I like your “about me” :)

I don't see any reason why it should show diamonds, especially if you play that 3 previously would be only invitational.

It's tempting, but no.

I guess I'm nitpicking but I don't think your example is a minimum raise. Kxxx QTx xxxx xx would be but probably a lot of people wouldn't consider that a raise although I would. But it's certainly not if playing constructive raises.

Richard, the 4th heart looks like an extra trick to me.

Richard's comment made sense to me, TO CONDONE.

That's your prerogative but I expect partner to have 2 tricks to leave it in, either both in trump or a promote-able trump after leading his singleton heart. He certainly wouldn't leave it in with only one possible trump trick and a doubleton heart. He can hear the bidding too.

Using the LTC method which I learned, this is a 10 trick hand. I realize that may be an over-simplification but I don't carry a slide rule with me to the table.

Richard, that's true but it is not what you are playing. I believe this hand is the definition of mixed raise. What would you consider a mixed raise if not this?

UR>, didn't notice that. I was wondering why there were so many votes for pass. It would have been a better problem if I were not a passed hand.

To my knowledge no level of diamonds is forcing even after a double.

I would play 3 as merely asking for a club stop and unless partner shows one, a jump to 5 now still doesn't come close to describing the power of this hand. I think 6 is a good gamble.

Does 3 show extras (GB 2NT) or is it just competitive? If extras then 6, otherwise 5.

So much for playing 3 as forcing in this auction. If partner were allowed to pass then I would have no problem passing 3.

If partner leaves it in we will probably beat it.

I must have missed something, I didn't realize we were playing the “Eisenberg jump shift”. Since I didn't have that option available I opened 2 as that is more descriptive than jump-shifting after a 1 opening and is also just as, if not more, economical.

Either 65 or 75 so I bid 4.
