who worries about what partner is up to? We have only one bid which is four clubs.

A similar hand but with a side ace cost us a big pairs event. I bid 5 and partner with a big hand and four small spades bid six. We had two spade losers. After a long discussion the consensus was that double strongly suggested you wanted to bid 5.

In my view, apart from not playing this convention, it seems your best shot is 6. Whatever partner thought is not important, and I do not think you are obliged to pass.

both double and 2 are equivalent to writing a suicide note.

That is nonsense. Dec will no touch trumps and will likely make 6/7 tricks.

two issues about passing your spades are not solid and ou may miss game or even slam.

Since I thoroughly dislike two level overcalls on five card suits this is not a problem for me.

Would be normal to dbl with three suits–assuming michaels and unt are being used then to play makes sense.

If you make the sensible arrangement that two of either major is 4 plus you deal with hands like this and all 4441.

I qualify and would not play in a senior event. Ageist nonsense.

Doing this gained him nothing in monetary terms or kudos. In Chinese culture–well at least some ten years ago–using another's work was considered a tribute. Anything this author did or did not do caused no one any harm.

Leave aside the various gadgets common sense indicates 3 here,on the hand you offer above it should raise 1 to 3 without competition so bidding 4¬h is a margina; stretch. For all i know 41s is a spread and 5 a save. If yu pass and 4 gets back to you it will not give you that feel good factor.

I prefer 3 over 3 to see what happens and conserve space. As it went i think 4 was suggesting a place to play and does not deny a diamond control. It also suggests a minimum force. 4 would be the cue bid which ups the ante. I am forced to abstain because I want to cue 4 which is not systemic.
