Way too much for me to give up, having 4 natural.
I'm going to let the opps possibly not even real psych take away our constructive bidding?

Passing unappealing?
May be more appealing than playing 3N.
Where we may have only one ugly club trick.
Are the rest of the tricks in partner's hand?

I suggest that the rule makers go to work long and hard on LA's. When it is not allowed to be used. Get rid of it every place where it can be replaced with a simple adjustment. And every place where it is too easy for it to come under dispute. People can't even come up with “demonstrably indicated”.

Using UI is not an LA.
You must never in your wildest dreams consider freely bidding 5. Your comments about partner's hand being weak are self-serving and not allowed to justify doing something.

I'm calling 2 wrong, shortsighted, among other adjectives.
With partner opening the bidding, and having likely 8 tricks, 6/7 clubs should be in the air, not 3N.

It is 100% correct in 2/1 that you can bid 3 forcing to game vs other systems where you might make an artificial call, hoping that is more forcing later.

In true 2/1, a next bid of 4 is forcing to game. Maybe partner can take over with keycard.

Depending how the auction goes after 3, I might prefer going down than tie bad slam bidding mtchptrs in 3N.

Mtchpts, I play 3N can be 3 hearts. Not alertable.
Maybe I'm missing aomething. How does that affect the lead?

I don't think 2N worked very well.

Dummy reversal. 3+ spade ruffs. 0/1 heart leads. Elopments, overruffs.

Interesting how our pen dbl now has us under fire.
If I didn't pass maybe 2N would work.

This had is not easy to get across to partner by any bid.
So I'm going for a combo.

Just 1 bad suit, not 2.

Now that the 5 has become the 4, fewer people are leading dias.

Or it's better overall if partner has the clubs (5) than the opps? Our dia lead breaks even in dias, loses a tempo in clubs, or loses in dias?

Is hoping partner has 1 more/better clubs than dias wrong or a guess?

I think a personal relationship and a bridge poll can have many more interesting aspects than a flying toupé and a simple yes/no.
Branch out into a scenic, graphicological, BW special, ranked answers poll.
Think of less sterile choices like: is she worth not being able to open 1N if I want to?

Aren't you great if you bid something you can't see, partner's shortness, but can't bid what you can see, your own hand.

Is saying that South can never pass like saying a hand that 3 is the exact right place can never exist or South is not entitled to make that assumption. Either 3 must be beaten or N/S have to have a place to play.
