My least favorite defense to 1NT.

I'm afraid of defending 2 if I pass. Maybe something good will happen (not P P P) if I double.

Would have bid 4 instead of dbl, especially if playing non-leaping Michaels but even if not.

I don't understand the 1 bidders, 1 gives you 2 chances to find a major suit fit. Bidding 1 means you have to show a legitimate response to get both suits in.

Even free thinkers sometimes have their bids.

At the table I bid 2 because I thought it was the obvious bid but that doesn't mean I was ecstatic about it. If there were a different bid that showed this hand then I would have chosen it. I'm not sure I understand the comment “Why are you worried…” The answer to that would seem obvious to the most casual observer.

Yes, but not with double. The only time partner passes is when holding 3+ diamonds.

This is a lot better than my typical NV vs V 2 bid so I dbl. 2C bid normally shows at least as many clubs as the other suit.

At least if the club is wrong I'll have company.

It's embarrassing being in 6 off 2 trump tricks.

Since when is a 5 loser hand with a good 7 bagger a minimum rebid?

That's what I thought at the table, probably less than 15 but around there.

Yes Jyri, Gazzilli would definitely help. At least now you wouldn't have to worry about being left in 2. Now 2 over 2 would show 17+ with 3 spades.

3 is going to make the rest of the auction hard to handle and the diamonds aren't all that great opposite a singleton.

My partners would expect me to bid game on this hand and would take that into consideration when deciding whether to accept a game try.

No, sorry, I meant to bid 3. I have actually done that (passed) at the table after a long tank.

No, just trying to avoid a 10% contract. Allstate would do.
