What are the passers planning to do when/if partner reopens with dbl?

I would have redoubled 4NT with that hand to show cards. I think the 5 bid shows club support but not a very good hand.

Actually, IMO it's a very good 2 bid, ~3 tricks for partner. I'm not too worried about lack of defense since the opponents have already had 2 chances to come in.

David, I knew a pair back in my student union days who played a 2-way jump raise of opener's major. When asked what it was, they would say it was weak if the LHO of the the opening bidder hesitated, otherwise limit.

So would I, and probably most of the commenters here.

That was kind of a play on DONT. Sorry, didn't realize someone might take it seriously.

Mark, did someone actually bid 5 opposite what might have been a weak 3rd seat preempt? I would request surveillance of that pair for the foreseeable future.

Martin, are you saying that you would not have opened 1NT? I think doubling now and not abstaining is condoning the 1 opening.

Craig, what do you do when you just have a good hand with no convenient bid? Most times on this auction their suit won't be your best suit.

Paul, maybe that's one of the reasons you don't fall into the “excellent partner” category.

Sorry, you are right. I rarely read those long explanations.

I will settle for finding a club or a diamond fit.

I would have rebid 3 over 2 and I certainly wouldn't have bid diamonds twice and hearts only once but that may not have solved all of my problems.

What options did partner have over 1NT?

Since I have what looks like more offense than defense I'll compete.

It's certainly good enough for double but I bid 1 on the off chance that partner might pass the double.
