Why did I balance with 1NT rather than double?

I'm rarely surprised when the games I bid go down :) Neither are my partners.

I would GF, especially if playing 3 puppet stayman. I don't like putting partner on the spot if I can make the decision myself. I'll happily take the heat if I'm wrong.

3, trying to stop the most dangerous lead.

If you exchanged a black pip for a heart, wouldn't that make this hand worth a game force?

The conditions stated that 2 would be LR+ and that is exactly what this hand is. It contains 3+ tricks in support of spades and is way too good for a mixed raise.

I have at least 3 tricks for partner so it is an invite.

It seems like, playing this approach, this situation should come up all the time and you would have an automatic bid (pass) for when it does.

I am a fan of the nebulous 2 response to a major so I would have responded 2 also but for a different reason.

I have always played 1 as natural and F1. I have never heard of the 56 treatment for 2.

I agree but am passing anyway, whatever it is. Once I double it's up to partner to bid game if it will make opposite this.

Did you have any other fit showing slam tries (maybe 3) available? 4 takes up all the below-game space.

I did abstain because this would never happen to me.

Update: I take it back, there was one sectional open pairs in the middle of a mall where it might have happened.
