No choice if I want to continue playing with this partner.

Like take a save over 4? I bid 2 also, but with the knowledge that it could go wrong for the very reason you state.

LOTT says that if we can make ten tricks in clubs then they can make only 7 tricks in diamonds. I know that's assuming they have a 9 card fit and we an 8 card fit. Seems to fit here.

I agree, Bernard. But by the same token, what would you do with AQJTx x xx KQJTx? If you don't bid 4 now then you never get to show a one-loser 5 card suit. You can't start cuebidding when neither partner has even implied support for the other's suit.

So? This from the guy who ridicules constructing hands to prove a point.

No one is arguing that you should pass, neither Steve nor I passed. He simply said that it was close and I gave a hand that was unlikely to make 3. I think there is a case for passing at matchpoints but you could run one of your famous sims to prove me wrong. Of course I would have to appeal your interpretation of the results and submit your script to a panel of judges to guage accuracy.

I plan to bid 4 over 3 or 4 showing a hand too good to jump to 4 directly. Here's hoping I get the chance.

I don't understand partner's double of 2 when he couldn't bid over 1-dbl.

Is 4 necessarily agreeing hearts? Opener should not take it as a cuebid immediately but as possibly an advance cuebid. Anyway, I'm not taking any chances when I can greatly simplify this auction by bidding RKC. I know there is a very remote chance that we may lose 2 off the top, but there is a greater chance that 3 or 4 will muddy up the auction and create a disaster.

Since you don't know that 4 is a make, I would pass.

Yeah, you're right, I guess I was thinking about something else.

Switch the colors and it's a lot tougher at IMPs.

You're right of course. I was so mad about the stupid 2 bid when I should have bid 3 that I forgot he had bid 2. I should have abstained.

Pass, partner is making a game try. It may make 6 but he didn't ask.

On what hand would opener rebid 3 with only 4? Seems like that would promise at least 5.

Craig, I agree with your first sentence, the rest was redundant. :)
