It seems like I live on a totally different bidding planet.
South can t have a maximum with 6s in my world. (One of you previous suggestions)
In my world they also have about 32-33 HCP after this auction or why would they bid 6NT? In fact it doesnt look like a random auction, but a very clear one.
North never has only 3 clubs in my world for a 3 bid.

Still if I accept all of this, the hand you constructed is really constructed. Partner needs the 10 of s and the highest heart in dummy can t be higher that the 8, else it won t work.

Spade raise or splinter with 4

Indeed a very interesting session!
This board was simply odd at our table but still fascinating.

Please explain why? What would be the bid with a non-fit hand with 15 HCP?

I dont understand why he should have 6.
Both hands can be balanced. 5224 18-count opposite 2452 15-count.
We simply dont know enough here.
Partner can have the J or Q of and we give away a Trick that may decide.

By the way, I don t get why your answer needs to be so sarcastic. People post problems and want a honest idea. :-(

It was Swiss Acol, but after 2 the structure is as a standard 2/1 GF System. So I thought there is no need to explain it that precise, because also some 2/1 people play 2 as 5 card.

I agree with your -thoughts, but isn't a 3613 more likely, which gives his partner a 2362?
As Yordan said, I think many would at least consider doubling with KJxx-AKxxxx-x-?? sitting behind the person who bid 3s.
Also a 1363 hand with KJ10xxx doesnt seems crazy light to me.

Do you thrust partner or opponents?
Bidding by opponents is a bit strange, but not completly odd. 1C-1D-1H does not necessarily promise a unbalanced hand in their system.

As Richard said: He would have overcalled with 5s or 4 good s on 1 club.

At the table it was obvious for me but it seems its not.
I tell you what I thought and you tell me why it is wrong:
Partner can t have a classical NT-hand or he would have overcalled 1NT directly. So its clear he has singleton . Partner can t have 4 or he would have doubled 1. Partner can t have 5s or he would have bid over 1. Partner can t have 6 or he would have bid 2 before.

Isn t there only one shape possible?

I like the informations coming from the other table. It is annoying if you have to move from room to room all the time, but it makes it more thrilling if you know what they need to do.
I propose that you turn of the voice commetary if you don t want information.

Just one question:
What would double by partner on 1 mean? I assumed it shows 4s and a good hand that couldnt bid before. How can partner have 4s now?

It depends if 4NT would be Blackwood on 4. If you are sure partner will understand it as that, you can bid it.
You can t simply bid 7NT. My partners would bid 4 with KQJxx-KJxxxx or alike.

Most of the times you will need both kings for 7NT. Lets say 6 tricks in one major, 1 in the other, 2 diamonds and 3 clubs will be only 12 tricks.

With good 3 card support you will raise, so X just shows a good hand and a desire to play somewhere.
