Checkback off by passed hand?
Are you sure that opener should correct with 3433? Why can't responder have the same hand with the black suits reversed?
Checkback off by passed hand?
Re "What business does a passed hand have forcing the bidding to 2NT?": How light are your 1st/2nd seat opening bids? Does the auction P-1X-1Y-1NT-2NT not exist for you in a natural sense?
Louis Glasthal's bidding problem: AJxxx Ax Kxx Qxx
Correct. I would have mentioned such an unusual treatment in the OP.

Hi Robert, and thanks for the compliment :). Yes, this was with Mike. 6 seems a bit precipitous; partner will be 5-5 or better but his clubs don't need to be especially strong. Give partner a routine opening such as x KQJxx xx AJxxx and slam is terrible. Even ...

Louis Glasthal's bidding problem: AJxxx Ax Kxx Qxx
Congratulations to the lone 4 bidder, who was the only respondent that has any chance to get to an excellent slam opposite partner's x KQxxx xx AKJTx. I didn't find the 4 at the table, but my partner argued after the fact that I should have ...
when you, as opening bidder, have a 3-suited hand, you have shown two of them, and responder bids 4th suit forcing in your 3rd suit. What to do?
"The auction 1♦-1♠, 2♣-2♥, 3♥ should be reserved for 0-4-5-4 hands." Just curious, how do you handle 1=4=4=4 too strong to rebid 1NT?
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: J4 J96 JT63 Q653
It would help to know if there was an agreement regarding 2NT.
