probably don't want to bid this).”

Really? You can't intimidate me! :)
If I had opened and partner invited (basically what this auction amounts to), I would certainly accept.

Now I wish I had opened 1NT and maybe it is the best opening since this is not matchpoints.

Partner will probably lead a diamond (unless it is a mobot). Then I can judge what to shift to. All should be well.

At first I thought it was a 15-17 NT, in which case I would pass since I have extra, but here I do have a little extra.

I meant since I DON'T have extra over a strong NT, sorry.

It's not clear that they can make all that much when 1st seat opened a NV preempt.
