bid 3 in the hope of getting out alive but I would not have opened and if I did would not choose 1.

Strange that a 1NT response shows clubs –who would credit that.

Yes agree 3 was better but now I think I am too good for 3–Cannot think of anything better than 3

In my view 2 is de facto game forcing. 2 should show 5 plus. 2 or 2 should show 5-4 with or without extras. 3 might not be four card support to cater for balanced hand with at least one major suit issue. 2nt bal with mar suits guarded and 3NT 18/19 balanced. That sad it is up to regular partnerships to modify these agreements.

No idea what the rules say but I have no issue if you ask her to check again.

The auction requires explanation -what was 2? 3?? FWIW why not open 1?

Looks like 6-4 with poor diamonds–enough fr me forcing or not.

I really dislike the initial dbl–I usually try and bid a great eight bagger. 6 was a wap bid–for those in the know a wild assed punt.

If you have never played rubber bridge then might not know how misconceived the 1NT response can be. There are those who think it is purely point driven with nothing to do with shape.

I agree its a little like fifth suit forcing, not 65 blacks. It keeps all doors open.

Why on earth would anyone bid 2 with a 4441 over 1? You maybe right about 3NT but not my way of playing.

I have seen a 2 overcall on this hand type which certainly worked on one occasion where the bidding continued dbl pass 3nt.

The auction is consistent with 6-4 and there are hands where 7 is a great contract and hands where even 3NT might struggle. The issue you have is 3 is not limited. It is worth saying that 3NT next shows a degree of doubt about the contract–no 3NT over 2.
