Difference in approach. I like to respond to advancer's new suit as if he/she had overcalled, 3 would be preemptive (in context). The 2H bid would show about 6 to 10-. Obviously pass would be no support and no interest in game.

Partner could have bid 2 with LR+

I hope it's not a double game swing, partner will not visualize this holding.

I wouldn't have bid 2 if it is GF. Now if I bid 4 it sounds slam invitational and 5 would show all of my cards in the minors. I think a better problem would be what to bid at your first opportunity.

I wouldn't have opened 4 but anyway I haven't got a clue what partner is doing. Thanks to rho I don't have to worry about it now.

Since 2 was asking, it seems like I should show my hand. It's sort of like responding to a takeout dbl when the opps bid a suit you were about to bid. And I do have a good 2 opener. Wouldn't a pass now say I have nothing to show?

I don't understand the 3+ comment, does this sequence imply a balanced hand?

You mean I should be cagey by trying to fool two opponents and only one partner?

Good point, I will have to pay more attention.

4 seems like waving a red flag at them.

For me it's either 2NT or pass and I don't like either but unless partner can bid stayman I think maybe 3NT has more chances than 4H.

I would like to be able to bid 1 since 2 is very dangerous but some partners can't take a joke. Pass is out of the question.

Peter and Frances, thanks. That's the information I was looking for. Pass is takeout and double is balanced. I seem to remember Meckstroth explaining how they played that to Paul Soloway a long time ago. It was just as you said.

Sorry YH, I meant pass by opener at this juncture.

I am assuming that pass would show a balanced hand. What is standard?

Why didn't I double 2? Now I think maybe partner is operating.
