Christopher Diamond's bidding problem: AJ AKQJ K8 Q9874
Richard, if they grab the diamond ace at trick 2 your 5 tricks start to diminish when you try to find pitches on spades. The spade bidder had Ax of clubs.
Christopher Diamond's bidding problem: AJ AKQJ K8 Q9874
OK, that was pretty overwhelming. Low level bridge game with my buddy who is a decent card player but just bids by the seat of his pants. He bid 3C that got whacked for -500. I thought 2NT was the book bid and that probably wouldn't have gotten hit ...

Can't help it. Tempo Breaking...Bad!
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
DB, so a diamond and a non-diamond lead could exist simultaneously? The diamond lead is only apparent upon east's observation. :-)
Christopher Diamond's bidding problem: JT9 KJ9874 --- AK76
Well done, Grasshopper. You are making progress. And now consider the Tao of 4D over 3NT. Got to admit, never occurred to me before, but I am going to drink some more and consider the implications. :-)
Christopher Diamond's bidding problem: JT9 KJ9874 --- AK76
I'll pass on the support double argument..had that too many times except to say there would likely have been a raise with Hxx. But trying to parse all the discussion above, notably MH, 3H is not a default with a small doubleton if you have a diamond stopper ...
Christopher Diamond's bidding problem: JT9 KJ9874 --- AK76
No support doubles. But it is likely that I would have raised with 3 hearts. I don't think it is extremely unreasonable because 3D was a general force that might imply but not guarantee 5 plus hearts. Backing into 3NT has been discussed if Hx is shown.
Christopher Diamond's bidding problem: JT9 KJ9874 --- AK76
No support doubles. Put in the original problem, forgot to add here.
Christopher Diamond's bidding problem: JT9 KJ9874 --- AK76
Yeah, I know. I think there was one vote for this in the original problem. There are corollaries that for instance, after a 2NT rebid by opener (non-playable, remember) 3C is forcing. It's a complicated hand and taking up a whole level with a 3D bid doesn't help ...

Support doubles still suck. Well outside a big club system the inventors played. Learn to play Moysians like a real player. Keep editing this. I have an easy way to show 3 card support..I raise. Thanks to your thoughtful bidding in LOS last time I got to show you ...
