4 Gerber is useless here. Transfer to diamonds and then 6nt as invite might.

Yes Richard euphemistically called a psych exposer, but in four card major land. Not sure if it is best with five card majors. The modern use to show a solid suit with no stop never comes up. I would assume 4 natural with no agreement.

North likely figured a wheel had fallen off and passed awaiting developments. 4 is ambiguous but still majors and collected 4, at this point 5 is not a proper bid. North gave up and doubled. NS are innocent and must get restorative justice what ever that equates too and if I were directing I would have a private word with the 5 bidder.

I have one question how many hearts does 2 promise? For example KQx AKx AQxxxx x or similar 2 seems to me to be obvious. If you agree than 3 must show three card support.

Not sure if the king is encouraging but it is certainly the right card.

I am rarely in line with the laws but here they make sense. Yes I would have called the director since I hate pulling cards for no reason, and I have been told to play on in case I make a mechanical error–revoke etc. No I would not be in the position of deciding whether to admit an unseen revoke because I would not be playing it, if the director told me to play on I would and if the opps fail to notice serve them right.

Gregory 3 for me is a definite game try opposite what could be very little and maybe a doubleton heart. Not as strong as a second cue bid. Maybe AQxxx AKxxxx x x or similar.

Thanks seems like it should be employed in pairs for sure.

I am given to understand observed photons do not like being watched and won't then perform in quantum computers.

Mike how well do BOP doubles work–also are they the same as action doubles?

Bop can also mean hitting someone–call me old fashioned but I like that better. Earlier Barry suggested double as game try when they take all your space–that makes sense too.

He will think one and he does not have to be 5422. Further more I am not risking losing three diamonds.

Partner can work out my club shortage so 41h is positive enough as pass non forcing.

I recall being confronted with the following dummy after some obscure Vienna sequence that started with 1NT:

My partner led a spade and dummy was

AK
Ax
void
AKxxxxxxx

For a millisecond I considered the defense and then sanity returned. This dummy is not quite that crazy but its close.

There must be a reason for not opening 1 but I have no idea what it is. Passing 2NT is unreal. Must have overdosed on LSD.

Thanks Barry nicely explained, seems like a very good idea. Otherwise penalty ?

Ed-srry more questions if the opps ask me to play it out I can simply ask for a director? Does the director tor have to be consulted prior to playing on?
