This makes some sense but if you're wrong and partner has a club loser, 6NTX is going for a telephone number. Still, I think you are probably right.

I don't expect it to make but I don't see a better spot. Partner did pass the double.

I don't think 3 would have been forcing, just denying a heart stopper.

Partner couldn't bid more than 2 and I have about the worst I could have for this bidding.

Well, maybe if partner bids some number of diamonds?

I don't play fit jumps but is it normal to make the bid with a bad suit?

4, I don't see the problem. I have a good hand for competing in diamonds and partner's hesitation is in tempo after a jump raise. The problem would have occurred if partner had made a quick pass.

I actually prefer double also and don't even think 3 is forcing, just competitive with 5 hearts in this auction. I was just trying to interpret his comment about the methods in play.

Over a 1 response I'll just have to manufacture a 2 reverse.

Martin, did you read poster's comments? My take was that a double would deny 4 hearts and that partner would be likely to pass the double without a clear bid, but maybe I misunderstood.

I would like to see a sim, I suspect that partner would pass a double a significant amount of the time. Also, I would play 3 to be a 2 bid, only better, which is what we have.

I assume that with 9 tricks partner would have bid game.

I'm a little nervous about giving partner the opportunity of passing if I double and this hand is too good for 2 which would show this hand without the A and the void.

And I'm not sure what conservatism at vulnerability has to do with it.

Depends on partnership agreement as to whether pass says I would have passed without the redouble. Anyone want to weigh in on what is standard?

4 showed a club control without wasted values in spades, which 3NT would have shown.

If so then 3.

I guess so if you play it over cue bids, which makes sense.

I have to settle for 4 but may very well miss a laydown slam.

I take this to mean that 3 is forcing here and promises only 4 hearts. 3 seems obvious to me, but if not forcing or promising 5 hearts, then double.
