So my partner made a negative dbl over 2 with a void? Could it be that you just didn't think of it?

I think 3 shows this hand except for the stopper. I don't mind whether partner passes or bids 3NT.

Why didn't I double 5?

Maybe my 4 bid will discourage a lead against 6

How can partner not have a solid suit when I have this much? He can't have AQJxxx.. in s and an outside entry. Therefore he can't have spades.

We don't have to have more than an 8 card fit and partner didn't take action over 2. Partner will most likely leave it in and we will be going for a 1 trick set. I don't like the odds.

I considered 5 but didn't think it was good enough to invite a grand. If it goes P P 6 I can pass to show 1st round control. If 6 gets passed out I am satisfied.

I'm supposed to make a penalty double with this hand so why wouldn't I? A pass is unacceptable but 3NT is a possibility.

I assume the doublers are hoping partner can either pass (but that is unlikely when I hold 3 s) or bid 3NT in which case it should be played from my side. I think the odds favor pass.

I would pass if I were on lead to lead a .

Is partner allowed to bid 4 over 3 with a minimum? What does it take to bid 3NT? I am not familiar with non-serious.

The 19 hcp is an illusion. You have 5 top losers and partner needs to cover 2 of these to make 4. He will accept or at least cooperate over a raise to 2 with that hand since he could have only 3 s and nothing on this bidding. Why put the partscore in jeopardy by bidding 3?

All of my cards are working and I have ruffing value in s. I suppose 5 could go down with bad breaks but it is more likely to make 6 than go off in 5. I think it would be lack of trust to not bid 4.

A little heavy for 2 the way I play, I will double planning to rebid min number of NT.

I would SERIOUSly like to be playing some sort of 3NT bid over 3 so I would have some idea of what to do.

Same here. I suppose there may be better constructs but that's the one I use.

I agree with Richard since the priority in this sequence is to protect a penalty pass.

I bid 2 but I like Steve's reasoning
