My vote was for 3 and I can understand 1N, 2 and pass. But 4?

All my points are working, 3 aces, and a possible ruffing value are all positives. I think it's an easy decision at IMPs. I can't afford not to bid it and have them making 4 at the other tables.

I can understand someone passing, but that someone isn't me.

I don't think I've ever had a 2N opener and partner opened a strong 2 in front of me.

In that case you find the least lie.

I'm not nearly a good enough player to play at this level, but even I know enough to not play a card as dummy until declarer calls it (singletons and equivalent cards in the suit led excepted).

Not surprising. I don't know of any partnerships that have discussed this sequence.

Distribution beats points and vulnerable opponents generally don't offer their head on a platter. You still haven't told of your heart holding, but it couldn't have been too great.

Partner doubled 3N based on points, but the same can't be said for your double of 4H. You need tricks and points don't necessarily translate to tricks, especially when one opponent is advertising extreme distribution.

If I couldn't bid over 1, I'm certainly not going to now over 3N.

And I have faith in my partners. If there's a way to make it, they'll find it.

My spade support is lacking, but hopefully my outside winners will compensate.

Why did you double 4? What was your heart holding? You knew you had a 9 card spade fit.

5N, passing the buck.

Given my minor suits, it's more likely to go 1-1; 2 etc

South can't keycard until North shows a heart control. North should bid 4 over 4, then South can keycard, discover that 2 are missing, and get out below slam.

the hand held was not exceptional

So I take it that you would pass on the second round and reopen if 1 or 2 was passed back to you? Or would you have passed out 2?

Re: 2NT as showing 2 places to play

We had never discussed this, but it certainly has merit and I intend to add it to the list of things to consider. As I mentioned, we're still a new partnership there are some sequences that just haven't occurred yet. Thanks for the suggestion.
