Yes, I would have bid 3 over 2

I might even go passive here if I knew how. Maybe a low heart IS passive. And besides, if you don't lead a heart what are you leading when you get back in? A non-heart lead is just giving up.

What will the 1'ers bid over 1? Don't tell me 2. I'd definitely in the open the longer minor camp but this is an exception.

Yes, I don't think 2 is aggressive at all.

I have 2 tricks, partner has 8. For the math-challenged, that makes 10.

I would treat it as a normal weak 2 so double would expose a spade psych. I agree with Marko that 3 would show much better spades.

How about 2NT?

I would need a more complete description of the 4 bid. Is it stronger than opening 1 and rebidding 4 over a minimum response? What's a typical hand? And I agree with Richard that the state of the match makes no difference since I don't know how they would bid this at the other table.

Bad thing happen to me when I pass on an opening hand that is short in the opponent's suit.

That's interesting, I hadn't thought of it. Two other people agree with you. Would you normally open 1 on 4432 hands?

There must be something wrong here, the bidding looks out of sync.

With all the intermediates and a source of tricks I think this one is a pretty clear-cut 3NT.

I was thinking that a typical hand for an immediate 4 bid would be something like Kxxxxx Kxx xxx x, a hand that would definitely want to take a shot at 4 but has no slam aspirations unless partner has a big hand.

Paul, yes that is the question and I should have stated that. What I wanted was a general plan of action. Would you sign off in game, make a slam try or force to slam?

I really don't think 16 highs is enough to make a slam try here, especially at the risk of causing confusion.

Although I don't play 2 as necessarily constructive I expect partner to raise with a suitable hand.

Assuming partner would have passed if not interested in game.

Cuebid followed by 4 to show values.

When I saw a vote for 1 I had to look. As expected…
