Too good for 3NT since partner is unlimited, 3 should promise 65 and doesn't show anything extra. Since I do have a fitting card in hearts I will show that and maybe learn something more.

I am, can't speak for Eric. I'm not sure what it would say but it's forcing. I would take 3 for 3415 (or thereabouts) and too good to raise to 2 immediately. If partner wanted to be in game he could also just bid it.

I agree, if opener wanted me to bid again with this he would have made a forcing call.

My understanding of Last Train is that 4 would absolutely deny a spade control. Not happy about it but would bid 4.

I wish the 3 bidders would say what they plan to do next.

It's no fun if you insist on reading the problem.

Slow 4 so the opps will be sure to double. I hope it goes for 1100.

I voted for 2NT scrambling but I have changed my mind assuming I trust partner to bid 2NT scrambling when appropriate.

I don't think 4 here shows anything extra and I like my 3 small clubs.

If 2NT were for the minors I would bid it, but since it actually shows a balanced hand…

I think 5H should ask about hearts (you can't have 2 losing diamonds on this auction). Why not just ask him how many aces he has outside of diamonds by bidding 5? See above.

A complete guess, the odds favor partner having at least one non-diamond ace.

Yes, I need to re-word my comment, longer or clubs with equal. I have to be more careful with what I say…

There's no law that says partner has to have the A.

It's takeout of course. 2NT asks for opener's better minor.
