I don't like my dbl but I like pass even less. Partner is not supposed to reopen with 3+ s unless very strong. At least the dbl gives him a chance to rebid 1NT.

too good for a preemptive raise unless partner's opening is limited .

Standard is for pass to show some values. Since I can't find out all I need to know, just 6

That was Brad's (and my) question. And BTW, how do you invite in s?

4NT should show clubs and a major but probably 65. That's as close as I can get but I wouldn't argue with 5 or even pass.

I'm surprised neither opponent has bid so far but I won't wave the red flag in their faces. 4 is the bid most likely to get them to bid 4. 2NT will probably keep them out.

4 might work out but partner will always play you for a 5 bagger

You got me! I never considered the possibility that someone might bid s. But I'm not sure what that has to do with anything. Are you saying that you would open 1S because someone will bid hearts?

I agree, a takeout double is a takeout double.

Since when is 2 over 1NT not a reverse? The people who mentioned reversing were foreseeing this possibility.

If partner shows 2 and a void I think I would gamble 6.

Too good for 4. 2 then jump to 4 shows this hand.

RKC. If partner has 3 then I am going, otherwise 5.

I like 3 but I'm bidding 3 and then 5. Maybe the opponents believe the 5 level is for us.

I chose dbl but if LM applies then that's my choice.
