They didn't have a convention card. They said that North explained correctly and South had forgoten the agreement.

Semi-strong balanced or semi-balanced hand (up to 17 hcp). Never with 64 or 55.

Congratulations. Perhaps the only team who can play, equally effectively, all together thanks to Bocchi's innovative system. Congratulations to team Cayne who lost just one match and to the other teams thanks to which we enjoyed a wonderful bridging week.

Playing TURBO is a piece of cake. 4NT by NORTH shows even keycards (at least 2 otherwise he would pass with 0) implying diamonds as trumps. Now 5 by SOUTH is a grand slam invitation showing control and promises all keycards and the Q (without the trump queen he would bid 5). NORTH now easily counts 13 tricks …at least

We are full of controls. 3 to allow responder to cue with a real maximum or to bid 3N otherwise.

Does 4 show club ctrl and asks for cue? If yes then 4. If 4 asks for ctrl in clubs then PASS which shows 2nd round ctrl (XX=1st round ctrl)

X shows any 18+ without 4. 2 does not promise solid suit.

The problems start with the 3 rebid. I think 2NT over 2 is much better despite the fit and the off-shape. The message is clear: I have either a strong balanced hand or a less strong hand but with a source of tricks (s here. If pd passes 2NT, 120 is close). In case we play a kind of Wolff-signoff, then 2NT is a must.
In our problem now.
If we need an average score: 4
If we need something more: Pass

Is there an undo card in my bidding box?

Two bids available at MP.
1. Pass: If we need an average score.
2. Double: If we need something more.

…and one bid with a special meaning:
3NT: I want to terminate the partnership.

I agree with Anant. Besides vulnerability indicates a 2,5-3,5 losers hand. Passing initially is a huge error. Would you ever bid 6 if K was A with this auction?

Depends on the system we play in order to be able to signoff at 3-level. If we play Lebenshol just over takeout doubles, then double. If we play a Lebenshol-like convention (e.g. Wolff-signoff) over 2NT, then 2NT (the most descriptive bid). Besides 2NT could be the only feasible contract or … the least of evils.
