RR, I agree but I don't want to push the opps into what I am afraid is a cold 4.

At this level opposite a passed hand? I suppose, maybe, but if you're really playing him for that, shouldn't you be saving? Can you give me an example hand? Everyone disagrees with me but I really don't see it.

I think that 3 over 2, since it is a free bid, would be considered a raise. Not sure I understand your comment, are you just pimping me? :)

If this isn't worth a reverse I don't know what is. If you're worried about 4 coming back to you, opening 1 won't solve that problem.

I agree completely with the abstainers but since I am here I am bidding 4. I thought about 5 but decided I didn't want to make two knucklehead bids on one hand.

Do the passers not believe that a double of 4 is penalty? Or do they think it is making? Something funny is going on here and I trust my partner.

With only poor to medium 3 card support in either major and a good alternative to double I'm surprised that 4, up to now, chose it.

I'm having trouble coming up with possible hands for partner but I could hardly have better cards on the auction. He must have a hand that was too good for 4 over 3.

If partner has what I expect, 6-5, then I don't think we can beat 4 and I plan to bid 5 if they bid it. Partner will know that I have 4-4 since with only 3 hearts and a bad hand I would have just raised diamonds.

Since I don't know you it really doesn't matter much.

Partner has a diamond stack and a good hand, could be short in hearts. This is not the sort of auction where you balance vul with a light takeout double.

No, I meant 2, that's where I would like to play.

I can't imagine bidding 1 with this hand but that's just me.

Yes, it's better to guess and be wrong than to put partner under that kind of pressure so I would also take it as club asking.

5. If partner has the hoped for stiff spade it might make. Also 4 might make and we may only be off one. The tank might mean anything.
