Good problem. I probably would have opened 3NT since this hand is impossible to describe anyway but now that I'm here, 2 is the only bid I can think of. BTW, no one discusses 3rd seat 3NT openings, it's just taken for granted that they are to play. If it gets doubled it's up to opener to run if he wants.

Thanks for the escape clause. I would pass at this vul anyway.

That hand is not possible on this auction, partner has some cards because South didn't double 2NT.

If partner had anything in clubs he would have passed the double. I would play 3 now a very good clubs.

Pass would show club support…

It's only one board, I think it's more likely that East has spades than points and I don't want partner passing a double just because he doesn't have a clear-cut bid.

3NT. I would never have bid 2 so I don't know what partner has. Since we don't play wk 2 he should play me for around 7-9 with 6 diamonds. I am better than that. If he is just trying to escape from 2, it worked.

I'm not as optimistic since I kind of overbid my hand previously. Partner is expecting more than a 6 count. If rho had passed I also would have passed. This auction is different than 1 - P - 1NT - P - 3

Add me to the “I don't understand the bidding” column.

RKC, whatever that happens to be in your system.

How about 4 card support and a hand that's too good for 2 and not good enough for 4? My hand has pretty good playing strength so I'm guessing big despite the stiff .

Actually I'm having a hard time figuring out what he can possibly have since he didn't open 2 but it's not because he has 4 spades. He must have a very good 5 bagger and about 10 hcp. That's about all I need to know. But maybe you're not playing weak 2?

I forgot to mention, we open all 18+ hcp hands if that would change your call.

Good BAM problem, 2 is a 2-way bid but 2 may be safer.

It sure looks like a 1NT opening to me.

I agree with your reasoning, that's why I bid 3 :) If partner has qx we can't get to the correct spot from the correct side anyway and if he has Qxx or better he might have bid 2NT rather than 3.

Why didn't I double 2?

I'm not sure that's the correct ruling. I would like the opportunity to defend 2 unless it's obvious that South had a clear-cut 3 bid without the misinformation. But then I guess we can call the director back after the hand. I admit to not being up to date with the rules after a 30 year layoff.
