I don't care much for pass, either.

Isn't this a little heavy for a 3rd (or any) seat wk2? Oh, never mind, didn't notice the conditions.

I chose 3 because it may be difficult (should the opps make it so) to show my spade shortness later. I will pull 3NT OR 4 to the minimum number of clubs to show a strong invitation to slam with a lack of heart control.

I didn't mean that 3 was rolling the dice within the confines of your approach, just that the approach is rolling the dice compared to most players' approaches. That is not meant as a comment on the merits of your approach.

Would that imply 4333?

I thought about that but what route? The shape is not right for an invite and I'm too good for a preemptive raise. It's perfect for a mixed raise but how do I do that? And OBTW, I might buy it for 2S.

KD, I agree. That's why I don't play it except at the 2 level.

When you roll the dice with these sort of preempts you have to stick by your guns. For all you know your partner might have 5 good hearts. It's up to him to take a save.

Lot's of controls, I'll take a shot at it.

I play non-leaping michaels here.

I don't really like 3 all that much but there are hands where we are cold for 3 and partner won't compete with only 5 spades. And who knows, maybe they won't double and it's only down 1.

I don't think partner would have taken a call over 3NT with that hand. I would take 4 as a slam try even though it's inconsistent with the 2 call. I meant 4NT as RKC since diamonds were agreed but apparently some thought it was to play.

2 forced on me by the system, I would prefer 2NT if forcing but the hand is too good for 3NT. There is a UI problem unless 2 is perfectly in tempo.

pass 2. I am assuming partner can break the relay with a good hand.

1NT IS between 1 and 2 :)

I know I'm being inconsistent since I bid 1NT in the earlier poll but that was because I didn't think it would go this way. As it is, I am happy to pass 1 doubled. If they never make a doubled contract against you then…
