If partner can set the contract with lead X, hard to see how opps can make if we cash A first. If I systematically know what suit to lead by all means lead it, if it just says find me I’m leading A.

Overcaller has embarked on a campaign to play 2 X without soliciting my thoughts on the matter. That may not be a good idea but at least I don’t have to play it.

Leads like the Q can work but often tip declarer off to a lead problem and declarer can benefit from that a fair amount of the time.

In a similar position, I asked DIC Steve Bates what options we had.

Though not necessarily what you were hoping for, 1 session pair and Swiss games are allowed.

Wrong Side of Memphis seems particularly appropriate given the bridge connotation.

Central BBQ is our favorite, but there are some good ones closer. We are not fans of the Rendezvous though others are.

Opening 1 is a psyche in my book but it is legal.

I don't know what the online process is, would imagine it depends on the forum, but it should be noted for future reference.

If this pair has a history of these methods, then appropriate action can be taken.

If I'm forcing game, why not show the diamond suit?

3 is NF in my book after 2/1 in comp.

Try 4 vs 3 with the North hand, see how much more interested South gets.

Game certainly could make and staying low will lose IMPs on occasion. Opener will often be short in spades which is a negative (for me, opener will often raise with 3514 min). Limping to a game is apt to get doubled when the hands do not fit well thus i think the IMP odds are worse than normal. Without a clear continuation (2H,2S,3C,other), i am going low. I will be in at least a 7 card fit which is not guaranteed in some other choices.

Consider that even If partner does have the major values needed for slam (not holding my breath) then the opponents might have a cheap save .

While I had seen a variation of this problem before, I was not aware of the source. Indeed I have been known to let loose with a pun now and then and this was just such an example. However I’d say Michael's comment beat me by about 20 years, since that was the title of the deal itself.

FWIW in the variation I first encountered the heart suit was KJx opp A9 and dummy had a 2nd club, the rest was mostly the same except a low heart was led.

Many variations on this one, if I accept what is my reward if I succeed?
There are some red herrings to be sure but you can count on a 100% line being achievable.

I interpreted that as after an overcall versus a TO double.
