Having difficulty working out partner's hand KJxxxx void Axxx Axx maybe or similar. If he had A in addition he can obviously bid seven. Can he have the nuts with say xx hearts? I always thought pass showed first round control. How about AKxxxx Ax Axx xx?

Strange I noticed that too :) I really do not like this hand, that said in my view you cannot then pass 2 in this auction.

Mike far be it from me to defend a psych against weak opps but do we know that was the case here? I doubt it will be repeated frequently but perhaps recorded in case this is regular.

You are right I paid for my education and I can tell you it was a short course. One reason for putting your head in the noose is lead directing and with type of overcall given the lead will probably cost.

From time to time different suggestions for a 1nt overcall have been made. The comic no-trump Gardener style , weak takeout double Simon style, and others no doubt but none have endured. The reason I suspect is natural overcall is more useful. FWIW I would never bid 2 over 1 on a bad five card suit and only very rarely with five good cards.

Seems like an impasse has arrived. Why not ask declarer which card he wants and move on? If I had been dummy I would have asked exactly that question.
